Help identify a musty smell in a bathroom?

Our small main floor 2-piece bathroom has had a musty smell for the last couple of months. We can't seem to identify the source and aside from the smell there is no sign that anything is wrong. We had a plumber in and he spotted a very small amount of (orangy coloured) mould inside the toilet tank, but even after cleaning that up with MoldEx the smell has not abated. What could it be?

Is the exhaust in the bathroom for the smell or the humidity?

Is the exhaust in the bathroom for the smell or the humidity? In other words: is it used to make it smell better, or is it used to make sure the room dries out better?

Something is rotten in my state (not Denmark).

Last Wednesday I was assaulted by a foul smell in my front (guest) bathroom. I have been trying to pinpoint the cause for several days. I'm about to go out of town and need advice on what to do, especially since I'm extremely broke and have tried all the usual methods of attack. Details inside... [more inside]

Shower causing bad smell

An extremely foul smell (not a shit smell -- I can't place it) has been starting up in my bathroom a short time after the shower is turned on. It doesn't seem to be the water itself that smells, but I can't tell where the smell comes from. When the shower is off, the smell eventually clears and doesn't return until the shower is turned on again. Any idea what could be going on?

Will no one rid my bathroom of these troublesome smells?

VentilationFilter: My apartment's cramped little bathroom has a small window and no exhaust fan. It's getting cold here in Michigan and I'd rather not open the window to ventilate. Any brilliant ideas short of bashing holes in the wall and ceiling to install a real exhaust fan?
