Dettol Mould & Mildew Remover
Advantages: Works very fast and is effective at preventing further build-up of mould.
Disadvantages: Smells awful. Will stain clothes.
Most bathrooms will get a build up of mould on the walls and ceilings after a while. It's unavoidable. I used to spend ages trying to wipe it all off with a sponge and bathroom cleaner, but even though it got the surface mould off, it always left black stains that just would not shift. Then I found this stuff, so thought I'd give it a go and see whether it was any good.
The cleaner comes in an easy-to-use plastic bottle with a trigger spray that you can turn on and off. I found it sprayed easily without getting jammed. The liquid inside has a very strong smell of bleach. You have to use it in a well-ventilated area and avoid breathing in the mist. It really is very strong! All you do is give the nozzle a twist to turn it on, then give the area you need to clean a couple of sprays, keeping the bottle upright, and wait no longer than five minutes. You can actually see the mould disappear as it works. If any spots remain, give another couple of sprays till it's all gone, then wipe off with water and allow to dry. Keep the window open for a while afterwards to allow the smell to dissipate. I found that once you used this spray, the mould took ages to return. The spray means that you can reach places on ceilings without the need to climb onto something in order to get high enough.
One word of warning....wear old clothes when you use this stuff as if you get any of the spray on you (if you are spraying above you, drops will fall onto your clothes) it will remove colour from fabric. I ruined a good cardigan the first time I used it!
It goes without saying that you must not spray this stuff towards you or get any in your eyes and also keep well away from children! Wear rubber gloves too as it will irritate your skin.
The sprays is good for surfaces such as: Chrome & stainless steel, formica & plastics, ceramic basins & toilets, acrylic bath tubs & showers, glazed ceramic tiles & white grouting.
You cannot use it on: Old or damaged surfaces, coloured grouts, rubber, unglazed tiles, enamel, painted, varnished & gold-plated surfaces, wood & laminate floors, textiles & carpets, linoleum, polyamide & polycarbonate plastics.
If you use this spray in the kitchen, please make sure it doesn't get onto food or utensils. Do not empty it down the sink either, as it will contaminate the drains. Obviously keep it well away from pets too.
The ingredients in this spray are: 5% Nonionic Surfactant, Disinfectant (Sodium Hypochlorite 2.59% w/w), Perfume.
Not sure what they mean about perfume though.....it really smells horrible!
At least it does the job though. My bathroom looks almost brand new when I've used this stuff! A bottle lasts ages too, so well worth the £2.91 I paid!
I've since used Dettol Mould and Mildew Remover in other rooms. My son's bedroom got mould on the ceiling from condensation in the winter and it got rid of it in five minutes. I made sure I covered all his bed with old towels to prevent his bedding from getting ruined from the droplets.
I can thoroughly recommend this mould remover. It gets the job done quicly and effectively.
Summary: A very fast and effective mould remover.
