Eco-Friendly Mold Fighters, Part 2

Eco-Friendly Mold Fighters, Part 2

Dec 12, 2006

Dear Readers, we went to the Dark Side.

You may recall that about a month ago we wrote about our moldy shower dilemma. We'd tried vinegar, borax, non-chlorine bleach, and Ecover Cream Scrub. We also tried baking soda, lemon juice, hydrogen peroxide, and grapefruit seed extract. All to no avail.

Jump to a day or two before our landlord began showing the apartment to prospective tenants.

We panicked, and in that panic, we ignored the fact that years ago we became very ill after using bleach as a cleaner -- the reason we use green cleaners now. We borrowed some Tilex and Comet, and along with a bottle of Windex for the glass doors, we tackled the shower. No, we didn't mix these products, we used them at separate times. And yes, they worked. But we ended up sick. And we're going back to the Land of Green Cleaners.

(Oh, and after we moved out, we used Emma's Eco-Clean. They did a much better job than we did.)
