    how to combat the mold?

    Every year when the humidity comes back, we get a surge of mold growing in the corners of our rooms. This year it is especially bad and has invaded our children's room as well. We've started running the a/c again recently, hoping that it will help. In the past, we've scrubbed the wall with a bleach solution, but that only works temporarily.

    Does anyone else have this problem? It's really gross and I want it gone. What can we do?

    Thanks
    All the best,
    Katie

    We don't have a dehumidifier. We have a small flat, so not a lot of space. We usually have the windows open, unless the a/c or heater is on.

    Vinegar is the best way to stop it from growing back - bleach never works. Just wipe/clean surfaces with white vinegar.

    do you dilute it at all or use straight vinegar?

    I am running dehumidifiers in all the rooms to prevent the mold. That way I am also protecting my furniture, clothing, etc.
