I went to wear my leather jacket last week but when I grabbed it out of the wardrobe it had mould all over it. I guess its just a combination of all this wet weather and the fact our bedroom faces south and has a balcony over it so gets NO sun at all. It does have a big sliding door and a window that are open a lot but I think having these open may have contributed to the problem cos the air coming in has been the moisture laden southerly breezes you get before the rain typically.
I have taken everything out of the wardrobe and am washing all the clothes and have my leather jacket and a couple of other things ready to take up to the dry cleaners on Monday.
I have also vacummed and then wiped out the whole wardrobe with a hot water/bleach solution. There was mould on some of the drawers and on the skirting boards.
I was thinking maybe I should put the heater in there to dry it out and keep the door open for ventialtion while we are having good weather. Is this a good idea? Is there anything else I should do?
I really want to be able to start putting stuff back in the wardrobe tonight cos at the moment all the clothes that have been washed since last week are sitting on my bed and I do want to sleep tonight
Thanks for your help. Jo.
PS Is there a forum where cleaning and stuff is dicussed? I loked quickly but couldn't find one.
