  • Supposedly tea tree oil is one of the best things for that, and it's safe for everyone to be around. http://www.care2.com/greenliving/tea-tree-oil-home-uses.html#

  • What is the mold and mildew on? Bleach works on some surfaces.

  • 80% water, 20% bleach will clean your walls and such, but it always grows back. The rundown house we moved out of had a mildew problem so bad that our metal bed frame that was on the floor got covered by the crap. That place had NO insulation and single pane windows. You could also see beams of light streaming in through the cracks in the door.

  • I think I just used cleaners like 409 or a cleaner special for cleaning mold. Might try places like menards or lowes and they might be able to lead you in the right way.
