Alright guys, I have a hallway bathroom (that is currently our only one while we are remodeling!) and it has a mold problem. It keeps a case of mold and mildew in the ceiling since we use it. I've cleaned it and kept cleaning it, and it keeps coming back! I've tried running the vent fan, and it keeps coming back! The bathroom only measures 94x64 inches and has 10ft ceilings. I am going to try a dehumidifer or something to keep the moisture levels down in there. Any suggestions? Anything else I should try?

Its like a (silly censor)roach, the Wrangler - you can't kill it And now there's a four door. Joy.

Most cleaners just kill the surface growth, not the roots. You have to kill it, repaimt, and then keep the moisture down. Amything else is just futility.
Odds are im typing on a tablet. It takes too much effort to add some punctuation. Im lazy, get over it

Never underestimate the power of stupid.

But, if repainting with a stain blocking primer/paint isn't viable at this time, best thing to do in this case is run the vent fan while showering/bathing and keep running the vent fan for some time afterwards, and creating avoid excessively hot/steamy conditions that is conducive to mold growth. I think money would be better put toward a floor fan to blow air into the bathroom after showering, to circulate the damp air and help the moisture get out of the enclosed space.

Also, as long as this is the only bath available, avoid taking hot and steamy showers/baths in this small space.
