    Default Removing mold

    Mother in laws corsa has a leak in the boot which I've gotta sort next week.

    but the back seats are now Growing their own little mold farm because of it.

    Think some of the mold killer you can buy for your house will be ok?

    Do you know anyone with a vax? Unless you can get one it'll be a struggle to remove it along with smell completely

    Careful with some of the mould removers, especially for kitchens and bathrooms, they contain Sodium Hyperchlorite which will bleach the seats.

    You need to kill the bacteria etc so a good scrub with something to kill it, wet vac will get rid of all the mess easily but steam cleaner probs best for killing the bugs depends on what you have, may be worth getting a aircon bomb or 2 as well and set them off in the car help kill and bugs that floating about inside.

    Not a bad idea on air con bomb will get some from work.

    interior been fitted back in for a week now.

    used some upolhstry foam cleaning type stuff and a brush to get rid of it. Well she did. And the whole interior was in front of radiators inside house for a week.

    that coupled with curing the leak I'm hoping it shouldn't come back

    If the seats are clean but still see seem to hold a bit of a mouldy smell Critch - get some 'white vinegar' (50p Asda) and mix it 50/50 with water. Give it a good spay with a bottle sprayer - do it on a sunny day and it'll soon dry - leaves a nice clean smell. Vinegar does not fade material like bleach does but you can try it on a corner first to make sure.
