Mold Remover 

Nothing removes mold or mildew like bleach. But, if you are sensitive to bleach or don't want anyone breathing the fumes, you can get decent results using one of the recipes below (from EarthEasy.com and Natural Healthy Home Cleaning Tips) and a little old-fashioned elbow grease.

Hydrogen Peroxide Mixture

  • 1/2 cup hydrogen peroxide (3%)
  • 1 cup water


Tea Tree Oil Mixture

  • 1 tsp. Tea Tree Oil
  • 1 cup water

Chose one of the recipes above. Mix the two ingredients in a spray bottle. Spray the mold and mildew and let it sit for an hour. Rinse and wipe clean. You may need to scrub tough mold or mildew with a sponge or scrub brush.
