Great advice apart from use a fugi tool. Best cheap tool most people have never heard of and only about £5 from ebay. Perfect lines every time. This tape in the deal is awful and looks terrible.



And use forever white sealant (it stays white)

Used previously & worked really well. Spend a few minutes warming it up to allow for adhesion ( a hair dryer was used in my case) and make sure the area is spotlessly clean

I tried some a while back and it worked really well. have ended up leaving it on as its done a better job than i could with silicone gun (or it appears the pro that originally sealed it....)

Only problem ive had is it doesnt look great

No, you need sealant, what you don't need is the existing stuff that's now covered with black mould

Get a Stanley knife and cut it all out, then buy proper bathroom silicone (not the ordinary type),
reapply and smooth out with a wet finger (not wetted from your mouth, that's just adding in bacteria)

Plenty of How-To guides on YouTube

(don't use the WD-40 trick, it doesn't work)
Edited by: "horsey" 14th Sep 2019
I bought one from Amazon which was alright to go around the bath. I also heated it with the hairdryer but put a very small layer or sealant along the top and bottom. I've had one of the bath before and it just started falling off when water got in the top of it. So far so good.

*I can't have sealant on it's own at there's a plastic trim that goes right up the back of the tiles and I can't get if off without destroying them which I'm not willing to do

No. You just need to start to clean your place... Oo that looks awful mate, it's your health on the line. Get it done asap.
apur3214/09/2019 00:10

What you need to do is remove what you have already. Then clean bathroom with bathroom mold remover . You can re-seal with sealant that is specific for bathroom and is anti mold. You can use this pvc offer over it though it's not needed. Once cleaned out you need to ventilate the bathroom after each use and must wipe down the shower after each use to keep the mold away. Black mold is a serious health hazard.

Other posts have good advice too.

Seriously?... Why ask for problems? Remove old silicone buy detol mold cleaner and reapply new one and then put the tape on if you so wish. But honestly no offence but you need to put some effort in your cleaning and maintenance..

Try Astonish Mould and Mildew Remover, give it a good spray over, shut the door and leave it well ventilated. It should start whitening up over night when you rinse it. It may take a couple of goes.

How long did it last? These things seem a temporary fix, using sealant is tricky, I messed up first time letting it dry then trying to smooth but at least it's sealed. Need to do it again (and order some silicone tools...) at some point but these might hide the mess, not sure they'll last for long though.

Squirt some thick bleach on it (proper Domestos, not supermarket pap) and leave it a few hours. Rinse off well. That will get rid of a lot of it.

It looks like all of the tiling and grout could do with scrubing with bleach too.

HG Mould Spray, expensive but it works. Do not get it anywhere near paint, it will peel off a few days later...
From my experience of fitting many many bathrooms the beat sealent is plumbers gold. Easy to work with and never ever goes mouldy.
Use silicone remover to get the old stuff off and apply the new sealant. Mould to shape using these. toolstation.com/cra…660
I normally clean up using acheap nti bac wipes.

Do you have a lack of ventilation in your bathroom? eg no extration fan?

That sort of mould is usually a sign of the condensation having no where to go after you take a shower. An extraction fan should resolve those issues I'd have thought. My mum's shower is the same and she has no extrator fan (another job for me to do!)

I moved into a rental and the bathroom was awful have repainted and tried to make it somewhat decent but the mold in the silicone remained i have used the mold and mildew and hg spray and its still there abit so i brought some of this tape from ebay didnt have high hopes but 2 months down the line its still there and looks alot tidier however i assume down this will make problems worse in the long run as mold will form underneath it but so far so good

Clean it with mould remover and best you can then let it dry and apply thats what i did looks alot tidier
If applying new silicone, then make sure 100% of old silicone is removed and you'll probably need silicone remover after mechanical removal with knife and scraper to get last residue. If you leave some on, then you'll just be bonding to old silcone that probably also contains mould spores.

After removal, de-grease surfaces with meths/pure alcohol to get the best bond.

Use a fugi like kit, watch a few youtube videos first.

I've had big problems even with a fugi kit if the corners are out significantly, it gets spread by the fugi, so don't be afraid to resort to masking tape.

I've always used mapei or dow corning silicone, if you're going to put the effort into the extensive prep required then always buy a good quality silicone.

Are you showering in there?
Anyone that has black mouldy silicone can use bleach but then put cotton wool balls on it to hold the bleach to the surface, leave overnight and remove cotton wool and rinse, repeat any patches you missed. Don't thank me just send beer.
