Wood laundry hamper – Generally, if you have an object of rattan furniture that is stained with mold, you would treat it with a solution of hot water and bleach. But when it comes to a basket, which is much like a baby care, you may not want to use such strong chemicals in a place where you will soon put your child. Fortunately, there is a completely green, chemical free way of cleaning mold off the wings and eliminating unpleasant smells. You need about two weeks to complete the process.
Spray the wood laundry hamper with a mixture of hot water and vinegar. The solution should be strong: use two parts of water to some vinegar. Be careful. You do not want braided bend so as not to saturate it. Spray enough to get in between the chairs and overlays in the basket design. This will kill mold and mold spores. Scrub the wood hamper down with a plastic shed brush. Use the brush to get in all angles and twists that can hold mold. Rinse the brush every 10 seconds or so to make sure you do not spread mold around. If the brush starts to appear colored, use a new one.
Wipe the wood laundry hamper. Use a dry cloth. Remove all water from the basket, so that the basket does not get malformed. You will probably notice that the fabric begins to look gray after a while from the residue. When this happens, use a new cloth. Spray the wood laundry hamper with vinegar solution again. Leave the solution on the basket. Place the basket in the sun. This is to kill the remaining mold spores. You can wait about a week after spraying the basket for the second time. During this time you may notice that part of the form has returned because it was not full the first time.
Treat the wood hamper again. Use vinegar and warm water, and scrub as thoroughly as you did the first time — even in places you do not see any mold. Wipe the basket when finished. By this time you should have eliminated all mold problems. Bleach the basket with lemon juice. Spray the basket with a solution of some lemon juice to two parts warm water and let it sit in the sun for one day. This will lighten and lighter the basket, and remove any stains from the shape or other questions. It will also include and eliminate vinegar scent so your basket smells fresh for your child.
