How can I remove mold from my bathroom ceiling and keep it from coming back? I’ve tried bleach and water with no luck.
Buy a commercial cleaner with a mildew remover and clean the area thoroughly. Make sure it dries completely. Then (we hate to say this), you’ll have to repaint. Use a paint that contains an additive that fights mildew. A hardware store or paint store can advise you on this. Finally, eliminate the moist and humid conditions that allow mildew to thrive. Make sure your bathroom has adequate ventilation, and install a fan if you don’t already have one.
