How to remove black mould: Staple item ‘works wonders’

Black mould in bathrooms can be caused by steam which is unable to escape the room. The steam condenses onto cooler surfaces like tiles and walls and in between grout. This then causes black mould to grow.

Black mould can be harmful to people’s health. It can cause respiratory problems, allergic reactions, watery, itchy eyes, sneezing, coughing and a runny nose.

With this in mind, fans of cleaning sensation Mrs Hinch, whose full name is Sophie Hinchliffe, have shared their simple solution for getting rid of black mould from bathrooms.

The cleaning and lifestyle influencer has more than 4.5 million followers on Instagram and often shares her garden and home tips online.

Facebook user Liz Poultney asked Mrs Hinch fans: “My son is in university accommodation and has mould along the edges of his tiny, unventilated bathroom (mainly on the silicone).

“Any tips for safely treating the mould without damaging our health as there are no windows to open? Thanks.”

Rhian Harber said: “Cillit Bang black mould spray. Wipe on with a sponge, leave for half an hour and wipe.

“Also, invest in an electric dehumidifier and it’ll remove moisture from the air, ventilate it and keep the air dry.

“Run just for say an hour a day. Don’t bother with mini window ones as there’s no window for ventilation.

“You’ll need an electric one to keep on top of the damp air. Assuming there’s a plug outside the bathroom that can be used.”

Jayne Britton wrote: “I know that bleach isn’t supposed to work. I tackled a similar issue in my grandparent’s bathroom.

“I used Kilrock spray and it is yet to return. I would also maybe buy those mini dehumidifiers for the future.”

Spencer Tracy commented: “Any mould and mildew spray. I use Kilrock in a black bottle then get him a portable dehumidifier for room. It will absorb water out of the air.”

Jeanette Frances suggested: “Mould and mildew removing spray. Astonish and HG do good ones. Spray and leave a while, then rinse off.”
