Detox 45 My final words about mould and mildew

Since the bathroom is necessarily a warm, moist room that is susceptible to the growth of mould, we always use our exhaust fan when showering.  A daily wipe-over of all wet areas is an easy task when done routinely, as it reduces the amount of soap build up as well as lessening the likelihood of mould.

To clean mould from walls and ceilings without the use of expensive chemical bleaches and harsh cleaning agents you will need:
Four containers, clean sponges, bicarb soda, vinegar and hot water.
Container one holds a mixture of bicarb soda in hot water.
Container two holds a mixture of vinegar in hot water.
Containers three and four hold hot water only, and are used to rinse the sponges between use, remembering to rinse the bicarb soda and vinegar sponges in different rinsing buckets.
First use the bicarb soda solution, then the vinegar.
If mould is particularly difficult to remove, bicarb soda or borax can be used dry, as an abrasive.  Alternatively, mix bicarb soda with vinegar, let it fizz, then use to rub clean the 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.
