This tea tree oil spray has antifungal properties that rival many of the commercial mold and mildew removers found in the supermarket.

  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 25 drops tea tree oil (Melaleuca alternifolia)
  1. Combine the vinegar and oil in a spray bottle.
  2. To use, spray on mold and let sit for 10 minutes. Wipe away with a damp sponge.
