Mould Invading Your Kitchen? Evict It Now!

Any damp space in your home is prone to house mould and fungus. The excess moisture left behind in your kitchen becomes a breeding ground for them.

Thus, it’s important to maintain cleanliness and hygiene in the kitchen, especially around the corners of walls and the sink.

It’s not as time-consuming as it seems. Let’s understand two simple techniques to keep your kitchen mould-free.

Make sure you clean bleach off thoroughly to avoid contamination of your food.

1) Use Vinegar to Attack the Fungus

Mix 4 cups of vinegar, ¼ cup salt and 2 tsp. liquid dish soap in a container. Pour this mixture in a sprayer and apply over the mould and fungus. Make sure you cover the entire stained surface and let it rest for 10-15 minutes. Scrub the area thoroughly and wipe it with a dry rag. You may still find some fungus around the area. Don’t worry! Simply spray the solution over the affected areas again, wait for 15 minutes and wipe it clean.

2) Use Bleach to Get Rid of Moulds

Mix ½ cup bleach and 2 cups of warm water in a bowl. Pour this mixture in an empty spray bottle and spray it over the affected areas. Scrub it thoroughly and wipe clean. If you don’t see instant results, spray the solution again and let it sit for 15 minutes before scrubbing. Wipe it clean and you’ll notice most of the mould has disappeared.

Try these tips out to ensure you have a mould-free home in no time.
