    Default How do i get rid of mould??

    Ok so I bought a pram off eBay and the sellers didn't describe it properly, and when DXH went to pick it up didn't check it over, so it has mould in patches on every bit of fabric!
    Can someone tell me how to get the mould off? Or is it a stain that won't come out??

    I've been told milton works, otherwise I've had success with diluted clove oil on various types of fabric.

    Vinegar causes mould spores to explode and eliminate them.

    Sent from my GT-I5503T using BubHub

    White Vinegar diluted 50/50 with water spray it on then wipe off with a damp rag

    I tried straight white vinegar and a toothbrush and that was last night, dose it come out straight away or will it take time?
    The toothbrush did nothing but I just doused the straps in it, so here's hoping

    I would have too they should state mould or remove it before selling it!
    Glad it all worked out though
