Bleach is the number one way to kill mold spores, and the Clorox Company is a front runner in the bleach department. But since bleach is not healthy to inhale, especially when used in confined spaces or over extended periods, it would seem like a good idea for Clorox to make a natural, non-hazardous mold killer using vinegar, tea tree oil or peroxide. Counterintuitive? No, especially if marketed under the Green Works label. This healthier alternative to a bleach based product would allow consumers to use the product on hard and soft surfaces and be safe to use around children and pets. Also, it would not need to be wiped or rinsed. It could be made available in a reusable spray bottle and in larger bottles of concentrated mold killer formula which can be diluted with water by the customer.
My idea is simple, what it do is you put it in your drain and leave it if you want. As hair or anything falls down the drain it will be caught by the catcher and you will be able to bring it up without the water being clogged up. It will be very easy to clean just by wiping it off. I know everyone got the problem with their teenage daughters washing their hair in sinks and it ends up clogging. Well with this invention you can prevent that cause it will get caught on the grizzles on the product. Even rings and othe item can also be prevented from goin down the drain, and it also can save alot of money by not having to call any plumbers to come and unclog the drain or having to go out and by snakes to stick down there. It also can be used in bathtubs also.
Bathroom ceilings are notorious for forming mildew and mold and the only way to take care of the problem is to stand on a stool or ladder and attack the ceiling with a sponge or rag loaded with mildew/mold cleaner. Unfortunately, using bleach can be hazardous to breathe, white vinegar smells awful, and both can drip on the user's clothing or, worse, in their eyes. My suggestion would be to not only create a healthier alternative to removing mildew and mold (see post on Natural Mold Removers) but also make a telescoping cleaning wand with a triangular ratcheting-head, something like the Rubbermaid Extendable Scrubber* which has a pointed end to get into corners. Pre-loaded disposable mildew/mold cleaning pads, along the lines of a Swiffer pad, could be affixed to the wand, allowing short people, the elderly, or ladder challeneged users to safely clean the ceiling without fearing an accident or getting cleaning solution on their clothing or in their hair and/or eyes.
Unfortunately, I can't seem to import my drawing of the wand so I've included a link to a picture of the Rubbermaid Extendable Scrubber:
Totally off the subject - why not add a simple pencil type line drawing tool to the above toolbar?
Similar to DampRid, a product that absorbs moisture but that you can stick in various locations like a peel and stick air freshener. Then you can stick it behind the toilet and other hard to reach, damp places
,My Idea to avoid mold is to create a longhandle brush,with a bottle attached on the bottom of brush.The handle would be sturdy and hollow so water could go through it and mix with clorox product.(Safe FOR ALL PLANTS) This CLOROX RAPID RELEASE BRUSH would be used to clean vinyl siding on houses,garages and storage sheds.I would like to see a NEW CLEANING PRODUCT developed to clean the vinyl siding on house but safe for animals and plants that are around outside of homes.In this day and age we have to think about ecology making products safe outdoors for our animals and plants.
