Astonish Mould and Mildew Blaster: The Magic Solution for Silicone Sealant Mould

Mould growth on silicone sealants is a common problem in UK homes, particularly in bathrooms and kitchens. While silicone is water-resistant, it can still succumb to mould in damp environments. One homeowner, seeking advice on the Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips and Tricks Facebook page, lamented about black mould appearing behind the silicone sealant on her shower glass screen. She had tried bleach overnight, but it only worsened the problem. This is because bleach merely bleaches the colour of the mould, not killing it. It can even encourage the mould to grow deeper and stronger.

Instead of bleach, Mrs Hinch fans recommended Astonish Mould and Milder Blaster. One user shared a picture of the product and claimed to swear by it. Another user reported that it works like magic, requiring no scrubbing or soaking. Simply spray the affected area, leave it on for as long as desired, and then rinse with the shower. The mould disappears completely.

Astonish’s cleaning expert, Olivia Young, previously explained that their specialist cleaner contains an active formula that eliminates mould immediately and prevents its return for months. She recommends spraying the affected area, leaving it for two to three minutes, and then wiping it clean without any scrubbing. Astonish Mould and Mildew Blaster can be found at Lakeland for £2.99 or in a pack of three at B&Q for £8.67.

While Astonish is a popular recommendation, Mrs Hinch fans have also previously suggested HG mould spray, available for £5.25 on Amazon and £6 at Wickes.
