Removing mold out of a small surface is easy but removing mold out a large area can be very difficult. Mold is very dangerous for our health that’s why we have to get rid of it immediately.
Method 1: Baking soda and Bleach
Use warm soapy water and baking soda to remove mildew. Baking soda is a great cleaning agent. Try this simple cleaning recipe to make your own bathroom cleaning product.
– A teaspoon of liquid soap
– A cup of baking soda
– A few drops of essential oil (citrus, rosemary, lavender, peppermint, eucalyptus, etc.)
– Water, to form a paste
Mix these ingredients. Pour in a spray bottle equal part of bleach and water. Add the mixture in the bottle and shake. Spray the area and leave it to dry. Spray once again and rub the surface with a brush. Rinse with water. Use gloves and a mask.
Method 2: Vinegar
Pour some undiluted white vinegar in a spray bottle. Vinegar has mild acidity that penetrates the surface turning it into a hostile environment for mold. Don’t dilute vinegar when you pour it into the spray bottle because you’ll lose its properties.
Spray the vinegar on moldy surfaces and wait an hour. Meanwhile leave the window open to ventilate the room.
After an hour, remove with warm water and dry the surface using a towel. After you have removed the solution, you shouldn’t feel the vinegar smell any longer.
Use vinegar to prevent mold outbreak before it can occur. Vinegar is reported to kill 82% of mold types.
Simply spray a little vinegar on an area prone to mildew and let it take effect. If you do this regularly, mold wouldn’t occur anymore.
Method 3: Ammonia
Make sure you never mix ammonia with bleach. Ammonia mixed with bleach creates gases that can be extremely dangerous. Avoid doing such combination when you’re cleaning.
Make sure you only use pure ammonia. Pour ammonia in a spray bottle and sprinkle on the mold area.
Rub the surface well with a brush to remove mold completely. Wait an hour or two. Let the air ventilate the room because the ammonia smell is very strong and unpleasant. Wipe the surface after a few hours.
Method 4: Hydrogen peroxide
Pour 3% hydrogen peroxide in a dark glass spray. If you like, add some vinegar in the hydrogen peroxide solution to boost the effectiveness.
Spray the solution on the entire moldy surface and leave it to act for 10-20 minutes while peroxide attacks mildew. Wipe the area until it becomes clean.
