Tip: Eliminating Mildew

To get rid of the stench of mildew in your drawers and other surfaces, wipe the area with undiluted antiseptic mouthwash. If the mildew is growing in out-of-the-way spots, place a few cotton balls soaked in bleach on the area. Wait a few hours, then wipe with a clean sponge that has been dampened with warm water. If you have mildew in a rug that your are not willing to part with then make a mixture of equal parts vinegar and water and apply it the affected area. Make sure the rug dries completely, you may use a hairdryer set on a low speed to cut the drying time down.
