    Yes! I would love to know this! I have a Bosch front loader about 4 years old and the rubber seals are covered in black mould

    I would try diluted bleach & a good scrub. I tend to leave the door open after a wash so the seal dries out.

    White king on a white cloth. Wash until no more mould and then run a drum clean.
    I've needed to do mine for months but df has honestly hidden the white king so I can't use it- he uses it to clean his white walls
    (Yes, I know I should just buy more, but it's also the principle!)

    When it comes to mould, things like bleach and exit mould don't kill the mould they just bleach it so you can't see it. You need to use oil of cloves to kill the spores then run a hot wash to wash it off works a treat!
