Fighting Microbes with Microbes | The Scientist Magazine®

Like humans, with their complement of microbes that aid in everything from immune responses to nutrition, plants rely on a vast array of bacteria and fungi for health and defense. Over the last decade, research has revealed many new functional aspects of the crosstalk between human-associated microbes and human cells, but plant biologists are only beginning to scratch the surface of the often surprising ways that soil microbiota impact plants, from underground fungus-wired alarm systems to soil bacteria that can trigger defensive plant behavior or even act as a sort of vaccine. But despite these benefits, microbes are still primarily thought of as harbingers of disease……

Useful Tips about Organic Mold Removers

Useful Tips about Organic Mold Removers

By Clifford Woods

When most of us think about cleaning mold from a home, we envision the circus tent over the house pumping in gallons of putrid stinking poison that would kill everything and anything in the home. Well, what happens after the tent is lifted? All of that poison is now settled all over your home, on surfaces on books and sheets, blankets and kitchen appliances.

This simply means cleaning over everything once again, doubling all the labor, pain and time involved. So, instead of having to pay twice for something, how about trying a more organic way of removing mold from your home?

Useful Tips about Organic Mold RemoversIt must be noted that this isn’t suggested if you have black mold in your home or if you have a huge mold issue that involves more than a single room, because those issues need to be taken care of by a professional. But if you just have a little bit of mold, you can try using organic mold removers.

Instead of going out and buying the most expensive mold cleaners that you have no idea what’s gone into them, how about making your own? You can easily use products that you already have around your home.

The best organic mold remover that you can make is by taking 2 cups of spring water and then adding 2 tablespoons of tea tree oil in it. Tea tree oil is a broad-spectrum fungicide, which means that it will kill most of the fungus and mold that it comes into contact with right away. Tea tree oil is inexpensive and can be found in most health food stores. Remember, it has an odor that might take a few days to dissipate. Some people do not like the odor at all and that could really put a cramp on using this organic mold remover.

Once this organic mold remover has been placed and given a few minutes to saturate the mold, you can wipe away the dead spores making sure that you do this every few days until you see an improvement.

You can also just use all organic vinegar as well. If you put this vinegar into a spray bottle and spray it onto the mold, you will be killing over 82% of the mold and mildew on contact, and the rest you will be able to actually just wash away with a clean cloth. You don’t even have to wipe it away (if you can deal with the smell) until it dries. When it’s dry, it will no longer have that annoying odor and will really help you get rid of the mold in your home.

Additionally, there are organic mold removers made with beneficial microorganisms that do a great job of getting rid of mold and these are well worth looking into. Home made organic mold removers work well and are easy to make and beneficial microorganism based mold removers are very effective and inexpensive as well.

Mold Free Homes

Mold Free Homes
By Clifford Woods

Keeping a mold free home can sometimes be a real chore that if not properly taken care of, can really get away from you, especially if you live in an area that has a lot of wetness or humidity during specific times of the year. But there are many ways that you can make a mold free home without having to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars.

You can do it all naturally and get your home mold free in no time. You can feel confident that what you are doing is good for both the environment and for the people who live in your home as well. People can get very sick if constantly exposed to mold and mildew, so it’s a good idea if you think you have mold to start working on it right away.

The easiest way that you can get rid of and kill mold is by fresh air and sunlight. You can get rid of mold or mildew on your laundry by allowing it to dry outside on a line. Move other smaller items outside as well, but make sure that you move them back into the house before it rains or the sprinklers come on, because that will worsen the mold problem at hand.

If you have a space in the house that has mold or the smell of mildew, you can provide light from grow lights that mimic the sunlight and you can also put a fan into a window to get the air moving around inside the room as well. These simple things will really help keep a mold free home.

mold free homesNow, if you can see the mold on the walls or on your bathroom stall, then what you can do is make yourself a mixture of either all organic vinegar that you can buy from any health food store. The vinegar alone will help you get rid of almost all of the mold and mildew on contact and you don’t even need to wipe it clean, you can just spray and walk away (if you can endure the smell), because that will last until the vinegar dries.

Of course, you can make your own mixtures for natural mold removers by mixing together fresh spring water with organic oils, like tea tree oil or grape seed oil. The tee tree oil will be a bit more expensive and have an odor, but most people find the scent of it quite nice.

The grape seed oil usually costs a bit less and has absolutely no odor and both of these will help to kill the mold on contact, but its best go to back and scrub the walls or areas of the home that has the mold in it with a rough brush or a sponge with a course edge.

You can also add a bit of baking soda to the brush or sponge and this will ensure that you are getting up the rest of the mold or mildew that’s been left behind. You will have your home mold free in absolutely no time if you use all these organic and natural ways.
