Mold in my closet

Post by Em Eye » Wed, 09 Nov 2005 1:16 pm

I keep my clothes in the closet in our second room. Since I've changed jobs and don't need to wear my corporate clothes everyday they have been sitting in the closet. I went hunting for something the other day and noticed mould on some of my clothes. I've pulled eveything out and washed it to put in those bags where you suck out all of the air. I've put one of the tubs that suck the moisture out of the air, but here in Singapore it gets filled fast.

Any other ideas how to keep the mould out?

Do they sell those little sealed electric bar type dehumidifier thingos here? Sorry I can't remember what they call them. I know in HK half the flats there had them permanently fitted and you could buy them at any electrical/hardware type place. Mind you your cupboards have to have electric points inside them as well. :? :-k

Must admit haven't had that problem at all since we moved here which I found strange as we went through 100's of Thirsty Hippos in HK and I was expecting it to be much worse here.
