  • I just rewash and use liquid fabric softener in the rinse cycle. You can also spray Febreze on them and wash them with regular detergent for added odor neutralization. If it's visible mold, use a colorsafe bleach or add Borax or OxyClean to it.

  • If you washed them and left them get moldy and then dried them You have set any stains from the mold. Sunlight will at least lighten them but may very well lighten the colors of the clothes as well. Whites it won't harm. Whites wash in bleach with hot water. Colored clothes try vinegar.
