Kitchen Mold - Do You Know Where to Look?
Your kitchen can be a melting pot for the growth of mold. Outside leaking pipes, here are few other sources that could help with the growth of mold.
The Refrigerator Drip Tray: This tray is easily forgotten. It is found under the fridge, it could be in the back under the fan grate, or bottom front.
Garbage Disposal: Mold can grow on rotting food in the garbage disposal if you don't keep it clean. To help avoid mold, pour vinegar down at least once a week.
Compost: Another less thought of mold source is the compost bucket. Make sure to remove it every day and keep covered.
Cutting Boards: In most homes this item is used on a daily basis, but it is a good source for mold growth. Cleaning it once a week with vinegar and let stand for 10 minutes before rinsing should cut down on the threat of mold.
