Was going through old journal entries of mine online and came across this in my memory section. These were from Body & Soul magazine but i got these from http://www.livejournal.com/community/naturalliving
Natural mold & mildew fighters
Tea Tree Oil Spray
Tea Tree Oil is a broad-spectrum fungicide and proves to be one of the best natural solutions for getting rid of mold and mildew.
2 teaspoons tea tree oil*
2 cups water (preferably distilled)
Combine ingredients in a spray bottle, shake to blend and spray on problem areas. Let dry, then wipe down the area. For carpets, add tea tree oil to the water in a steam cleaner (two teaspoons per every 1/2 gallon) or spot clean with the spray.
*Note that the smell of tea tree oil is very strong, but will dissipate in a few days.
Grapefruit Seed Extract Spray
Not as powerful as Tea Tree Oil, but it has the advantage of being odorless.
20 drops grapefruit-seed extract
2 cups water
Repeat steps listed above.
Peroxide Tile Whitener and Spray
Safer and less corrosive than bleach, hydrogen peroxide is a nontoxic, natural whitener.
1/2 cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide solution
1 cup water
Repeat steps listed above, but discard after use. Hydrogen peroxide loses its potency when exposed to air.
