By Tommy True

Once in a while you may grab fuzzy black or green spots on a bathroom wall or in the kitchen table.

This very likely is mildew, the name for all the spores that are health hazard & a frightening dream to the proprietor.

When it gets to the walls & ceilings, it's hard to take out it. This task is of moderately jammy level. The first thing that you've to do is to wear rubber or latex gloves.

You may spray them with a solution of half a cup of chlorine bleach, 1/3 cup powder laundry detergent & one gallon hot water.

Start implementing from the base to the upper parts of the wall. You can gently take off the surface mildew with the use of a plastic scrubber sponge. With this sponge, wash thoroughly with pure water.

When it gets dry implement paint with anti-mildew agent in order not to do it another time soon. Here are also several things that you may do for the ceilings. You have to wear rubber or latex gloves. Dip a sponge in a bucket full of 1/2 a cup of chlorine bleach, 1/3 a cup of power laundry detergent & 1 gallon of hot water.
