I couldn’t resist sharing this with you guys!
The reader I have been corresponding with about treating “Dry Clean Only” clothing for mold recently wrote in with her own cleaning for mold experiment with a recently purchased designer vest. She wrote:
More good news! I couldn’t resist this article of clothing, and as the instructions said, “Machine Washable,” I slipped off the tag and treated it. I did not HEPA vacuum it. (Note: In my post, I HEPA vacuumed the “Dry Clean Only” pants I was experimenting with. HERE is that post, if you are interested.) I would like to find a HEPA vacuum that is very appropriate for delicate fabric, any suggestions? Instead, I washed the vest and put EC3 Mold Solution Concentrate in the wash and rinse cycle. I did not dry on high heat. I will wash it again, but found the one treatment made it acceptable. (See my photos below of the mold test plates for the results.)
Feel free to use it on your site if you like.
