Stowaway Mold

Irritant: Mold spores on the trunks of real trees

Remedy: Fill a spray bottle with a solution of 1 part bleach to 20 parts water. Before bringing a tree inside, spritz the trunk and use a rag to wipe it down, focusing on the base. (This reduces potentially rash-causing sap, too.) Let the tree dry, then tote it indoors.
