Assuming you already have mold, here’s how to get rid of it safely and naturally with tea tree oil

Depending on the size of area of mold you are tackling, you will need:

Instructions

 

    Mix 2 teaspoons of tea tree oil with 2 cups of warm water, add it to the spray bottle and give it a good shake to mix.

    To destroy the mold, spray the solution on the affected areas and leave for an hour or so, before attempting to scrub and remove the mold residue.

    Once an hour has passed, spray the affected area once more and immediately get to work scrubbing and removing the mold residue with the scrub brush & toothbrush. Once removed, wipe down with a damp cloth to clean.

    Once all the mold is removed, lightly spray the area once again and work the spray into all the little nooks and crannies, but don’t rinse, leave the tea tree oil in place. This last step will help to prevent the mold and mildew from returning for quite some time.

How to Make Organic Butter

Ingredients

  • 2 cups organic heavy cream
  • sea salt, to taste

Method

  • Pour cream into food processor and process for about 10 minutes.  It will turn to a thick whipped cream first.
  • Continue processing until it turns  grainy and separate into butter and butter milk.  Drain buttermilk from butter.
  • Scrape butter from the sides.  Put in a clean bowl.  Place your butter into a colander and strain off the buttermilk.
  • Rinse the butter with cold water, gently turning the butter with a spoon while the cold water runs over it until the water runs clear.
  • When the butter is clean, squeeze more  liquid from butter using wooden paddles or spoons to smash butter and pour off liquid.
  • You can keep it in a jar or bowl, and store it in the fridge, or the freezer. This type of butter can last for several months before going bad.
