Cleanliness is vital in controlling mold. Mold spores from affected food can
build up in your refrigerator, dishcloths, and other cleaning utensils.
Clean the inside of the refrigerator every
few months with 1 tablespoon of baking soda dissolved in a quart of water.
Rinse with clear water and dry. Scrub visible mold (usually black) on rubber
casings using 3 teaspoons of bleach in a quart of water.
Keep dishcloths, towels, sponges, and mops
clean and fresh. A musty smell means theyíre spreading mold around. Discard
items you canít clean or launder.
Keep the humidity level in the house below
