I attack the windows with Teatree oil every week (on average). I've also got an Ozkleen mould killer (bleach doesn't kill mould as much as it bleaches it into hiding) but it smells disgusting, so I only use it on the days I can have the house open. (I live in Melbourne, so we get maybe 3 days a year where it’s not stupidly hot, stupidly cold, stupidly windy, or stupidly wet… Some days we get all 4 within an hour.)
Unfortunately we're in a rental, and the landlord won't fix the windows. They're not very well sealed, but now I think about it most of the moister is probably coming from having two adults sleeping in such a small bedroom.
The biggest problem I have is dust coming in through the small gaps. It's like a little desert on my windowsill every few days, lol.
I'll defiantly look into a dehumidifier, it hadn't occurred to me.
Bit of luck it’ll help the room feel a bit less sticky on those hot nights as well.
