How To Get Mold Out Of Baby Clothes
Mold is a common household problem. It can be found in showers, kitchens and bathrooms. Unfortunately, it can also get on baby clothes. If your baby’s clothes have been affected by mold, don’t fret. Follow these steps to get rid of the mold.
Step 1: Collect Supplies
Before starting the cleaning process, it’s important to have the right supplies on hand. The following items should be collected:
- White vinegar
- Baking soda
- Spray bottle
- Clean white cloths
- Washing machine
Step 2: Wipe Off Excess Mold
Using a clean, white cloth, wipe off any excess mold that you can see. Make sure to do this in a well-ventilated area and discard the cloth as soon as it gets dirty.
Step 3: Make A Cleaning Solution
Mix equal parts of white vinegar and water in a spray bottle. Spray the solution on the affected area and let it sit for a few minutes.
Step 4: Scrub The Area
Using a soft cloth, scrub the area with baking soda to help remove any tough spots that won’t come off with the vinegar solution.
Step 5: Wash The Clothing
Place the clothing in the washing machine and use the hottest setting allowed. Add a cup of white vinegar to the washing load and after washing, dry the clothes in the hot dryer.
Step 6: Inspect The Clothing
Once the washing and drying process is complete, inspect the clothing to make sure all the mold has been removed. If there are any stubborn spots left, you may need to repeat the cleaning process.
Mold on baby clothes can be a nuisance but it’s not an impossible task. With these easy steps, you’ll have your baby’s clothes looking as good as new in no time.
