    Person named Grauniad or something lists bleach, vinegar and ammonia. Use the vinegar alone and forget the other two. Also, ESPECIALLY do not mix bleach with any other agent, or you will get chloramine and other bad gases.

    Exhaust fan in the bathroom, even with one. One must on occasion go throughout the walls and ceiling and wipe them down.

    Laundry must and mold, first load is alwasy one with bleach, so it cleans out the machine. Never allow cloths to sit in the washer after it has finished, alwasy leave the door open so it can air out when not in use.

    You need to reduce the humidity inside the house.   Like those hot showers cover the walls in moisture frequently. That will cause a mold problem.  Exhaust the bathroom air when you take a shower.

    You only get mould because of high levels of moisture. That may be your local climate or a problem with water ingress, or poor ventilation. Solve that and the mould should not occur. Treat the cause, not the symptom.

    You need a exhaust fan.  Mold in bathroom is a moisture issue.  Jf you have a exhaust fan it may needs to be cleaned. The grill snaps off an can ve ckeaned in a sink.  You'll need to c l ean blower wheel which can be done with compressed air.

    don't mix bleah an ammonia I know he was listening cleaners but just to be safe figured I say that it is be deadly.

    Bleach. Vinegar. Ammonia.

    Keep an airflow going.  If there is a window, open it to let out the steam when you have a bath or shower.  If there is a ventiliation system, use it whenever you use the bathroom.  Clean regularly.  If your clothes are getting mouldy, then they are remaining damp for too long.
