  • Vinegar, bi carb soda and lemon juice are what i use like others have said. But its also good to know about milton and eucalytus oil and tea tree oil. Lots of great ideas ladies.

  • Ohh the sour milk sounds interesting, I am going to try that myself.

  • Some great advice given below.

  • Use sour milk & put it in the sun to dry – the mould will disappear, then wash it as normal.

  • I used either white vinegar or a combination of vinegar and sodium bicarbonate to get mould off furnishings…works a treat

  • Bi carb, vinegar and lemon. Also, mould hates the sun and that will make the lemon bleach it.
