Claire Sutton replied: “If the water has got underneath, the only way to remove it is by resealing it and removing the old stuff.

“You shouldn’t use bleach on mould as it feeds it and only bleaches the spores and doesn’t kill them.

“If a mould and mildew remover hasn’t removed it, it’s best to just replace it.

“Will be cheaper than trying loads of different brands and is a relatively simple DIY job.”

Maryam Mari Virtanen agreed and wrote: “Resealing is the best option.”

Alison Bushell said: “Cillit Bang Black Mould Remover is brilliant.

“Mine was way worse than that and now they look like new.”

Gemma Bolton replied: “Cillit Bang, soak cotton wool in it press it on and leave overnight.”

Lauren Schofield said: “Astonish Mould and Mildew spray. Can get it from supermarkets.”
