If you've ever found a "fuzzy" spot on your clothes that won't go away, it's likely caused by fungus. If you're wondering what is this fuzzy growth and how do I get rid of it, we've got some good news: You can use baking soda, vinegar and lemon juice to get rid of the mold spores that are causing this problem. But first things first...
Fungus is a common problem in homes. It can grow on almost any surface, including clothing, shoes and carpets as well as books and paper. Fungus spores are spread through the air and often found in damp areas of your home such as basements and bathrooms.
If you notice mold growing on your clothes it's important to remove it quickly before it spreads further into the fabric or causes damage to other items in the laundry pile (like towels!).
The fungus that causes the growth is called mold. It's not caused by dirt or bad laundry habits, but rather by mold spores in the air that are present even when you think your clothes are clean.
Mold spores can stick to fabrics and cause discoloration over time--and they're everywhere! Even if your clothes look clean, it's possible for them to have been contaminated with these microscopic particles during their previous use and storage.
Even if you've washed and dried them recently, there could be some lingering fungus lurking on them (the heat from drying really doesn't kill everything).
Mold spores are everywhere. They're in the air we breathe and they're on our clothes, even if you can't see them.
Mold spores are so small that they float through the atmosphere like dust particles, getting into everything from homes to cars to workplaces. When mold spores land on an item of clothing or other fabric (like carpeting), they can begin growing into colonies if conditions are right for them--and if those conditions aren't controlled by an expert cleaner who knows how to handle these situations professionally--they'll spread quickly through your home or office building as well!
This is because machine-made fabrics are more likely to collect mold spores than natural fibers. Natural fibers have a higher moisture content and are less likely to collect mold spores, so they are better at repelling them. Also, machine-made fabrics are more likely to be treated with chemicals that prevent mold growth.
If you're wondering what's worse than mold growing on your clothes, it's the fact that it can also breed in your dryer vent! Mold spores are everywhere and they float through the air all around us. If these spores land on something damp like clothing or towels, they will begin to grow into colonies of fungus that could potentially damage fabrics.
This is why it's important to keep an eye on how often you clean out your lint trap--and if needed, hire someone who specializes in cleaning out dryer vents (or do it yourself). You should also use baking soda when cleaning out any vents so as not to harm any delicate parts inside them with harsh chemicals or tools that might damage them by accident while trying too hard!
To prevent mold from growing on clothing, you should use baking soda, vinegar and lemon juice as natural cleaners instead of harsh chemicals. Throw out any clothes that are beyond repair and wash your clothes in hot water with an extra rinse cycle. Dry them on high heat for the best results. Clean your dryer lint trap every time you use it!
If you want to keep fungus from forming on your clothes, use baking soda, vinegar and lemon juice as natural cleaners instead of harsh chemicals. A good rule of thumb is to wash all of your clothing in hot water and dry it on the highest heat setting possible. If you have any clothes that are beyond repair (like those with holes), throw them out immediately so that they don't spread any further damage or disease around your house!
If you're tired of dealing with moldy clothes and want to find a solution, we have good news: You can stop this problem in its tracks with just a few simple steps. First off, make sure that your machine is clean by running an empty cycle with bleach or white vinegar (not detergent). Next up: toss any clothes that are beyond repair into the trash! Finally--and most importantly--use baking soda as an all-purpose cleaner instead of harsh chemicals like chlorine bleach or ammonia. This way, you'll not only keep fungus from forming on new items but also reduce their environmental impact too!
