3 All-Natural Mold and Mildew Fighters
If you have very minor mold problems, like those tiny traces commonly found near poorly-sealed windows, then you may be able to tackle the job yourself. If this is the case, then you will want to do so in a way that is safe, effective, and environmentally friendly. Read on to learn about 3 all-natural mold and mildew fighters you may have lying around the home.
- Tea tree oil – Make a spray by combining two cups of water with two teaspoons of tea tree oil in a standard spray bottle. Shake well, and spray this solution anywhere that you have identified traces of mold and mildew. Allow this pungent mix to sit and work before wiping away.
- Distilled vinegar – Vinegar kills over 80% of any mold it comes into contact with, and will deter new spores from growing when used as a regular cleaning solution. You can mix your vinegar cleaner with some lemon oil if you want to eliminate the smell.
- Baking soda – The ultimate all-purpose item, baking soda is a great choice if you need a mild disinfectant. Mix with water in a spray bottle with enough water to avoid a paste-like consistency, then apply where needed.
