Quilt With Us

Does anyone know how to clean a quilt that has mold on it?  My daughter's storage building flooded and a box with two quilts I made her got wet--the Dallas heat produced some mold on them while she and her new husband were in Hawaii!

I would appreciate any advice.

There is a product that Zep makes called Odorstroyer.  It is a product with an enzyme in it used by alot of commercial cleaning companies.  It is great for any hard to get rid of smell and soils spots like pet urine, smoke smells and especially mold.  I just finished removing gross moldy spots off a denim jacket as well as a fannel quilt.  the jacket was in much worst shape so I soaked it for a couple of days before I washed it regularly.  Carpet cleaners will actually inject this product into carpets where pet odors and stains are very severe.  I used it in the house we live in now when we moves in because the cat smell was so bad and other people I have recommended it to have use it on moldy was and have had great result.  Zep is an American company so the product is easily obtainable in both Canada and the USA.  I'm not sure of the vinegar route although it does work with tuperware but the water must be cold for it to work.  Good luck!

Soak it in White vinegar and regular laundry detergent.  That should take out the odor too.

Mold can be a problem. Try a safe laundry soap with bleach, like Tide.
