THE National Geographic today posted a note on how to get rid of mold and mildew — besides that all-purpose germ killer, bleach.
Sure, it kills mold and mildew — but also everything else it touches!
So, what are some of these alternatives?
According to NG, there’s vinegar and hydrogen peroxide, but what we personally recommend is tea tree oil.
Experts say that there is no better natural killer of mold than tea tree oil.
Tea tree oil is expensive, but if you have seriously infested spots, it may be a worthwhile investment. Mix 2 tsp. of tea tree oil with 2 cups of water in a spray bottle. Spray on problem areas, but do not rinse off. Tea tree oil has a very strong smell, which will dissipate in a few days.
At AOM, we offer a super-charged, all natural and organic tea tree product, Gelair, to eradicate your mold problems.
