Soap and Water
Tea Tree Oil – an anti-fungal and antibacterial that has been used for centuries. It is potent a little goes a long way. To make a strong anti-mold spray needs only 1 teaspoon tea tree oil to 2 cups of water. Look for “100% pure essential oil” rather than fragrant, aromatherapy or perfume oil, which may mean synthetic. The bottle should be glass of a dark color to lengthen shelf life.
Soap and Water – reduces surface tension of water and creates a thin film around dirt molecules, bacteria, and even viruses. Look for vegetable based, non-petroleum, fragrance, and detergent free soaps. Use warm water for fighting germs. Soap and water can effectively clean everything from your body and tabletops to carpet and fabric stains.
Lavender Oil – If you don’t like the smell of the tea tree oil, you may want to use lavender. Lavender scented cleansing products give you the added benefit of calming and mood-lifting aromatherapy. A few drops in the vaporizer to fight colds and infections. You can dilute with water and make an antibacterial spray.
Vinegar – Although not an EPA registered pesticide, studies show that distilled white vinegar kills 99% of bacteria, 82% of mold, and 80% of germs. Keep a spray bottle of straight vinegar handy to clean up any problem area quickly and easily.
