    Hi Susanne,
    It might be a little more work, but using borax, white distilled vinegar and hydrogen peroxide to keep mold at bay really does wonders in the bathroom. The key I believe is misting the interior of the tub and shower areas with vinegar on a regular basis so I do not have to break out the bleach and its toxic fumes.
    I have found tea tree oil to be some pretty good stuff as well. And, just a little goes a long ways.
    Good Read and Best,
    Wesley

    When we spray on the vinegar, borax, water mixture to kill mold
    can we just leave it on? Rinsing is a problem as there are decks

    With the vinegar and borax spray the advice is to leave it on if you don’t mind the vinegar smell. My new house has peg board over concrete walls and the mold is behind (and probably in) the peg board. By leaving the spray on it has a chance to penetrate and provide longer-lasting effect. So far so good. There is also a dehumidifying desiccant — a granule that absorbs water. Eva-Dry is a brand name of a product that comes in a size for a 500 cubic-foot space — plastic case filled with granules. The granules absorb water and when full a color indicator tells you. You then plug the case into an electic outlet and it dries out the granules for re use. I have a 1000 cubic-foot room to deal with so I got two from Amazon for $50. Too soon to tell how it works, but it beats a $200 dehumidifer and electric costs.
