    I'm not sure you can completely get mould stains out? You could probably clean the leather by wiping vinegar over it though.

    I'd look at putting some moisture absorbers in the cupboards to prevent any more damage to your clothes. I bought some hanging ones from woolies for my old house that had massive mould problems. They seemed to do the trick.

    Mix napisan oxyaction into a paste and leave it on the stain for 10-15 minutes. Throw into the wash (warm) and hang on the line to air dry. Should sort it out!

    Also heard that you can use a mixture of bi carb soda, vinegar and lemon juice. My SIL swears by this.

    Google Shannon lush. She uses oil of cloves to get rid of mould.
    I got rid of mould on some kids clothes by soaking them in Milton sterilising liquid (not the tablets, the solution).
    I made the solution double strength, but watch clothes closely. It will fade them if you just leave them to soak overnight. It should only take one or two hours. Then wash as usual and hang to dry in the sun.
    Sorry I can't help with the leather.
