Mold is unpleasant, both by appearance and by the harmful effects it has on our health. Babies and children should not sit in a room that is affected by mold, because it can cause severe allergies and even asthma. Here are two simple and inexpensive ways to get rid of mold: vinegar and baking soda.
To prepare a vinegar solution to remove mold, you should use water too. Experts believe that the solution works best if the affected wall is sprinkled with vinegar and water solution; leave the solution to work a few hours and then clean the mold with a brush (in which case you must cover your nose and mouth with a special mask) or with a damp cloth.
If you don’t stand vinegar smell, add a few drops of essential oil. Studies show that vinegar destroys 82% of mold spores, and all viruses and bacteria. Vinegar prevents mold recurrence if sprayed onto problem area and left to dry.
Baking soda is another handy ingredient which is useful in removing mildew. You can use it water diluted or in vinegar water; spray it on problem-area, leave it a few hours and then wipe with a damp cloth. Baking soda is a natural disinfectant that doesn’t leave any smell.
