Do you have a tough time keeping your home free of mold and other filth?  Are you concerned about the types of chemicals you are using to clean those problem surfaces?  Here are three easy cleaning solutions you can use at home, with just a few ingredients.

Vinegar Spray

Pour white distilled vinegar in a spray bottle, and wet affected area thoroughly.  Let sit for one hour, wipe clean with a damp cloth.

Tea Tree Oil Spray

Combine 2 teaspoons tea tree oil with 2 cups of water in a spray bottle, and shake vigorously.  Spray over affected area.  Let sit for at least one hour, wiping up any excess spray with a damp cloth.

Baking Soda Solution

Add 1 teaspoon baking soda to 1 cup of water in a spray bottle, shake until dissolved.  Spray over affected area and scrub clean with a sponge or brush.

For tougher areas increase the set time for each solution as needed.  For best results, after the area has been wiped clean, spray again with any of the above solutions and let dry.  This will kill any remaining spores and discourage mold from returning.  There is no need to worry, as each of these solutions is safe, and completely kid and pet friendly!
