--=======A0E698B======= Content-Type: text/plain; x-avg-checked=avg-ok-66C851DA; charset=us-ascii; format=flowed Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit Hi Jane, I used a small spray bottle with a 10 percent solution of pool chlorine (kitchen bleach would do) to zap mould on my wall. It took only a minute or two once a week to keep the mould under control until the wall dried (and the weather warmed). I was working in winter and the air was damp and around ten to fifteen degrees Celcius. My mould was a bit like white fluffy cotton wool.
