- Combine ingredients in a spray bottle.
- Spray onto mold and mildew affected porous surfaces (sheetrock, wood, clothes, upholstered furniture, fabric).
- Use daily until all mold and mildew dies. This can also be useful in preventing mold and mildew from returning.
It's also a good idea to take a look at the mold/mildew affected environment and adjust lifestyle habits. Damp and warm environments are happy growing spaces for mold and mildew. Crack open a window or door to improve air circulation and help things dry quickly. Investigate suspected leaks and repair them quickly. Towel dry or squeegee your shower walls. Spread open wide the shower curtain so it can air dry quickly instead of leaving it bunched up. Make sure laundry is completely dry before putting it away.
