Are you traveling with a moldy suitcase? You can clean it, but it's important that you do so correctly. Follow these steps to get rid of mold from your suitcase:
Cleaning your suitcase is important, especially if you have been traveling. Mold can grow on your suitcase if it has been sitting in a hot car or other location for an extended period of time. This mold can cause allergies and infections as well as ruin clothes and other items in your bag.
The first thing you need to do is get rid of the mold.
To do this, you can use a vinegar and water solution (1 part vinegar, 5 parts water) or baking soda and warm water. You don't want to use bleach or other harsh chemicals because they may damage some of your belongings inside the suitcase. Also, don't use a vacuum cleaner because it might suck in some of those chemicals and spread them around inside the suitcase; if there's no way around using one if there are lots of little pieces everywhere then just make sure they're turned off before opening up your dirty bag! Finally, never ever ever ever ever ever ever EVER attempt to clean anything with an open flame unless you want everything inside it burned into oblivion forevermore; even then I still wouldn't recommend doing so because people will think less highly about your intelligence afterward when they hear about how stupidly dangerous that was for everyone involved--and trust me when I say that nobody wants their life story told through negative feedback after death (or even worse: during).
After you have cleaned off the mold, it is time to clean the rest of your suitcase.
Once you have cleaned the outside of your suitcase, it's time to clean up inside of it.
To clean a suitcase with mold, follow these steps:
Remove any clothing and linens. If you can't remove it all, at least remove the affected items.
Now that you have a clean cloth and water, it's time to scrub. Start by squirting some soap on your rag, then wetting the suitcase with warm water. Next, use your brush (I recommend using an old toothbrush or small scrub brush) to gently scrub away any mold spots on the surface of the suitcase. Be sure not to damage any zippers or other parts of the bag as you go along!
To dry out the suitcase, you can use a dehumidifier. These work by pulling moisture from the air and then spitting it out at the bottom of the unit (which is why they're often placed on top of furniture). You can buy one from any hardware store or online, with prices ranging from $50 to $300 depending on size and brand.
The next step is to spray the moldy area with anti-mold spray or vinegar. Make sure you're using something that's safe for your suitcase, like this one from Amazon.
Spray on the moldy area, then let it sit for a few minutes so that it can start working its magic. The mold should come off easily at this point--if not, repeat the process until you've removed all traces of it!
How to clean a suitcase with mold
If you have a suitcase that's been collecting dust in your attic or basement, it's time to get it back into action! The first step is cleaning out all the old clothes and accessories that have been stored away over time. However, if there is any mold present on your suitcase (or any other piece of luggage) then we recommend doing some extra work before putting them back into use.
