    A bleach and water mixture should do it @ellie2000. :) If it keeps happening, it means your house is damp, so look for anything that might be making your house wet. A common one is people drying washing inside without having enough ventilation.
    The truth resists simplicity.

    Hey @ellie2000 - great question, I've had to deal with this problem a lot. I hope these tips can help:
    • Try to keep your house well ventilated where possible
    • Wipe windows down if they are wet in the morning
    • Use anti-mould sprays when there is a build up
    • If it's in the edges of a wall or tiles, use a bleach and water mixture with tissue paper; press the wet paper into the spaces and leave over night

    I hope this helps!

    I agree, with all of the advice above. To be totally honest, the most effective immediate treatment for mould are cheapish sprays like this:


    However, that obviously does not stop mould from forming in the first place. Given this, some people opt for relatively cheap preventative tools like:

    1) disposable dehumidifiers
    2) anti-mould paint
    3) try to wrap up warm if you're at home all day rather than turning the heating on and off (I suggest this because most people can't afford to have the heating on all day to avoid mould from forming).

    I hope some of these suggestions can be useful for you @ellie2000 <3
