The appearance of mold is unpleasant, as are the harmful effects it has on our health. Children and babies shouldn’t sit in a moldy room because it can cause severe allergies and asthma.
Here are two simple and inexpensive ways to get rid of mold: vinegar and baking soda.
When preparing the vinegar solution for mold removal, you should also add water.
According to experts, spraying the wall with a vinegar-water solution (2 parts water, 1 part vinegar) works best. Allow the solution to act for several hours and wipe off the mold using a damp cloth (wear a mask over your nose and mouth).
If you don’t like the smell of vinegar, you can add a few drops of essential oil. Several studies have shown that vinegar destroys 82% of mold spores and all bacteria and viruses. If you spray vinegar on the mold and let it dry, you can prevent mold recurrence.
⚪ Baking soda
Baking soda is another helpful ingredient for removing mold.
You can dilute it in water or mix it with vinegar and water.
Spray the area, let it sit for a few hours, and wipe with a damp cloth. Because baking soda is a natural and very soft disinfectant, there is no odor left behind.
