It has been proven to promote asthma, allergies and colds while also increasing the occurrence of mood swings and depression.If you have mold and mildew in your home then forget using the store bought items that are packed full of chemicals, and instead try these four natural fixes – including:
A Tea Tree Oil Spray
Hydrogen Peroxide Spray

Start with the Basics: Here are a few things you must do to start treating the mold problem:1. Dry out dampness. Moisture is the number one cause of mold. Drying out damp areas of the home will help to prevent the rate of incidence. One can also sprinkle cornstarch over the moldy area, as this will help to absorb the extra moisture.2. Fix the leak. Fixing those leaky pipes, or that leak in the roof, will help to eliminate the water source and prevent the conditions for which mold loves to grow.3. Establish good air circulation. The best way to do this is to use fans throughout the home.4. Let the sun shine in. Let the natural light of the sun into your home as much as possible. However, in areas such as the basement, consider using a UV light if things get really bad. They’ve been known to kill nearly 100% of the mold present.To remove mold and mildew try these three homemade cleaning recipes: Tea Tree Oil: This is the best working natural mold and mildew remover spray. Tea tree oil is expensive, but a little goes a long way. It can be used on anything that needs mold and mildew removal.Note that the smell of tea tree oil is very strong but will disappear in a day or so, and is non-toxic.

Combine 2 teaspoons of tea tree oil with 2 cups of water.
Mix in a spray bottle, shake and spray onto any problem areas.
Do not rinse.

Vinegar: Straight vinegar reportedly kills 82% of mold. Pour some white distilled vinegar into a spray bottle. Spray the moldy area and let sit. The smell of vinegar will disappear in a few hours.

 Hydrogen Peroxide Spray: Mix 1 part 3% hydrogen peroxide and 2 parts water. Spray directly on to mold and allow it to dry. Note: Be sure only to make as large a batch as you will need for one application at a time.
