Removing shower mold?

Warren from Tauranga has sent out an SOS. “Does anyone have any suggestions to remove black mold from grey silicone in a tiled shower base that is constantly wet in winter.” If you can help with his moldy problem, please let us know and we will pass it on to Warren.

    I spray our shower with bleach. Leave for 30 minutes or so and then rinse off. The longer you can keep it on the better – SPS, Waikato

  • Warren also asked about cleaning glass & removing mould from silicon sealing in showers.
    I use steel wool grade 0000 for cleaning the glass in my shower, used wet or dry it does a fantastic job. I got sick of buying expensive cleaners that didn’t really work so started searching on Professor Google for a solution. I would prefer to use bronze wool as it doesn’t rust and lasts much longer therefore making more cost effective but it’s unavailable here in New Zealand. It can be purchased from the USA but postage it quite expensive. I will order some soon though and use the NZ Post YouShop as cost will be much lower. Still working on the mouldy silicone sealer problem but will post if I find and answer.
