Today, we’d like to offer some general ways to clean your home in Seattle. We say this because we know that having natural products to clean your home with is important – safer and less expensive than other toxic home cleansers. What’s also great is that you don’t have to waste time, gas, or money on these products because you most likely have them in your kitchen!

Since it rains about 200 days a year in Seattle – with many more days of high humidity and lack of sun, many Seattle homes and apartments have problems with mold and mildew. Many home basements and storage spaces like garages have that musty odor as well.

However, there are natural ways to clean, sanitize, and rid your home of mild mold, mildew and that musty smell common in areas like Seattle.

Home Cleaning Problem:

  • Mold, Mildew, and Musty Smell
  • Natural Solution:
  • Vinegar and Tea Tree Oil

What you need to clean:

  • Vinegar
  • Tea Tree Oil
  • Water
  • Spray Bottle

Poor water in a spray bottle. Put in 5% distilled and filtered natural vinegar and mix. Do not use Mother’s Organic Unfiltered Vinegar.

Spray on counters, toilet seats, cutting board and let it sit overnight – don’t wipe. The vinegar smell will go away and dissipate in a couple of hours.

For mold and mildew, get your spray bottle. Put in about 2.5 cups of water in the bottle and 2 teaspoons of tea tree oil and spray.  Let it sit without wiping. If you don’t have Tea Tree oil, then you can also use vinegar as it works for a lot of different types of mold and mildews.
