Here’s a great natural remedy you may want to try if you have stubborn mold spots in the bathroom or other damp areas.
Here’s What You Need:
Pure Tea Tree Oil
An Open Window (Where Possible)
Sponge, Cloth and towel
- The first step to eliminating mold is to prevent it from growing in the first place. If your room has fan, use it. If it doesn’t, open a window in the bathroom, or open the bathroom door to keep air moving. This is very important and an very effective way to prevent the growth of mold.
- Mix 2 teaspoons of tea tree oil with two cups of water and add it to a spray bottle. If you’re using this in the bathroom, spray surfaces regularly.
- To actively remove mold, spray the solution directly to the mold and leave for an hour before using a scub brush to remove the debris. A toothbrush can be used to reach those fine areas.
- Spray your chosen green cleaner on affected areas and let sit for several minutes up to an hour. Using a scrub brush or a sponge, wipe down the walls of the shower. You might need to put a little elbow grease into it, but don’t resort to bleach, which only temporarily makes the mold disappear. Toothbrushes work great on the mold joints.
Note: Don’t rinse off the tea tree oil after application. Just leave it to do its magic.
White vinegar can also be used in a similar way but we love tea tree oil for its boosted anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties.
