I’ve had good luck with a damp washcloth (mild soap and water) attached to my swiffer like I would a standard dust cloth- it lets you reach all the way up the walls and scrub a little as necessary without stripping paint. Rinse, repeat.

Unless your bathroom was painted with flat paint (texture feels/ acts like chalk), in which case skip the washing and just repaint with a semi-gloss that you can actually clean.

Luckily, when my mother bought the paint (I chose the color scheme, she painted the bathroom while my boyfriend & I were out of town for a week), she knew mildew resistance and gloss were important for a bathroom. I still have the cans in my basement. I’ll report back when I’m supposed to be awake.
