Removing mould stains
I have an old needlepoint canvas I purchased at a tag sale as part of a large box of stitching goodies that got damp in a basement. It has mouldy spots on it.
Since I have little invested in it, I decided to try and restore it myself.
It is a hand painted piece and my dry cleaner refused to touch it even though I signed a waiver in case of possible damage!
I have so far attempted to clean it with Woolite, Dawn dish soap, and Fabreeze. The stains are now light and no longer
smell, but I am still leery of working the canvas for fear the spots may re-surface the way mould does on a painted wall.
Does anyone have any advice?
Tip Also, I have always relied on the blood/saliva combo and it has always worked. But it only works when both items are from the same person. My kids used to get a kick out me having them spit on the knees of their pants to clean them after bandaging their knees from a tumble. :>)
