I haven't really tried it but this is advise that was given after the floods we had last year................no idea who Shannon is
To remove mold
from soft furnishings, canvas
and outside areas (where the salt
won't end up in the garden), mix one kilogram of ordinary house salt into one bucket of water. Wash the affected surface, wait until the salt crust forms and brush off with a broom.
But Shannon says the best killer of mould is oil
of cloves, available from the chemist or supermarket.
To use oil
of cloves as a mold
Add half a teaspoon of oil of cloves to 1 litre of water - no more than that.
Put it into a spray bottle, spray the surface and leave for 20 minutes.
Wipe the surface clean, then re-spray and leave it.
It will take between 24 to 48 hours for the mould spores to die and drop off.
If you need to clean your carpet and get rid of the smell caused by water damage, Shannon has a special concoction for steam cleaners:
Use half the amount of soap recommended in the instructions for your steam cleaner, and add the following:
half a cup each of of bi-carb soda, white vinegar and methylated spirits
Two teaspoons each of eucalyptus oil and glycerine.
Steam clean your carpet as usual.
