Killing mold with Borax - recipes

Try a spray bottle with the following in it:

1/2 gal. white vinegar 1/2 gal. hydrogen peroxide-common peroxide available from your

drugstore 1 cup boric acid keep closed tightly mix well - use in a spray bottle on a dry surface.

Shake well and spray area well. The vinegar/peroxide kills active

live mold spores and the boric acid keeps them that way. (Note:

uncapped peroxide loses it's oxygen molecules to the air when not

capped tight and becomes H2O [water], so keep this solution in a

bottle that can be capped off tight).

Boric acid works on mold bodies like it does on roach bodies - cuts

them and they bleed to death because they cannot "coagulate".

One last note on the above solution. This solution will not "bleach"

out the mold stain. After mold is under control, then you can bring

out the bleach and whiten the mold stains.

=== The most powerful method of cleaning mold and mildew with borax is

to mix half a cup of white vinegar with half a cup of borax. The

mixture should be further diluted with 1/4 of a cup of warm water.

The warm water loosens the mold, while the vinegar dissolves it and

the borax kills it.
