My stash from DS was not stored properly and everything was wet and moldy when I found it. AAGHHH!!! My wool (thankfully only two pieces) is totally ruined, but everything seems salvegeable. I do need to restitch a few pieces of velcro on, but that's easy. I washed everything in the sanitary cycle a few times and I can't see any mold anymore. They still smell moldy though. Ladies, this is a like a half a stash of diapers, I am NOT giving up on them. What do you recommend? Boiling? Sun? Bleach? AAAGHHHH!!!!
I'm not one to often recommend bleach, but I'd be bleaching them like crazy!!!
yeah bleach to get the mold out, then crazy amount of washing to get the bleach out.

Thanks ladies. We're ALMOST there. I washed them with bleach and it made a HUGE difference. Then washed them again with Dawn to sort of strip them. They actually feel really nice and clean now and individually, they smell great. However, when I put them all away, I got a bit of a musty smell in the area where I'm storing them. I'm off to find a good detergent today and I'm going to wash them again. I'm waiting for a good day to put them in the sun, but it's been wet and gloomy for the past few weeks. I think they're going to be fine with a little more TLC.
