    Default Wats with the closet????

    So iv got all my heels in my WIR on a floor shoe rack, after 8 months a couple of them have gotten spots all over them, looks like moss or something...??

    And 2 of my shirts have it to....

    Any one know what this is?? And how to stop it from happening again??

    The clothes were clean and washed and havent been worn in months and the shoes have never even been worn yet so they are completely clean also

    Is it like a light green, sometimes white, moss sort of colour? I have had this happen to a couple of my leather handbags and leather/vinyl belts. It is mould unforunately and I think mine is because my walk in robe is right beside our ensuite, so there is a lot of humidity and moisture. I have made sure to have a good wipeout and try and make sure my room is well ventilated.

    Just be careful around any mould spores. I use vinegar and bi carb soda when I do a wipe down. You can also buy those things (forgotten the name) where you put them in your wardrobe and they take out the moisture and also a de-humidifier can work as well. Just be sure to go through your cupboard and make sure you get everything out that has the mould on it. Good Luck!

    Thats wat i thought at first, but its not excatly looking like mould, n i wiped in with baby wipes n i dont think its come back (il have to check)
    It was only 2 shoes n 2 shirts.

    It is right next to my rnsuite also n i was eomdering if it had something to do with that.

    Maybe i sud move everything to the otherside of the wir (those items were on the shower wall side.
