Mold and Mildew Remover

I have noticed several requests for getting rid of mold. My mother found some things in a book that may help.

Spot Mold And Mildew Remover

Ad

  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. borax
  • 4 cups hot water
  • 1 clean 32 oz. spray bottle

This is a powerful but benign smelling disinfectant to get rid of small patches of mildew that breed in bathroom medicine cabinets, windowsills, and other surfaces around the home.

Combine the ingredients in the spray bottle and shake well

Spray on surfaces where mold or mildew is forming. Wipe off mildew but leave cleaning solution residue to keep mildew from forming.

Paint and Tile Mold and Mildew Remover

  • 1/4 cup bleach
  • 1 Tbsp. borax
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 clean 16 ounce spray bottle

This formula will take off mold and mildew from painted and tiled surfaces. Make sure the room is well ventilated.

Combine the ingredients in the spray bottle and shake well

Spray surface and wipe clean with a clean cloth. Rinse with clean water and dry with clean cloths.

Mold Remover for Leather and Luggage

  • 1/2 cup rubbing alcohol
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 clean 8 ounce spray bottle

Combine the ingredients in the spray bottle and shake well.

Spray affected area. Let stand for 10 to 20 minutes then wipe off mold with a clean rag and allow them to thoroughly dry.

Hope this helps.
