EverClean Dry Cleaners

Removing mold / mildew from machine-washable items

  • If garments are still wet, lay in the sun to dry. Dry heat and light help to kill mold. If your item is labeled dry clean only, take it to a cleaner after it is dry.
  • If your item is washable, fill washing machine with warm water and regular amount of detergent. Add ½ cup Borax and let mildewed garments soak in this solution for up to four hours.
  • Run regular wash cycle.
  • If garments still show signs of mildew, do not put in dryer. Apply a mixture of lemon juice and salt to mildew spots and dry in sunlight.
  • Machine wash again.
