/ Getting rid of mould on walls with natural products
I know it's important to try to keep things dry and ventilated, but in this room the mould still forms in winter.
Has anyone found any natural products that work?
If it gets too bad and you want a natural cleaner then white vinegar or baking soda solution.
I know you'd like something more gentle, but regular household bleach in dilute solution is probably your best bet. It' not so unhealthy, you can use it to purify water for drinking after all (the dose makes the poison). You want to kill the mould, so anything you use will be at least a bit hostile to life if it's going to work!
After that, pay attention to prevention: remove water whenever required with squeegee and lots of ventilation!
As above, cheap basics bleach (without the extra crap they put in it to make random new products to flog to those with too much cash) is your friend and when futures in the sewerage system isn't too problematic as it gets broken down quite readily.
Insulation and ventilation is the real answer to the problem.
Keep a squeegee in the shower and squeegee the walls and door after use. For any bits of mould that do form, soak some loo roll or kitchen paper in bleach and stick them on the affected area for a while. It's environmentally friendly in that you have little to do with the process and the bleach only goes where it's needed.
