Where to Look for Toxic Mold:

All rooms of the house can be hiding places for toxic mold and should be thoroughly checked. Toxic mold often emits a musty type smell, which can lead you to where it might be hiding. Special attention should be paid to areas near water sources including bathrooms, pipes, sinks, showers, coffee makers, basements, washing machines, and utility rooms. Other common areas include under carpeting, in attics, cracked walls, and beneath wallpaper, drywall, and ceiling tiles. Any area that has water stains or a history of water damage should also be checked. Not all molds are visible and there are even certain types of molds that are white in color. If you are unable to locate the source of mold but still believe you may have it, you can purchase a quick home mold test from Menards or hire a professional mold inspector. An air purifier will be necessary to remove the mold spores from the air.

Instructions to Kill Toxic Mold:

1 Cup Vinegar

2 Cups Borax

1 Cup Water

This recipe will form a paste. Be sure to lightly dab the paste over the mold so that you do not spread the mold spores in the air. Allow the paste to dry, and then gently remove the paste and vacuum up the debris.

**Always Consult a Physician prior to beginning and new supplements or removing any medications.
