How to Use White Vinegar for Mildew Odor


Mildew and mildew odor are common problems in many households. Luckily there are simple and effective ways to combat the problem, using inexpensive household ingredients that do the trick without much scrubbing or follow-up. White vinegar is among the most effective mildew removers, and does not contain any of the harsh chemical compounds that are so common in commercial household cleansers.

Things You'll Need

  • Spray bottle
  • Sponge
  • White vinegar
  • Water
  • Fill spray bottle with equal parts water and white vinegar

  • Spray the solution on the walls and floor and other surfaces in the rooms where you smell the mildew odor, being careful to avoid furniture or textiles.

  • For areas with visible mildew growth soak the sponge in the vinegar solution and use it to wipe down the soiled surfaces.

Tips & Warnings

  • For particularly strong mildew, use a solution with a more vinegar than water, or spray 100% vinegar directly to the affected area.
