Mold comes in many forms, some of it toxic. This article addresses how to remove mold and mildew of the everyday, not toxic, variety.
This blend will often work:
1 cup distilled water
1 cup white vinegar
2 teaspoons tea tree essential oil (Melaleuca alternifolia)
Add all ingredients to a spray bottle.
Place the spray cap on the bottle.
Shake well, and spray on mold.
Let the blend remain on the surface, not rinsing. The smell is strong at first, but it'll dissipate.
Let's look at other options in case you have mold requiring more scrubbing power to remove.
Wear gloves, safety glasses, and a mask when cleaning up
mold to avoid both eye irritation from accidental splashback and to
avoid absorbing mold spores into your body.
Mold Removal Borax Blend
Here's a recipe with borax, which adds some scrubbing power:
1/2 cup borax
2 tablespoons vinegar
30 drops tea tree essential oil
A plastic container with a lid
Combine all the ingredients in the container until they have the consistency of a paste.
Apply a little of the mixture to the mold.
Scrub off the mixture.
Rinse the area with water.
Tip: For a more powerful effect, after you apply the mold-removal mixture, spray the area with hydrogen peroxide before scrubbing. Another option is to let the mixture remain on the mold for about an hour before scrubbing
