If you’re experiencing problems with mold in your house and you simply don’t know how to get rid of it, we’ve got the perfect solution for you. You only need 1 ingredient and a spray bottle and your mold problems will be gone.
The main ingredient in this homemade remedy is tea tree oil and it’s extremely beneficial against mold. This essential oil has been used by the Aborigines for centuries, for wounds, burns and cuts. They would crush the leaves and apply them on the affected spot, covering it with a mud pack to hold it steady.
This oil is extracted from the leaves of the Melaleuca Alternifoli, a plant native to Australia. Historians say that the amazing properties of tea tree oil were discovered back in the 1920s by the Australian researchers.
They discovered that it has 100 times more powerful antiseptic properties than carbolic acid (a germicide used in those days). Recent studies suggest that it can help with respiratory problems of every type, from common sore throats and runny nose to asthma, tuberculosis, and bronchitis. It can help with skin problems, like rashes, burns and dandruff thanks to its strong antibiotic properties.
However, its health benefits are not the main topic of this article so we’ll go on and show you how you can use tea tree oil to remove that nasty mold in your house. It’s effective against every type of mold and germs, and it’s very simple to use.
Here’s what you need to do:
- 2 tsp. of Tea Tree Oil
- 2 cups of water
- A spray bottle
Mix the tea tree oil and the water and pour the mixture into the spray bottle. Spray the mixture on the moldy areas. Leave it to dry off and wipe it off with a towel. You’ll notice amazing results.
