What is the best and safest way to kill mold in the bathroom?

We have mold on our shower stalls and on our shower ceiling, anyone have a way other than bleach that works? We've tried bleach mixed with ALOT of elbow grease and got most of it off, but there is still some there.

  • If you have a plastic or vinyl type of shower stall....once you get the mold off (all I know is good old bleach and elbow grease too) try wiping it down with rain X (like you would use on the wind shield of your car....it helps deflect the moisture down and keep it from settling where mold can form.

  • the only thing i know that works is bleach try it again but dont water it down as much you may need to get a pro to make sure it isnt that deadly mold

  • Bleach is the only thing that works, but it will come back. do you have proper ventilation in the bathroom? If not you will probally have to repeat this process every 6 - 9 months. (in the same boat)

  • I was hoping for a good answer on here as well, we do not have proper ventilation (go Army!!) in our bathrooms.

    The only thing I know of is bleach and elbow grease.....
