Bleach should never be mixed with other chemicals. Doing so could create Chlorine gas. Most commercial bleach formulas have harsh fumes and no fragrances. This is because the concentration needs to be super strong and fragrances are affected by the bleach. The shelf life of the product is relatively short.
Most surfaces don’t need to be rinsed after use.

Hydrogen Peroxide, sometimes called oxygen bleach is an antiviral, antibacterial, antimicrobial, antifungal and disinfecting solution. It is environmentally friendly and natural, breaking down into oxygen and water. It leaves no toxic residue and any fumes will be pure oxygen. It is a very effective and powerful mould remover and killer. Although more effective at removing mould than bleach, it is less effective than bleach at bleaching. So although it is removing the mould it may not be bleaching the stains caused by the mould. Unlike bleach, Hydrogen Peroxide does require scrubbing to remove the stain and may require multiple applications. Hydrogen Peroxide is perceived to be weaker and slower working than bleach but is much more effective at removing mould long term.
Hydrogen Peroxide is effective on both porous and non-porous surfaces to remove mould. This is achieved by rapid oxidation of the mould and its ability to penetrate porous materials to “burn” or oxidise the mould’s root system. This is useful as the product bubbles and fizzes when it comes into contact with organic material like mould and mildew.
The shelf life of the product is relatively short. Hydrogen Peroxide releases oxygen with increasing heat and expands easily in plastic bottles. The product labels often look stretched.

Sealing your grout after removing the mould or mildew helps to prevent mould and mildew regrowth. Reducing or removing the moisture will prevent the mould from regrowing.
