Project Overview

Mould is a type of fungi that can build up quickly in moist, unventilated places like bathrooms or laundries. Making sure your bathroom is free from mould keeps it looking fresh and a much healthier place to be. The simplest way to remove mould is to use an anti-mould spray and a bit of old fashioned elbow grease. Continue to step-by-step instructions

Step by Step Instructions

1 Spray the anti-mould cleaner onto the mould
2 Wipe the surface clean
  • Step 1. Spray the anti-mould cleaner onto the mould

    Spray the anti-mould directly onto the mouldy areas, making sure to follow the instructions on the bottle. Then simply wait a few minutes for the spray to do its job. There are lots of different anti-mould sprays to choose from, including some designed for delicate painted surfaces.
  • Step 2. Wipe the surface clean

    After you’ve left the anti-mould spray to do its job (the instructions on the pack should tell you how long), grab a cloth and wipe it clean. If the mould is not coming off straight away, a little application of elbow grease should help. For the hard to reach areas like grout, it’s a great idea to use an old toothbrush.
