Mold in your home is probably one of the worst things for your health. Mold is actually a fungus that grows in multicellular fragments which can significantly harm your health. Mold can grow on wet walls and get in the air and in your lungs, passing the blood-brain barrier and causing significant damage to your system. This is why it’s important to remove it from your walls as soon as you notice it.
However, removing mold from your home is not an easy task. The anti-mold products you can find in stores are pretty expensive and ineffective. Luckily, there is something that can help – a DIY natural spray which is highly effective against any type of mold without harming your health.
Have you heard of tea tree oil? This amazing oil has been used by the Aborigines for centuries as a natural way of treating minor cuts and wounds. The Aborigines crushed tea tree leaves and applied them directly on the wound, while securing it with a mud pack. Historians say that the oil was discovered at the beginning of the 20th century. The oil has been thoroughly researched in the past, and scientists have been able to conclude that it’s a powerful antiseptic agent. Furthermore, they have been able to discover that it’s 100 times more potent than carbolic acid, the most powerful medicinal antiseptic.
Recent studies have shown that tea tree oil is very effective against a host of respiratory problems including asthma and tuberculosis. Furthermore, the oil is highly effective against burns and minor cuts and wounds. You can use tea tree oil to prepare a mixture that will remove the mold from your walls and prevent a variety of health problems. Here’s how:
- 2 teaspoons of tea tree oil
- 2 cups of water
The preparation is simple – just pour both ingredients in a spray bottle and shake well, then spray the mixture on the mold in your home and leave it to dry off. Wipe with a towel in the end and repeat the process every day to get rid of the mold in your home and protect your health.
