    I quit using mylar years ago, it is such a PITA. So, my recommendations would be to take all the old mylar down. Scrub everywhere with a product meant to kill mold and then follow up with a bleach solution. Use a good quality flat white paint. A water base paint is fine.

    From everything I have read, flat white paint is the best.

    My company used to sell commercial shower curtains for hotels and hospitals. Mold and mildew treated, nice white color and very washable. I used them because I had a bunch of them but if I were starting fresh, flat white paint would be my choice.

    If this helps you.....

    If you're using a digital point and shoot camera, go into the settings on the camera menu and change the resolution. On the menu it might say, 3456 x 2304 (8 MP) or 2592 x 1728 (4.5 MP). There will be a lower setting like 1920 x 1280 (2.5 MP). Set it there. Or, even lower at 720 x 480 (0.35 MP).

    If you're using your phone (and, I caution against using a phone to take pot pics in a non-legal state) you can also change the resolution in the settings. However, if using your phone, there's a good chance that you are sync'd to some kind of cloud that automatically stores and backs up your phone pictures. If so, you can go to your cloud and click on the picture you want to post. Copy the URL and when you come here to post, click the "Manage Attachments" button and select the "Upload File from a URL" option. Then, paste your URL and select upload.

    More than a few people have trouble posting pics on forums. You certainly see your share of sideways pics on all the forums. LOL

    Let me know if I can help.
