    Hello Westpointmom85 --- It doesn't matter which brand of tea tree oil you use as long as it is pure 100% tea tree oil. Use 1-to-1 solution of 1 cup white vinegar to 1 teaspoon of tea tree oil, shake well and spray heavily onto the moldy area. Let it sit 30 minutes then use a scrub brush / toothbrush. Use more of the solution to spray it down and wipe it off well using a microfiber cloth. Throw the dirty cloth away (you don't want to try washing it and reusing and just spread mold around everywhere else). Use a clean cloth to wipe the now clean surface down once more with your anti-mold solution and let it dry to help prevent any future molding from occurring. Good Luck and thank you for using HOMETALK for answers.

    HOW TO GET RID OF MOLD NATURALLY (WITHOUT BLEACH!)

    After reading up on some different natural remedies for killing mold, I came up with a simple 3-step system to remove black mold naturally. You just need four ingredients (and a couple glass spray bottles):

    • Vinegar + Tea Tree Oil: I start by combining distilled vinegar, a naturally antimicrobial substance, and tea tree oil in a spray bottle. Give it a little shake and spray the mixture directly on the moldy area. Let it sit (don’t touch the mold or try to scrub it away) for 30 minutes. The vinegar will kill the mold with its acid, while tea tree oil is naturally anti-fungal and one of the best natural mold killers.
    • Baking Soda: Then I take some baking soda and add it to slightly warm water in a spray bottle. Shake the mixture well until the baking soda has dissolved. And then spray this mixture on top of the moldy area. Let it dry on the mold–so don’t touch it for at least half an hour. In addition to killing mold, baking soda will absorb moisture to help keep mold away.
    • Hydrogen Peroxide: Finally, take some hydrogen peroxide, an anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-bacterial solution, and pour it into a glass. Dip a clean toothbrush into the peroxide and scrub the moldy area with the toothbrush, rinsing and dipping the toothbrush as you go.
