Detox 37 How to minimise mould and mildew

1. Increase ventilation by using an extractor fan in your bathroom and kitchen, and by opening up windows and doors to allow good through airflow.
2. Fix leaking pipes.
3. Always dry shoes, bags and coats before putting them away in cupboards.
4. Store linen and clothing in airy cupboards.  Leaving damp leather articles and clothing in warm cupboards encourages the growth of mould and mildew.
5. Choose the sunniest room for young children to sleep in, with good through ventilation.
6. Dry your bath towels, bath mat and face washers daily — out in the sun.  Damp towels can develop a musky smell due to mould.

About chemicalfreehome

My interest in chemical free living began in 1983 when I was accidentally soused in pesticide from an aircraft. I became seriously ill with life-threatening weight loss and severe pain; however, over a period of years I regained my health and gradually evolved a new lifestyle regarding the use of chemicals in our home. When I realised that other people were concerned about the effects of chemicals on health I decided to turn a negative into a positive and so wrote my best-selling book 'Chemical Free Home' published by Black Inc in Melbourne. I have been amazed by the response of all age groups, as everyone is affected by chemicals to some degree, and everyone benefits by reducing their use. In this blog I hope to suggest ways in which you too can create a healthier home environment.
