How To Get Mold Off Books

How do I get a water stain off of a hardcover book. BEST OF ANSWERS TO THE CORRECT ONE..

Instructions1Put on a long-sleeved shirt and clean, protective latex gloves.2Verify that the book does not contain mold. If the book has mold on it, it is best to let a professional treat the water damaged book. Presence of mold can require wearing a respirator and can cause illness.3Absorb excess wetness using a clean sponge, cloth towel or paper towels. Each of these items should be ink-free to prevent ink transfer.4Turn on a fan to its highest speed.5Get pieces of wax paper that are bigger than the book’s pages and covers. Place the wax papers between the front and back covers and the first and last pages of the book.6Stand the book on its bottom or top edges. You should place the open book in the room so that it is not facing the fan but will reap the benefits of the air circulation. After a few hours, turn the book to stand on the opposite edge.7Change out the pieces of wax paper as they absorb moisture.8Take the book off its edges after it has dried. Though the book will have dried as much as possible, it will still retain a little moisture and feel cool. Place the book on a hard, weighty surface and put something heavy on top of the book to make sure that the pages don’t distort. Particle board and bricks will do.9Check the book for mold growth regularly.

How do you get mildew off a book.

Or at least stop it from spreading. It is yellowy/amber colored and is on the cover only, it hasn’t spread to the pages yet. This is a problem here as our climate is so hot and humid. Is there any way to prevent it?

Clove essential oil.. Not sure if it will romove it but it will kill it and stop it spreading! Just dilute it in some warm water and wipe over where ever the mould is. It stinks to start with but fades away pretty quick.You should avoid clove oil when pregnant though!

How do you get the moldy, musty smell off of books.

I have boxes of books that have a musty, moldy smell. How do I get that smell to go away? Also, a few have black mold on edges. Is there any hope for them?

Take them from the book case and air them out. Might put them outside away from the direct sun to prevent fading.

Please help,how can i clean mold off walls and could it be toxic to me.And how get musty smell out of rooms.

how can i do this myself as i cannot afford a professional,there are two rooms with mold on the walls not the whole wall put parts on the bottom,its black so i do not know if this is toxic its from dampness i guess,how do i clean it,now the whole room smells musty and everything in it my clothes books…

Get a spray bottle with bleach and spray anywhere there is black mold.Put on a mask or tye a bandanna or shirt around your nose and mouth to keep from inhaling alot of the bad stuff. keep the door shut while your in there and just spray everything with that bleach. Water down the bleach about half and half, or more bleach than water. We had it all over our bathroom and we just sprayed everywhere where you could see it with bleach to kill it. Don’t rip into anything until your ready to add dry wall and all that, you don’t want to expose any more of the mold until your ready to rebuild!Bleach will do the trick for now, I promise and after you have sprayed, I would open the windows and leave the room. AFter a while add some air fresheners in there or candles, whatever you can to hide he bleach/mold smell for now.That’s what we did and it worked just fine until someone came and tore it all out…which you could also do after you spray it and let it sit for a few hours..if you don’t mind just the board and/or holes in the walls till you can afford to get someone to re-structure it all!Good luck!!!
