How To Make Eco-Friendly Bleach-Free Mold Killer

Ugh, molds! Black, ugly, and spotty molds are positively nauseating, pose health threats, and multiply so fast if left uncontrolled.

Molds form anywhere in your home when there is moisture:

  • Flooded areas
  • Leaky roofs
  • Plumbing issues
  • Damp areas like basements, laundry room, and bathrooms
  • Steam from home-installed sauna, bathroom, and kitchen
  • Improper insulation and ventilation
  • Humidifiers
  • Wet clothes hamper and indoor cloths-lines

Kill molds and zap ‘em fast with these homemade eco-friendly recipes:
Mold in your shower curtain:

  • Take two tablespoons of tea tree oil and mix this with a couple of cups of water.
  • Pour contents into a clean, never-been used spray bottle and spritz on your shower curtain.
  • Leave it clinging to your shower curtain for at least two hours.

The great thing about this concoction is that there is no need for rinsing at all!

  • Mold on the rubber seal of the refrigerator door and front load washer. In a clean, never-been-used spray bottle, combine organic vinegar and water. Shake thoroughly and spray contents on the rubber seal of your fridge or washer.
  • Leave it on for 10 minutes.
  • Put on a pair of gloves and proceed to wipe the dissolved residue with a clean cloth.
  • Lubricate every six months with petroleum jelly.

Mold on window moldings:

  • Get your scrub, a box of baking soda, a clean, unused spray bottle, a pair of unsullied gloves, and a bottle of organic white vinegar.
  • Put on your gloves and begin to spread baking soda on the mold-affected area.
  • Pour organic vinegar into the spray bottle, then, spray the contents directly on the baking soda. This will cause a foaming reaction and will result to hissing sounds as the vinegar reacts with the baking soda. Do not worry. This is naturally expected as a combination of these ingredients.
  • Let it sit for 10-15 minutes.
  • After the recommended time has elapsed and with your gloves still on, take the scrub then begin gently scrubbing the mold-infected area.
  • Rinse after and let the area dry naturally.
  • Repeat when desired.

Warning: Never store mixed baking soda and vinegar in a container for a long period of time. Your container will either overflow or explode when kept or stored.

Mold on the showerhead, stall, and bathroom tiles:

  • You will need pure grapefruit seed extract, which can be bought from any health store in your area.
  • In a clean, unused spray bottle, combine 30 drops of pure grapefruit seed extract and purified water. Shake well.
  • Begin spraying on mold-affected areas of the showerhead, stall, and bathroom tiles. Let it soak for without rinsing.
  • Repeat the procedure a second time.

Note: To prevent the proliferation of mold in your bathroom fixtures, you can spray this mixture every time you’re done showering.
