With no hesitation, I vouch for Tea Tree Oil and its effectiveness. I have been using it even before I read several articles about it. I first witnessed it do wonders cleaning my refrigerator interior. The molds just went streaming down! The very molds that I’ve seen there for so long. You see, we are still using the hand me down 5cu.ft. Kelvinator fridge from our folks. All the while I thought it came with it being old. I also use Tea Tree Oil in my laundry. In lieu of the unnatural and non-environment friendly, drop or two of chlorox, I was advised to put in the laundry to keep that “kulob” that newly laundered clothes tend to smell still when they don’t get sun-dried. This happens during the rainy season.
Tea Tree Oil does wonders and leaves fabrics clean and smell great especially during times when Mr. sun won’t show up. I put a drop or two in my usual handsoap and liquid dish detergent. I also use it when I concoct my own liquid soap made from left-over soaps. Its uses are just limitless, to think that years back I just thought it was just good at zapping zits.
I get our supply from GIGA. A bottle lasts an average of 4 months. Not bad. Maximizing does tricks!
