Why remove mould with clove oil?

We have a great reference from a Brisbane City Council inspector reviewing flooded, smelly, already mould-growing homes.  He advised to keep away from chlorine bleach to clean mould as it only 'bleaches' the colour out and does not kill the mould. "It'll be back in a few weeks," he said. "CLOVE OIL is the best!" 

Clove oil perfume:  Spicy. Warm.  Oil of cloves combines well with: Lavender, Orange, Ylang Ylang.

Clove oil properties:  Analgesic, Expectorant, Stimulant.

Cleaning uses: Mould removal: Add a couple of drops of clove oil to a paste of bicarb and vinegar and scrub grout with a toothbrush every few months (source: Spotless). Clean mould from hard surfaces: mix 1/4 teaspoon of clove oil per 1 litre of water, spray on, leave 20 minutes and wipe off, spray on again and leave until mould dies and drops off (source: Shannon Lush, ABC local radio).
Room disinfectant

Personal uses: Clove oil has long been used for analgesic (pain killing) purposes.

  • Bronchitis and Colds
  • Infected Wounds
  • Insect Repellant
  • Mouth Sores
  • Muscle and Nerve Tension
  • Toothache

Clove oil is highly irritating to the skin and must be diluted to concentrations less than 1% prior to use.

Please take care as baby and sensitive skins may be affected by clove oil residue on items that come into close contact with the skin - for example, baby car seat covers.

To help keep mould to a minimum once you have eliminated it from your surfaces try our Mould aroma gel that removes mould spores from the air using clove oil.

Title : warm smell
Comment : I bought it remove mould and mildew - not sure if it works for that. Either way, it smells warm and earthy, and I am using it mixed with white vinegar and peppermint oil for an all-purpose surface spray. Seems good!

Comment : I didn't have a major mould problem however it worked well on the little we did have in the bathroom. So much better than supermarket products.

Title : Great product
Comment : We used this on the ceiling above our shower (that had mould on it) - and this product worked - it killed the mould. I was most impressed as I had tried other natural products for mould but they never quite worked.

By Bianca D. on 21 Oct. 2014 :

Title : GREAT for mould
