Subject: RE: Removing mildew from a guitar ?
I have experienced a horrific 20 year plus battle with mildew.

Only chlorine bleach seems to work....and then if a spot is missed it will return.

DUMP - the case

The mildew is in furniture, books, manuscripts, photographs, plastic covers, and transpancy slides.

An antique oaken desk has been treated five or six times with bleach....all it contains are infested...this summer - sunshine will also be added.

Thankfully, the contagion is confined within a single room containing materials moved from a highly humid local where everything became contaminated.
