Hi guys, wondering if any of you have any cleaning tips for mold spots on interior paneling?, I have just got my first proper van (other than an old nail i used for bike racing) and have found a few spots in a bathroom panel . Do you have any tips for cleaning it ? I've tried fairy liquid and a toothbrush with no joy

Mould is best removed with a bleach type product. Plenty of them in the supermarket. Failing that a solution of plain water with a little  bleach added should shift it. Test an inconspicuous area first as they say. Never experienced mould in any of my vans. May have a damp issue.

Nothing on Mold but there is lots on mould See mould and mildew

 

However, dip a damp cloth into bi-carbonate of soda powder and rub with that. Let us know how you get on please.

Possibly.  It is chlorine based.  But so is bleach.

Going to try the bicarb option as I think bleach products will damage the panels

That is a possibility, but only bleach based, or other specifically anti-mould products are likely kill the invisible spores.

If spores remain, the mould is likely to return.
