If you’re like many and have to park your car outside exposed to the elements year-round, the unfortunately result can be that moisture creeps in. If left untreated, moisture can turn into mould damaging both your car’s interior, as well as your health.
Luckily, there are a few home remedies you can use to remove mould quickly and easily. Here are our tips:
- Grab a spray bottle and fill it with distilled white vinegar.
- If it is a sunny day, leave your car outside but open all doors for ventilation. If it is raining, park your car under cover before commencing ventilation. Leave doors open for at least 5 minutes.
- Grab a paper mask, preferably one with filters, to protect your lungs during mould removal. It is always better to be safe than sorry.
- Spray the bottle of distilled white vinegar on everything infested with mould, as well as a few inches around these areas. Spores can be growing before they are visible to the naked eye, so we want to stop this process in its tracks.
- Make sure all areas are completely saturated. Don’t worry, the smell will go away!
- Let the vinegar soak in and sit on the mould for at least 10 minutes in order to kill the mould.
- Once at least 10 minutes have passed, wipe off any residue left behind by the mould.
