Cleaning mold?

I am staying at my aunts house for the week. My mommom is disabled and lives with my aunt, and my aunt is on vacation, and mommom cannot be by herself so I have to stay here with her.
I gave my daughter a shower last night and noticed there was black mold in the grouting ( I think thats what it is called).
I tried to clean it today with bleach, lysol, Kaboom, everything, but it will not come out!!! Anyone know how to get it out?

  • If its black mold it can be really dangerous and I would check the basement and other places to make sure it isnt growing in those places. If it is it can be coming through ventilation systems and can cause illness. You might have to call a professional to remove it.
    I use bleach mixed with water to tackle reg mold issues and it usually works. You can also try arm and hammer bathroom scrub. That works really well.

  • I say vinegar and baking soda too. Make like a paste a let it sit for a few minutes then scrub with a brush. Good luck!

  • Tilex. The Orange and white bottle not the one with the green
