Re: Fungicide for wall

If you want to go the non chemical route

- white vinegar deluted with water

Otherwise bleach

Any do it yourself store such as Hornbach, Obi etc as well as larger pharmacies carry products for mold removal.

Re: Fungicide for wall

I used this stuff on our stippled ceiling above the shower, which was getting mouldy:

Just sprayed it on liberally - it stank of bleach for several days, but has stayed pristine white for several years.

White vinegar is "Tafelessig" in German. It's usually located close to where the sunflower and olive oils are sold. There is also "Putzessig" sold in some stores, which is the kind of vinegar intended to be used for cleaning, but either would work.

Bleach (DE: Javel wasser) or UV-C light (so desinfection lamp) for chemical free solution.


Bleach is in any Lidl/coop/migros etc. in cleaning section. (also saw it in Coop Bau Hobby and other DIY markets)

My thoughts exactly! Wear protective equipment, especially a respirator mask, if spraying vinegar (acid) or bleach (corrosive alkaline solution).


You can also buy Schimmelentferner in the shops. Usually you need several/many applications


Bleach and such-like often gives visually satisfactory results but can actually make the situation worse in the parts you can't see.
