Re: [BKARTS] cleaning mold

Since I have helped in presenting workshops on preventing mold and
mildew for our archives group: I can recommend that every one read

The only safe and effective way to keep it from coming back is to modify the environment which contributed to the development of mold.
Get the books into a low humidity environment, far away from other
non-affected books.
Then read Section IIIB in above booklet. Protect yourself - use a mask,
or respirator; This is important!
Don't use any household chemicals.

Hope this helps everyone.
Mold/mildew after hurricanes and floods are a way of life around here, unfortunately...
