Hi, I'm Rachel Yatuzis, and I'm going to give you some black mold stain removal tips. The first thing you want to do is scrub the actual mold off if you can, and you're going to do this by making a paste with vinegar and baking soda. It'll be kind of like Soft Scrub, and you just want to apply it like right here. A lot of times black mold is in cracks and crevices so really, really scrub it to get rid of the look of the mold. There may still be some spores in there, so you want to make sure to have some bleach handy and spray that with bleach water. Bleach water, if you have a quart spray bottle you just want to add about a cap of bleach to it. That's enough to kill the bacteria, and it's not too strong where it's gonna, you know, be harmful for you to breathe in. If you don't have vinegar around the house you can also try alcohol. Alcohol will kill the mold and mildew also, and you just want to get it on a cotton ball and apply it to the mildew or the black mold and let it sit, and then get a sponge and wipe it up. I'm Rachel Yatuzis, and those are some black mold stain removal tips.
