Hello Spring, Goodbye Mold

The end of rainy season is a great time to purge your house of the scourge of mold. The wetness, closed windows and general ennui of winter let mold spores thrive, so it’s not surprising if your home is smelling a little bit musty by this time of year.

Mold is gross, it’s a potent allergen, and it can also be dangerous. We’ve all heard of black mold and how invasive and indestructible it can be.

The goods news? It is actually possible for you to treat a threatening mold infestation in your own home before it takes over and turns into a horror movie. And it can be done organically.

The recipe:

Equal parts borax and baking soda mixed in warm water.

Borax sounds toxic, but don’t be fooled by the name. It’s actually a naturally occurring mineral—a sort of salt—found in the beds of dried up lakes. In certain other cultures, it’s actually used as a food additive to create texture (We don’t recommend binging on it however—stick to chocolate cake).

Of course, it’s always a good idea to wear gloves when using any cleaning product in order to avoid irritating the skin.

Tip:

For really tough mold that just doesn’t want to let go, you can substitute Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds for the warm water. Sal Suds is a great degreaser and one of our favorite products at Greenforce. It’s made with a base of surfactants and fir tree oils. Like all the products we use, it’s non-toxic, environmentally friendly and safe for humans.

If mold has been left a long time it can actually grow into grout or into the walls. This might require a Mold Remediation company and some demolition. An ounce of prevention……

  7. Having a rain barrel can help you collect enough of water during the rainy season. Learning how to make a rain barrel can help you reduce your water bills. For you to water your garden and the lawn, you need lots water which can be quite costly. Making a rain barrel is not expensive. That’s some of the best rain barrel information I’ve seen online. I tried to make a tutorial too, it might help.

  8. I like your website. Very practical and very inspirational. Thanks a bunch. This will help me a lot.

  9. Zep Cleaning says:

    Although Zep costs more you do not have to use as much as the cheaper cleaner availables. I used Zep products when I did commercial cleaning 20 years ago. Nothing cuts through the crud like this shower cleaner! All their products work great and are commercial strength. If you use less product, it becomes cheaper over all than using LOTS of a cheaper one that will not do the job!

    The Origins of Herbal Medicine For most of their existence human beings have had various but limited resources for treating injuries and diseases. For thousands of years, sickness was blamed on supernatural forces, and treatments included the use of magic, music, prayer and the incantations, as well as crude operations, physical therapy such as diet, fresh air and exercise, and internal and external remedies based on plants. in about 500 B.C.E. this supernatural view of disease was displaced by a belief in health as a balance of forces within the body, and disease as a disturbance of that balance. This view did not change the role of herbs in medicine, and plant remedies continued to be used therapeutically. They became an important means of treating illness, as they were seen as a way of restoring balance and harmony to the body. Throughout the world there developed many different healing systems based on this idea of balancing natural forces, and relying on the medicinal use of plants. These include the Indian system of Ayurveda, the ancient Chinese and the Native American systems, as well as the system of folk medicine which developed in Europe. Each country or culture developed its own tradition and pharmacy from locally growing plants. China and India have the oldest written traditions. dating from about 1000 B.C.E. Whereas the Indian and Chinese systems still survive today, in Europe the idea of balanced forces within the body gradually disappeared. From the 16th century onward, European cultures expanded into the New World, and imperialism made Western medicine the dominant ideal throughout the world, although not necessarily the dominant practice. Many indigenous systems have been deeply affected by this. Although some countries, such as China, tradition has always been honoured and traditional herbal and modern Western medicine are practiced side by side, in other countries “bush folk medicine was despised, ignored, or even outlawed as politically dangerous. Local healers and wise women many of whom held valuable information were vilified and persecuted. CHINA The oldest medical text in China is The Yellow Emperor’s Book of Internal Medicine, which is about 3,000 years old and still consulted today. Traditional Chinese medicine is based on the five elements of wood, water, fire, earth, and metal. These elements differ from the European medieval model in that these are not discrete like the four humors but linked energetically, constantly interacting and feeding, hindering, or flowing through one another. Each element is linked to one or more organs, an emotion, a taste, and a season. Specific herbs of the right taste will strengthen the element, For example, the element of earth is related to the stomach and spleen, the emotion is worry, the season is summer and the taste sweet. A tonic for this element would he the sweet root of liquorice, warming and nourishing. READ MORE HERE

  58. Very entertaining conversation…but I’ll only respond to the issue at hand. I know oil of oregano is a fungal fighter but I’ve never used or heard of it used for candida. But I will do my own research as I’m curious now.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    Don’t cry if this is off-topic. But I wanted let everyone know about something. It’s not a comfortable issue I understand. But some men are just too fast on the trigger. What I mean is… PE or premature ejaculation. For some guys it’s awful (it’s not any joy for their wives either!) Until now, these dudes have just had to suffer it. But now there is a medication approved to treat PE. It’s called Priligy (Dapoxetine). Priligy is approved in Europe already and although it is still not approved in the US, Americans can purchase it from international pharmacies. Go to http://buypriligy.biz for details. Thanks.
