You’ve been cleaning black mold all wrong – my simple tip means you don’t need to use harsh chemicals

NO ONE wants to find black mold in their home.

But if you do discover some, a cleaning and lifestyle guru has a simple method for removing it without a single harsh chemical. 


Australian home cleaning and organizing guru Carolina Mccauley shared a step-by-step video guide for removing black mold on her popular TikTok account. 

First, she advised people to fill a spray bottle with undiluted vinegar.

Next, she said to spray it directly on the black mold and let it sit for 20 minutes.

In the video, she was handling black mold around her window. 

Once the time is up, she said to simply wipe it away with a cloth.

“Nice and clean again,” she concluded.

Black mold left untreated can cause a series of health issues in people such as “ stuffy nose, sore throat, coughing or wheezing, burning eyes, or skin rash,” per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The reaction can be stronger in people with asthma. 

Black mold is mostly found in places with moisture, such as faucets, pipes, and windows. 

When cleaning black mold on your own, it’s best to take safety precautions such as wearing gloves and a face mask to prevent coming into direct contact with the mold and breathing it in.

While Carolina’s tip was applauded by her followers, it’s best to leave larger cases of mold growth for professionals. 

SafeWise, a crime and safety trends website, recommends calling a professional if your black mold has grown to cover more than a 10-square-foot radius.

Vinegar is not just ideal for cleaning black mold, either. 

Vinegar can be used to brighten clothing, remove limescale from toilets, clean raw vegetables, and so much more.
