Molly, owner of Casa Divina Lodge in Ecuador, shares with us her good tip:

“This is a cleaning product that we use here at the lodge, which is a place we need to protect from moisture and mold. White vinegar, in addition to being highly effective for cleaning, is a powerful antifungal.

My recipe: take half a liter of water, half a liter of white vinegar, add 20 drops of essential oils of tea tree.

Simply shake well before each use. It can be applied on walls, tables … this is the best cleaning product that I had here at the hotel!
