This post shows you how to get rid of mold with only two simple ingredients. The mixture obtained by mixing these two ingredients is used to destroy the mold in your home and the disgusting smell in the washing machine. Unbelievably, the basic ingredient is – tea tree oil.
This essential oil has been used for hundreds of years by the Aboriginal tribes. It is extracted from the plant Melaleuca Alternifolia, which is native to Australia. Like many Australian-native plants, this tree cannot be found anywhere else in the world. The old Aboriginal technique includes crushing the leaves and placing them on a burn, with mud used as a fixator to keep them in place.
The tea tree was discovered in the 1920s by Australian researchers. They found that the oil from this tree is a potent antiseptic, much more powerful than the most commonly used antiseptic at the time, the carbolic acid.
Recent studies have shown that tea tree oil is very efficient in relieving various respiratory problems, from mild ones like a runny nose, cough, and sore throat, to more serious conditions like asthma, bronchitis, andeven tuberculosis.
Tea tree oil also has antibiotic properties that are vital for treating all kinds of skin infections, including allergy rashes, burns, and dandruff.
And finally, this essential oil can be used as a disinfectant. It fights many different types of germs and molds. The best part is that the homemade anti-mold mixture can be made quickly and easily.
