If your washing machine smells weird, then we have a simple way to get that smell out of your bathroom.
The smell usually comes from a mold that has been gathering around the washing machine. This trick that we are going to show you is very simple and easy to make.
One out of the two ingredients is tea tree oil. This is a very important part of the mixture because, first, it cannot be found natural anywhere other than Australia. But, it has been used for centuries. It comes from the leaves of the melaleuca alternifolia, which grows in Australia. The Aborigines use the tea tree leaves as medicine for wounds, mixed with mud to hold the leaves together.
Since the beginning of the last century, around 1920’s, it was discovered that tea tree oil can be used as an antiseptic, because it had very strong features. A more recent discovery is that it can also be used against respiratory problems, and has antibiotic features differentiating from burns and rashes to dandruff etc.
But, like we said at the beginning, it can also be used when treating mold. Since mold is a fungus and tea tree oil has anti-fungal properties, your house will be mold-free in no time.
Here is a simple guideline to how to make this simple, but efficient home remedy for mold:
- Tea Tree Oil
Use 2 teaspoons of tea tree oil and mix them with two cups of water. You can pour the liquid into a spray bottle for easier use. Use the bottle to spray onto area where you can detect mold. Give it some time to rest like that, and then use the cloth to wipe away. This is really effective and easy, and you can immediately see the results.
