How do I remove mildew from walls and ceilings?
My bathroom has some mildew on the walls and ceilings and I desperately want to get rid of it. How can I remove it? How do I prevent mildew from coming back?
The mildew must be killed first. A good household bleach product will usually do the trick. Let the area dry and then paint it with a stain block product (such as Kilz) and then top it with a mildew-resistant paint.
