  • I used to use a solutionof bleach water. But my fav guy Mike Holmes (Holmes on homes)....says dawn dish soap and water and elbow grease works best. For fabric I think putting some baking soda in the wash may help....

  • Mold from clothes you can use bleach, borax or baking soda. You can also look up mold removing detergent and use that. Always wash the clothes in hot water it kills mold, then leave out to dry in the sun if you can. Both kill mold.

    As for cleaning I use bleach, dawn and water like other ladies suggested. If that doesnt work I use a squirt bottle with pure original (not mint or any colored) Listerine. It kills mold and mildew.

  • I say spray it with bleach and let it dry, then attack it with a magic eraser. Helped when I had a busted pipe in my old apartment- Good luck!
