Kill-Black-Mold With Some Simple Recipes

 

2 tsp. tea tree oil
2 cups water

Mix in a spray bottle and apply directly.
Do not rinse.
Let sit for 3 hours and gently wipe with a damp sponge.

In case you have an allergy to the oil, open a window or door
and turn on a fan.

This oil goes a long way. Always use equal measures of teaspoons and cups. For example, 3 tsp. to 3 cups water; 4 tsp. to 4 cups water and so on.

Known as a potent fungicide for all types of mold, it has a strong smell, but the odor dissipates in a few hours.


Put straight white vinegar in a spray bottle and
spray full force directly. Saturate the growth, and
let stand for a few hours. Gently wipe, and repeat.

Vinegar is all natural and inexpensive too!
