2 Mold Killers


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Tea Tree Treasure
Nothing natural works for mold & mildew as well as this spray. Iíve used it successfully on a moldy ceiling from a leaking roof, a musty bureau, a musty rug, & a moldy shower curtain. Tea tree oil is expensive, but a little goes a very long way. Note that the smell of tea tree oil is very strong, it will dissipate in a few days.
2 teaspoons tea tree oil
2 cups water
Combine in a spray bottle, shake to blend, & spray on problem areas. Do not rinse. Makes 2 cups.

Vinegar Spray
Straight vinegar reportedly kills 82 percent of mold. Pour some white distilled vinegar straight into a spray bottle, spray on the moldy area, and let set without rinsing if you can put up with the smell. It will dissipate in a few hours.
