Tea Tree Treasure Nothing natural works for mold & mildew as well as this spray. Iíve used it successfully on a moldy ceiling from a leaking roof, a musty bureau, a musty rug, & a moldy shower curtain. Tea tree oil is expensive, but a little goes a very long way. Note that the smell of tea tree oil is very strong, it will dissipate in a few days. 2 teaspoons tea tree oil 2 cups water Combine in a spray bottle, shake to blend, & spray on problem areas. Do not rinse. Makes 2 cups. (next page)
Vinegar Spray Straight vinegar reportedly kills 82 percent of mold. Pour some white distilled vinegar straight into a spray bottle, spray on the moldy area, and let set without rinsing if you can put up with the smell. It will dissipate in a few hours.
I tried every thing over the counter or Rx and nothing worked then I tried Tea Tree Oil from the health food store just wash my face then apply a few drops of oil to my face once a day and I have clearer skin then I have ever have. I know putting oil on sounds counter intuitive but it really worked!
Add 2 teaspoons tea-tree oil and 2 cups water to a spray bottle. Shake, then spritz along the toiletís inside rim. Let sit for 30 minutes; scrub. You can also place a few drops of your favorite oil on the inside of the toilet-paper tube. Every time the paper is used, the scent will be released. 432
