  • Never use cardboard boxes for storage, causes mold build up.

  • Damp laundry pilling up, wash and dry asap.

  • Never ever use bleach to clean mold, make sure and use gloves, long sleeve shirt, a proper mask for protection (don't want to breath that stuff in).

  • Use only mild dish soap and make sure and dry area really dry, heat kills mold, use a small heater at the area.

  • When using old rags to dry the area make sure and throw them away.

  • When there is sunshine, open windows for your home to breath.

  • Never use sheets or blankets for curtains.

A home is like a human, needs to be cleaned, dry and sunshine most of the time and let the warm air come in, declutter your garbage, and use totes or safe plastic for storage.

I have always used bleach to get rid of mold - even in tupperware that gets lost in my son's lunchbox for over a month. I feel like it is the best way to take care of this...could you please elaborate on why you do not ever use bleach to get rid of mold?
