DIY Mold & Mildew Removal Spray

This Mold and Mildew cleaning spray is super easy to make, and is not the conventional recipe you’re probably seen that uses stinky vinegar! This is a bonus for those of us who can’t stand that smell (or have a spouse that gags whenever he even sees the bottle!). It uses hydrogen peroxide, which will foam to help remove and kill the mildew, without stinking up your bathroom in the process. The combination alongside our favorite essential oils makes this a potent spray that is natural and safe to use.


2 ounces water
2 ounces hydrogen peroxide
10 drops lemon essential oil
10 drops pure clove essential oil
10 drops melaleuca essential oil
