When my landlords came over to fix our washing machine, they said something every tenant (and especially in Germany here & here) dreads, "Es gibt Schimmel here!" Schimmel is mildew and we have have it in our bathroom.
This picture is next to the shower where there is NO SHOWER CURTAIN. Even though we keep the windows open (Brrrr) & put a towel down, it doesn't seem to stop the mildew from growing.
This is actually in the shower.
I went to DM, Rossman and Schlecker (all stores like Walgreens minus drugs) but I didn't find anything specifically for Schimmel. The Scientist suggested looking at Bauhaus (a German Home Depot) where we found this - worth its weight in gold.
I simply sprayed it on, left it there for an hour
and then wiped it off!
Now if only someone could tell me what product gets out the white hard water stains...
