Cleaning Mouldy Bathroom Walls

Mix 2 drops of Oil of Cloves (which kills the mould spore) and a litre of water in a spray bottle, shake and mist thoroughly over the offending mouldy surface. Leave this on overnight so the oil can work on the mould - and the following day – steam up the room by turning on the hot tap for a while, then (using a parmesan cheese shaker), sprinkle the walls with bicarb soda, spray with white vinegar and scrub while it’s fizzing using a broom with pantyhose over the bristles.

Will this also kill mildew on shower grout? Also, will Oil of Cloves upset the function of my aerobic septic system?

You can also use hot water with soap and baking soda to remove most of the mold.

Shannon, this treatment just did not work. Followed your instructions to the letter and it made no difference at all to the mould in the grout. Even used a scrubbing brush!

Does this work with grout? I bought an enormous bottle of clove oil because I am desperate to rid my shower grout of mold. I now know that I do not care for the scent of cloves, but if it works, I will carry on...
