TikTok cleaning expert Chantel Mila, posted her clever hack on TikTok for her 1 million followers.
The mother-of-two shared on her account @mama_mila_ a homemade formula, which promises to banish mould and prevent it coming back.
Chantel said that all you need is three ingredients, one cup of white vinegar, 20 drops of clove oil, and 20 drops of tea tree oil.
The content creator claimed that the acidity in the vinegar will banish mould spores, while the clove oil has anti-fungal properties and the tea tree oil prevents the mould returning.
You simply need to mix the ingredients together and add the mixture to a spray bottle before spritzing the infested area and leaving for 20 minutes.

Chantel demonstrates the mixture’s fantastic results by spraying it on her bathroom tiles, before scrubbing the area with a brush to reveal spotless results.
Many of her followers were grateful for the mould-blasting tip that doesn’t use bleach.
One person said: ‘Finally. Someone who’s not recommending bleach.’
While another added: ‘Better than alternatives.’
A third said: ‘Def trying this!.’
And a fourth commented: ‘This is so helpful!!!’
The cleaning wiz answered some questions such as if you can use it on other walls outside of the bathroom, which she said you can.

Another TikToker was wondering if you can use something else instead of clove oil, which has traditionally been used to ease digestive issues and pain.
Chantel replied: ‘Tea tree oil and peppermint oil are also antifungals.’
Keep in mind that if you have mould or damp, it’s important to find out why you have excess moisture in your home.
If you want to prevent it returning, you have to take steps to limit the moisture in the air.
You may be able to remove the mould yourself, but for larger or more tough areas you may have to use bleach, or get a professional to help you.
