You might love reaching for the clean smell of bleach whenever you see mould building up in your house, but evidence shows it is not the best at treating the horrible substance.
The best goal you can have is to try and prevent mould and mildew from growing in the first place. This you can do by:
So what other items can we use to remove mould when it rears its ugly head? We have discovered a couple of alternative ways to get rid of tough mould patches that aren’t going to cause you any grief.
1. Tea tree oil or clove oil and water (the most effective method and the favourite here at Starts at 60)
This combination is usually the most effective method of naturally removing mould. Add 15 drops of your chosen oil into a spray bottle – prefer oil of cloves to all the others. Spray onto mouldy areas and leave for two hours, spray a bit more, wipe away.
2. Straight, white vinegar
This combination is said to kill around 82 percent of mould colonies. So, if for some reason you’re not into using clove or tea tree oil and want the next best thing, vinegar is for you. Just pop some straight vinegar into a spray bottle, spray, leave for an hour, wipe off with warm water.
And now for something completely different, did you know vodka is great for cleaning? The cheaper the better.
Pop some straight vodka into your nifty spray bottle. Spray, leave for an hour, wipe off with warm water.
