Cleaning queen Chantel Mila (pictured), who goes by Mama Mila online, shared her easy homemade cleaning spray recipe to kill mould and stop it coming back
In a spray bottle, the mum-of-two pours in a cup of vinegar as she said its acidity helps rid mould spores
Then she adds 20 drops of clove oil which acts as an anti-fungal agent, killing mould spores.
Finally, the organisation queen adds 20 drops of tea tree oil she says helps prevent mould from returning.
She said to then spray the concoction onto a mould-prone surface and ‘leave for 20 minutes while the spray does the hard work’ and rinses off.
In the comments, Chantel said peppermint oil is also an anti-fungal and can be used instead of clove oil.
Her video racked up more than 51,000 views in just 12 hours and drew in thousands of ‘likes’.
This isn’t the first time Chantel’s handy home hacks have gone viral – previously she wowed her fans with her three tricks for making your house smell divine.
The 32-year-old said the best thing about the tricks is they begin to work instantly and have your home smelling fresher in no time.

MY FIVE DESERT ISLAND CLEANING BUYS
I love making my own DIY cleaning products and often the DIY’s use simple, household ingredients that are found in any pantry! My top cleaning products include baking soda, white vinegar, lemons, tea tree oil and lavender essential oil.
MY THREE LITTLE-KNOWN CLEANING SECRETS
1. Denture tablets are a top secret cleaning agent. They can whiten your toilets, whiten clothes, whiten bathroom sinks – they’re amazing!
2. Putting on your favourite song while cleaning is a simple way to make cleaning fun. I ask my Amazon Echo Show 15 to put on my 10 minute ‘cleaning playlist’ and try to make cleaning as enjoyable process. You’ll be surprised by how much you can get done!
3. Red wine spills can be quickly removed with soda water. It’s the best way to lift it from your carpet or clothing without staining.
Between work and family commitments, our weeks can be a constant juggle. Our Amazon Echo Show 15 has been an absolute game changer at our house, and helps us stay organised during the week.
We’ve customised our screen to display our shopping lists, to-do lists so I can see what’s on for the day while drinking my morning tea and the family calendar helps us keep on top of the kid’s activities, school key dates, our appointments and business meetings.
The first trick can have any home smelling like your favourite cafe – and all you need is a candle, a heatproof bowl and some coffee beans.
‘Place coffee grounds or beans in a heatproof bowl with a tea light. The warmth of the candle will heat up the coffee and your whole house will smell incredible,’ she said – before warning not to leave the candle unattended.
The second trick is perfect for the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry areas.
‘Clean your sink with baking soda on a lemon to rid rust spots, cut through dirt,’ she said.

She uses baking soda on a lemon for the second trick – this is used to clean sinks leaving them sparkling and odour free
The video demonstration revealed how the baking soda topped lemon made the sink shine in seconds.
The third has takes thirty minutes to take effect but is a gamechanger, according to the star.
‘Place 10 drops essential oil into 1/2 cup baking soda. Sprinkle on carpets, leave for an hour and vacuum to remove carpet odours.
‘Check your vacuum manual to check if you vacuum can be used with fine particles,’ she said.
Chantel uses an old vacuum for the hack and says she has ‘never had an issue’.
The post was liked by more than 20,000 of her fans in the first 24 hours with many leaving comments thanking her for the ‘amazing’ tips.
‘Just did the mattress today with baking soda and oils. It made the whole room smell so fresh,’ one woman wrote on the video.
