Mitigate Mildew

Choose this safe solution instead of poisonous fungicides to eliminate
bothersome mildew from your flower and vegetable plants.

  • 1 tablespoon baking soda or washing soda
  • 1 tablespoon liquid soap (optional—the soap adds insecticidal qualities)
  • 1 gallon water

Easy Directions

Buy or round up a gallon jug of water and add the baking soda or washing soda
(and optional soap). Screw on the top and shake vigorously to blend. Pour
into a spray bottle and spray on mildew.

does this work on walls as well? i dont know if its mold or mildew or even what the difference is, but the last rain my windows were left open and now its really gross along the window edges. i tried soap and water and that worked to a point but i need something slightly more permanent. thanks for the great advice

For mildewed clothes and towels, try soaking them in vinegear. You can just add a cup to the wash water, and maybe some instead of fabric softener in the rinse.
This spray looks great.

Oh thank goodness! I stopped using bleach for our enviroment and could not get rid of the mildew anymore. I had tried other solutions but to no avail. Living in Florida, there is a lot of mildew. I will try it and let you know!
