Mould and mildew have been the bane of my boating
life until I recently discovered this:
Bleach only bleaches, it does not kill.
of cloves kills mould and mildew. Dilute 1/4 teaspoon to 1 litre of water
in a spray bottle for hard surfaces.
I have also sprayed soft furnishings (duvets, squabs etc) and successfully killed mildew and stopped it spreading.
For leather dilute 1/4 teaspoon of oil
of cloves in 500 mils of baby oil - wipe on with old panty hose. Kills and cleans.
1 teaspoon of oil of cloves in a load of washing
will remove musty mildew odours from fabrics/clothing.
Dilute 1 kg of uniodised household salt
in 20 litres of water
for soft furnishings, curtains etc. Soak the fabric
and hang to dry without rinsing. Shake off salt
and wash as normal.
I also use Fabreeze on Matressess etc for a nice freshen up.
