Effective mold control agents are available at the pharmacy or supermarket

The easiest way to get rid of fungus and mold at home is to prevent it from developing in the first place. To do this, you need to make sure that the air in the room does not become too humid. Thus, you should ventilate the room regularly. But what to do if you still have nasty black spots on the walls, ceiling, or in the corners?

The Kobieta magazine assures us that inexpensive and environmentally friendly remedies that you can prepare yourself will be enough to combat mold at home. They effectively destroy fungi, the spores of which can have a very negative impact on health.

Tea tree oil

This aromatic oil, which can be freely purchased at any pharmacy, effectively fights fungus that can penetrate deep into the walls, destroying their structure. So, buy a bottle of this product as soon as you notice mold spots in your home.

To prepare an antifungal cleaning agent, mix two tablespoons of tea tree oil with two glasses of warm water and shake thoroughly to obtain the most homogeneous emulsion possible. After that, pour the mixture into a spray bottle and spray it on all surfaces where harmful traces have appeared. Leave the product on for 45-60 minutes, then spray it and wipe the wall or ceiling with the rough side of the sponge.

Important. Sponges used for cleaning fungi and mold should be thrown away immediately. They are no longer suitable for reuse as this can lead to the transfer of fungal spores.

Baking soda

Baking soda is a very effective tool for keeping your home clean. Among its other useful properties is the ability to fight mold. To do this, make a paste of baking soda and water. Put on protective gloves and rub this paste into the spots with the fungus. After two hours, gently remove the remnants with a brush and ventilate the apartment. In addition to fighting the fungus itself, baking soda also helps to get rid of the unpleasant odor that arises from it.
