  • Well mold is one thing and mildew is another so idk if this will help..I use oxyclean with a bottle of vinegar on the clothes I sometimes buy at thriftstores..they always have that nasty mildewy smell...I let them soak overnight...sometimes have to do that 2 or 3 times but it will work eventually...

  • I would use bleach and also hang in direct sunlight to kill mold spores. Use as hot water as you can without damaging fabric. I would wash all clothing twice.
