The Mold Will Never Go Away

Within our Mini Van there is a row of attached seats that can be taken out of the van when we want to have more space to hall things. The last time we took that row seat out, we set it in our garage against the wall and I thought it kind of set our garage off in a cozy way. It looks like a small couch and it is made of real leather. It is nice to be able to sit on it on a cool day and look at nature. The garage is an open type of garage and we set the small "couch" out I would say around four or five months ago.

Well, lately we have been having a lot of rain and it is warm and damp and guess what? The leather small "couch" is getting mold on it. It is so frustrating. I cleaned it as best I could earlier today with soap and water. I even used a little bit of that All Duty Cleaner Spray (that has bleach) in it. I used a tuffy pad and towels. It looks better now, but there is still some mold in the crevices that I will work on tomorrow.

How do you clean mold off of leather?

I have always just used saddle soap and a good cloth. Sometimes if we dont use the saddles regularly they will get a little bit on them with being kept in the barn

Pine-Sol maybe? I would think that or bleach would help, but I really don't know.

I think you are doing the right thing.

Try rinsing using warm water. Hope this helps.

I think vinegar or baking soda can be used to clean the mold.I am not is safe.

I'm sorry to hear about the mold on the leather. I really don't know how to clean the mold off. Perhaps you can google this and find out.

That's a shame. Mould is hard to get rid of, especially in small crevices, it seems to hide. Can you put the seat somewhere very dry?

Gosh that sounds like something I completely don't have a clue. My sofa isn't made of leather!

I will try that, thanks.

Maybe vinegar? And then a good scrubbing with saddle soap and a brush to get in the crevices?

I need to buy some saddle soap.
