Contrary to what most people think, bleach does not kill mold. Mold is a fungus, and it sends roots into the material on which it is attached. The ion structure of a bleach solution prevents the bleach from penetrating any porous surface so only the water part penetrates and the bleach sits on the surface. Bleach is typically 5% bleach (sodium hypochlorite) and 95% water.
