How To Get Rid Of Mold Naturally (Quick Tip!)
I furiously went through my brain to try and remember how to get rid of mold. It all started when the smell hit me as soon as I opened the door. I was stunned. Then I noticed it, the tiny little stain in the corner. Attempting to creep up the wall. The cupboard under the staircase in my home has a window, which is prone to condensation and it’s where we store coats and boots. Hence, the smell.
To tackle the mold, I ended up getting the tip from my Aunt, who has almost memorised every Good Housekeeping tip she has ever read.
How To Get Rid Of Mold Naturally
You Will Need:
- White Vinegar
- Spray Bottle
Use white distilled vinegar (I keep a 5L bottle of it handy for all cleaning recipes) and pour into a spray bottle. You then spray the vinegar directly onto the moldy surface and leave it for one hour.
All you have to do now is wipe it clean with water. Make sure that it’s really clean and fully rinsed with water and that the surface is able to dry completely. You can use a space heater for a limited time or use a dehumidifier.
Please note; It will smell vinegary for a little while, but not long.
How To Get Rid Of Black Mold & Stinky Smells
The best ways to prevent mold and stinky smells, is by:
- using charcoal air purifying bags
- vacuuming regularly
- cleaning regularly
- ensuring nothing in the area is damp (like a coat or boots)
Northern Ireland can be wet and miserable, so I’m often stuck under a heated blanket or wearing rechargeable heated socks. In the cupboard under the stairs, using a boot dryer is a great way to thoroughly dry out boots and ensure the air isn’t damp in there! You can find them in CozyWinters. They have absolutely everything you could need for your family to stay warm during winter!
The important thing is to ensure your rooms get a good airing every few months and check for mold regularly.
