Preventing Mold

Every week I had to throw out a lot of fresh produce due to spoilage. The vegetables and fruits stored outside and as well as inside the fridge were getting spoiled due to mold and fungus. Then I found out about the cloves. Cloves contain a compound called eugenol which can prevent mold. Now, once a week, I wipe off the counters and surfaces outside and inside the fridge where I store fresh produce with a wet wipe dabbed with 5-6 drops of clove essential oil. The mold is significantly reduced! Clove essential oil is very strong. So, make sure you are not allergic to it.
