I am visiting my sister for a few weeks, and because I have started this blog and been experimenting with all of my anti-fungal solutions and potions, she had a few mold-related projects lined up for me to help her with. Oh, joy! I mean, I guess I should expect this kind of reception. Cleaning for mold has now morphed into my acknowledged “specialty,” even in my own family. I guess if that means I’m helping someone, I’ll take it!
One job she had lined up for me was to help her clean some linen curtain panels for mold. The back-story with the panels is as follows: My sister just moved into a new home 6 weeks ago. Many of the windows in her new home are double-height, and all of her window treatments had to be custom-made or altered to fit her windows. Unfortunately for my sister, and the health of her home, the woman she hired to alter her curtain panels lived in a moldy home. When my sister got the panels back, they were basically contaminated with mold. You could smell the moldy smell on them. It was bad and stinky. Her home is clean and beautiful. It wasn’t going to fly.
