If any natural cleaning agent can remove mold, that would have to be Tea Tree essential oil. Tea Tree is a powerful antifungal.
It also promotes health and immunity. So when you’re cleaning, you don’t have to worry about toxic chemicals. You’re actually getting healthier along with your home!
We use this Tea Tree mold remover in our bathroom every week. It’s also good at preventing mold from ever setting in (which I’d rather do than try to remove it). We don’t even need gloves to use it!
Bye Bye Bathroom Mold
- ½ cup borax (a natural mineral salt)
- ½ cup vinegar
30 drops Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia)
Combine all your ingredients in a plastic container with a lid. (You can even use your hands to mix it up!) The consistency should be paste-like. Just apply a bit to the mold, then scrub it off and rinse with water.
For extra cleaning, you can spray the area with hydrogen peroxide after you apply the mixture, or let the mixture sit on the mold for about an hour before scrubbing it off.
If any natural method will work against mold, this is the one! It may not solve all your mold problems, but it’s worth a shot. You can also try a variation on this recipe with different essential oils, which you’ll find here.
