How to Kill Mold with Hydrogen Peroxide

The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has suggested that hydrogen peroxide is an effective tool to kill mold in your home. The type of peroxide you can purchase at the drugstore or supermarket is generally a 3% concentration. Spray any mold infested surface very thoroughly with an undiluted 3% concentration of peroxide. Let the hydrogen peroxide sit and work to kill mold for at least 10 minutes. Scrub away the mold and stains.

You may have to use this technique a few times to successfully get rid of all the mold in any given area. This works only on hard surfaces, not soft surfaces like furnishings.
