Mold is basically digesting your clothing if it has begun to grow on it, and it leaves a stain where it has been, so the longer it grows the larger the stain, the less you’ll want to use the clothing and the harder it will be to remove the stain and the smell.
If the mold hasn’t been growing too long, there are some products that will help remove it from your clothing:
Washing them in a detergent that is designed to kill mold
Bleach – can help lighten stains
Vinegar – helps remove the smell of mold
Borax – doesn’t emit toxic fumes
Be sure to wash the items in hot water and run through 2 complete wash cycles. A great way to make sure the mold has been killed is to line dry the clothing in the sun, where the sun’s ultraviolet rays will not only help to fade the stains, but will work to kill the mold as well.
If you have mold growing on your clothing, your home might have a mold problem, if you do…
