get rid of the mould

Postby cocobernese » Wed, 19 Dec 2007 12:02 am

What I have been doing is to layout all the leather and wool goods under the sun when it is not raining. Use a brush to dust off the hairy stuff first, then expose the damanged part under the ray and heat come through your window.

It works well on my Armani suits brought from NYC.

I have done this before too. And it works. Problem nowadays is, there is hardly any sun. That is, IF we are at home, to begin with. And yes... sigh... today I chose to use a bag that I have not used in about a month, and guess what... Yes, you're right. There are white patches of mould on the inside of it! Uggghhhhhh!

I can't wait for sunny days again :roll:

Gee... Thanks guys!

Yes, i have brought some of my winter clothes here, so I can have something to wear when I travel to Europe! :-)

I was in Malaysia for one week, and coming back to Singapore to find even some of my SUMMER leather shoes have a layer of lovely green sheen covered... It is quite gross...

But Thank you for all the advices, and I will try different ways...

when I saw the title I thought it was to offer advice...

but since it's started a useful thread, I'll second the vacuum bag method, seems to have worked for a trip I'm on at the moment where I'm wearing my cold weather clothes for the first time since this time last year

a question I have as I also have returned home to the green slime is, is it better to leave the windows open a crack while away for more than a week?

one piece of advice I was given was to leave the room and closet doors open

It certainly helps to leave them open as that introduces air circulation and lessens the chances of humidity sticking around

It'd be interesting to find out if antifungal washing powders exist out there that would prevent clothes getting mouldy (eg Canesten washing powder/liquid?)

Perhaps someone entrepreneurial here might see an opportunity in inventing such a product if it doesn't already exist....

"b4^^.aft u"? "realli" ?

weixiang, you seem to have useful things to contribute - try using proper English and not this SMS nonsense in the forums, it makes you come across as unintelligent

EADG, totally agreed. Why this nonsensical language exists is beyond me.

You are not in msn. You are on a an English speaking and reading expatriate website. You are not on a local website populated with lians & bengs. While here, try to act like you have some intelligence. Otherwise you will be just ignored due to the perceived lack of intelligence. Give it a try. Just because you friends do it doesn't make it right. It just makes all of them look stupid and not worthy of any respect.
