If you are trying to cleanse your house of mold, you probably are looking for the right cleaning substance. One option you may not have considered is borax. Like all mold-cleaning options, borax provides advantages and disadvantages. It is inexpensive and very effective, but it requires a bit more work than certain alternatives. Follow these steps for mold removal:
- Mix 1 cup of borax to a gallon of water.
- Use the solution and a scrub brush to clean off the mold.
- Wipe up any remaining moisture or mold particles.
One advantage of this option is that you do not need to rinse off the solution, and it will prevent mold from growing there in the future. Keep in mind that borax is only dangerous if consumed, so you do not need to worry about it making contact with skin (unless you have any cuts).
