If you dont mind spending, you could get a ventilator and fix to your toilet window. In the long run, it really helps take away the moisture.

Is it possible that this is due to high humidity in the area that you're staying. I've this problem too and I think it is due to staying at Punggol.

It's common to get mould on the ceiling of toilets as when we take hot baths, hot air rises and condenses on the ceiling.
This provides moisture necessary for mould to grow, especially when we don't ventilate the toilet.

You can read more about what to do if you find mould in your home here https://zenithlab.com.sg/what-to-do-if- ... d-at-home/

Ventilate your toilet by opening the windows and door, or by having a ventilator at the window
If problem persists, you might need to get a dehumidifier in your home
You can try getting rid of mould by using a mixture of vinegar and water
If the mould is serious, you can consider hiring a mould removal specialist.

We tried this one at home and I am happy to tell that the mixture of vinegar and water really works. Thank you for sharing your idea on how to get rid of this problem. :goodpost:

I am seeing several DIY tutorials that sodas (coke to be specific) is a great toilet cleaner? Has anyone tried to use it at home? Is it really effective?
