A few Black mould marks have appeared on the grouting on the tiles on the surround at the bottom of the shower

You can use bleach and an old toothbrush but I have found H&J mould spray very good. It is widely available

Kilrock Mould spray works very well and is a bit easier to get hold of

Yes, I think he does.

I've found that (for minor problems at least) the Tesco mould/mildew spray works perfectly well (Edit: for roughly a quarter the price of HG) - can't say the same for Sainsburys stuff.

I don't know if it's any different to HG, it smells like bleach to me, but I've not smelt the HG stuff.
One day it will all be firewood.

It smells like bleach and ammonia to me (can be nasty if not mixed correctly)
