Mold in your birdbaths

In hot humid weather green mold can form very quickly in your birdbaths.  It is a good idea to monitor them frequently.  I have found that the Clorox Clean-Up® product works quite well as a cleaning agent to remove green mold from birdbaths.  I empty the birdbaths that need cleaning and spray Clorox Cleanup into them.  Wait a few seconds and then wipe the residue from the bottoms of the birdbaths with a paper towel.  Blue shop towels work very well for this purpose.  Rinse the birdbaths thoroughly with clean water and refill them.
