I use a spray bottle with a mixture of baking soda, molasses and water. I sometimes add a little soap or milk to the formula. So far the results have kept the mildew and fungus down to a minimum. It also helps keep the organic garden free from pesticides.

Powdery Mildew Control Ingredients:

24 Oz Spray Bottle

1 Tablespoon of Baking Soda

1 Tablespoon  of Molasses or Powdered Milk if desired

A squirt or two of mild Dishwashing Soap
