Topic: “Remove Mold from Clothes“, Fabrics and clothes can very easily be a convenient place for mold to grow. This is because they absorb moisture and provide a favorable place for mold to thrive.
If you place a partially wet garment in the closet such you don’t take it out for a while, it can most probably catch mold.
Moreover, wardrobes are dark, cool and enclosed places where mold are very common.
If you have a closet that is built into the wall, then simply drying clothes properly does not solve the problem.
This is because there might be a leakage or seepage due to a leakage somewhere away and the water may travel.
In this situation, the wall grows mold on it and this is transferred on to the clothes.
