    Default Mould on a pram

    I saw some great tips on removing cigarette smell on a pram so thought I'd try my luck!! We were giving a pram thats in good nick but was stored in an under the house set up by our friends so has some mould on it. I've gotten a lot of it off with exit mould, but there are some stubborn bits that just won't shift! We've got an insert we bought for it so not bothered about bleaching it a bit, but I don't want to leave those stubborn bits as I just don't know how it will affect bubs. We've bought a new pram for every day use, this mouldy one was going to go to my folks as they will take the baby a few days a week. Any ideas how to de-mould it?
    Thanks!!

    I've used napisan or such and just wet the mould spot then layer with napisan and rub it in till it's like a paste let it soak a while and it should come off, it may leave marks like bleach if you leave it long time, but you said that doesn't bother you anyway :-)

    I had mould in the seat of a walker and made up the saltiest warm water solution, when you think it couldn't get any saltier add another spoonful lol. I put it over the mould as thick as possible then let it dry in the sun a few days. The salt rises to the top and then you rub it with a stiff brush. Got most of mine off.

    Yep like a pp said make a paste out of some napi San and spread it on, scrub it in with an old toothbrush, leave it for ten minutes or so before rinsing thoroughly. Our black pram was covered in mould and this did the trick without bleaching the black.

    Not sure if it will bleach it but I've always used white vinegar for mould removal.
