MOLD (yech!) & a FABULOUS shower cleaner

This morning I rolled over to look at my daughter in bed (co-sleeper, guilty!) and I noticed green fuzzy dots on the windowsill behind the bed. Mold. Gross. Luckily, I had just clipped out a recipe for all-natural mold & mildew cleaner from the newspaper. I mixed it up and sprayed it on my windowsill and then for good measure I sprayed down the inside of my shower. Can't hurt, right? Turns out - this cleaner is the bomb! It cleaned my shower -no problem; better than many of the chemical-laden cleaners I've used in the past. Just spray it on, let it soak in, then use a sponge or cloth to wipe it off. I've found that a worn out shower poof works wonders while cleaning. If your shower is really dirty you can put some baking soda on your poof and scrub-a-dub-dub after letting the cleaner soak in. It will be sparkling in no time. Here is the recipe - the first of many in an all-natural cleaning arsenal. Try it on your shower today!

Fabulous All-Natural Mold & Mildew Cleaner

2 cups water

1 teaspoon all purpose soap (I used Dr. Bronners mild)

2 teaspoons tea tree oil

Mix it up in an empty spray bottle and keep it in your bathroom. Happy cleaning!


  1. Mold not only damages your home, it can also be detrimental to your health. It's a serious problem that most people don't deal with, or don't want to deal with. By not deal with your mold issues, you're destroying the investment in your home and also your family's well being.

  2. When I wanted to be pregnant and have my first baby, my husband had erectil dysfunction problem, so we decided to buy viagra and after that he turned very strong and could get powerful erection after this medical treatment. Thank to this i have two litles girls that I love too much. And I enjoy every time that I go shopping, I usually buy many clothes for them.

  3. This seems to be a great site which offers Professional Cleaning Company, Commercial Cleaning, High quality cleaning, Domestic Cleaning, House cleaning services, Cleaning Company, Brisbane Cleaning, Lawn Mowing Services, Cleaning Prices, Commercial Cleaning Prices, Domestic cleaning Prices etc. and i would surely like to try their service...i had been relying on earlier and they too offered good stuff.

  4. Great information! I use vinegar and lemon juice mixed with warm water to clean my showers and fight mold. It also works great as a deoderizer!

  5. Great article and it's very difficult to prove who is ultimately repsonsible for mold in a home, but if you do feel any of the symptoms above I recomend contacting a professional.
