Default How to Clean Mildew/Mold on Shower Caulking

Small areas of mildew/mold have begun to appear on the shower caulking. Does anyone have a suggested remedy?

Thanks.

If you can find it, Comet Spray Gel Mildew Stain Remover works better than anything else we've tried, including Simple Green, Clorox, and Dishwasher gel. We haven't seen this product lately but we keep looking. Comet makes other similar products but the "Spray Gel" seems to be the best for the job.

Do a search here on "Mold Armour." That seems to work well. Only available at Publix.

I have a spray bottle filled with 50% water and 50% clorox bleach. Spray it on those black spots, let sit for a little while and rinse thoroughly. Works great for me and is certainly economical. Be sure to label your spray bottle so you know the contents.

Thanks to a previous post I tried Mold Armor from Publix and it is the best. I just spray the nasties after showering and they are are gone.

Our contractor said, Fresh water mixed with pure white vinigar?

Of course I forgot the ratio!

I found Clorox Cleanup does a great job.
