1) Wipe Up Water
Mould and mildew thrive in moisture-rich environments, so safeguard potential danger spots by wiping the shower walls and kitchen sinks dry after use.
2) Let the Sunshine In
On a hot day, open the windows wide to let in as much air into your home as possible to get rid of the moisture. Likewise, use sunlight and fresh breeze to clean and deodorise things that cannot go into the wash, such as mattresses and books.
3) Dry the Air
Invest in a dehumidifier to lower humidity, which h will stop the growth of mould and mildew, and neutralise musty smells. Place dehumidifiers in dark, difficult-to-air places.
4) Keep Fabrics Dry
Air your mattresses at least once a month and make sure your clothes are completely dry before you hang them in your closet.
5) Raid the Kitchen
There are plenty of trusted remedies lurking on your pantry shelves. A couple of classic cleaners: baking soda and white vinegar as well as lemon juice and salt. For the former: Mix two tablespoons of baking soda and one cup of water. Pour into a spray bottle. In another spray bottle, add white vinegar. Spray the baking soda mixture liberally onto the affected area, followed by vinegar solution. Leave for a few minutes, then wipe and leave to dry. For the latter: Wipe off the loose mould and mildew.
