Default Mold on painted drywall

Hello. Our bathroom has a mold problem - both dark, blackish mold that crops up in patches, and circular, faintly pink mold.

The mold is on the painted drywall. Is there any product that could get rid of it without ruining the paint? Also, any home remedies that you could suggest would be great, for example, I've heard vinegar works, but it didn't work well when I last tried.

Thanks!

Default ok

Bleach, water, and lots of elbow grease. Let it dry, then make sure you have an exaust fan in the bathroom that that vents to the outside,and stays on for 5 minutes after you are out of the shower....so this happens less.
Good luck.

Default Nope

You will b fine with bleach and water. And a good rag.
Sometimes you cannot get the stuff under the paint, so after you wash, you may need to prime and paint again. DO NOT use the prime and paint in one they sell at the box stores. Us kilz or zinssinger primers.
Good luck , hope it comes out first try.
