  • bleach left on for a while is all that works for me. like pp I put it in a spray bottle. I have used CLR before too and it helped, but again it had to sit.

  • make a paste with baking soda, vinegar and salt; add a couple of drops of tea tre oil; scrub with an old toothbrush

  • All the above answers are correct, but sometimes after years of it being there, you need to pull up the old caulk and re-caulk again.

  • If none of the above help - I would recommend stripping the caulk out and replacing with silicone.
