Cleaning Tips

For those of you who, like me, are fighting extreme mold, here are a few housecleaning tips I've picked up from other folks who have more experience with humid climates than I.

First, if you want to re-wear a piece of clothing, do not just hang it in the closet, as it will mold everywhere it touched your body. Spray it with Febreeze, let it dry, and then hang it up. Something about the formula of Febreeze will prevent the mold from taking hold.

To prevent mildew and mold on non-porous, non-fabric household surfaces that cannot be bleached, clean with a 1:1 mixture of vinegar and water. Make sure to test this first in a small, out of the way section of the surface, as the vinegar may damage it, but for the most part, this has proven to be a safe and effective way to neutralize mold and mildew.
