Mold is a type of fungus that grows on almost any damp surface. It’s not unusual to find mold in bathrooms, kitchens, and basements, and throughout any property where condensation is a problem. Mold can be black, white, green, purple, or orange, and vary from small, penny-sized spots to taking up whole walls. Left unattended, mold will continue to spread as long as there’s water and food to sustain it.
A special area where this uninvited guest occurs is the inside of your washing machine. If you want to clean your washer from inside-out and kill the mold, try the following 100% natural product:
◾ ¼ cup of lemon juice
◾ 1/2 gallon of water
◾ 1 cup of hydrogen peroxide
◾ spray bottle
Preparation and usage:
✔ Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and pour the resulting solution in a spray bottle.
✔ Shake well.
✔ Put on your gloves and a mask to avoid inhaling mold spores and the unpleasant smell.
✔ Spray the solution all over the areas attacked by mold, even if it’s just a small spot.
✔ Let the solution act for a few minutes, then wipe with a damp cloth.
✔ Pour a generous amount of solution in the detergent compartment of the washing machine.
✔ Start a normal washing cycle that uses warm water – your washing machine will now be properly cleaned and mold eradicated.
