    Introduction

    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.

    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.

    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).

    Next, you will want to clean off the rest of your suitcase.

    After you have cleaned off the mold, it is time to clean the rest of your suitcase.

    • Use a cloth to wipe down the outside of your suitcase.
    • If you have an old suitcase, you may want to replace it with a new one.

    After this, it's time to clean up inside the suitcase.

    Once you have cleaned the outside of your suitcase, it's time to clean up inside of it.

    • Use a damp cloth to wipe down all surfaces in your suitcase. You can also use a vacuum if there is dirt or dust on any part of the interior lining of your luggage.
    • Be careful not to damage this lining by pushing too hard with either tool!

    Finally, remove any residual moisture from your suitcase in order to prevent future mold growth.

    • Use a hair dryer to remove any residual moisture from your suitcase.
    • Leave the suitcase open to air out overnight.
    • If you don't have a hair dryer, leave the suitcase open in a well ventilated area until all traces of moisture have been removed from its insides. You can also speed up this process by placing it near an electric fan for several hours or overnight.

    You can clean a suitcase with mold if you follow these steps

    To clean a suitcase with mold, follow these steps:

    • Clean the outside of your suitcase. Use an all-purpose cleaner or a mixture of water and vinegar to wipe down the surface of your luggage.
    • Clean inside of your suitcase. Remove any loose dirt or debris from its insides, which will help prevent mold growth in future trips if left behind in your bag's nooks and crannies. To do this, use another vacuum attachment that has wider suction capabilities than what you used on its exterior (such as one designed specifically for cleaning upholstery). The goal here is not just removing visible particles but also getting into every corner so that nothing remains behind when drying out afterwards--this will help keep moisture from being trapped inside once travel starts again!

    Remove any clothing and linens

    Remove any clothing and linens. If you can't remove it all, at least remove the affected items.

    • Wash your suitcase with hot water and detergent in a washing machine on a gentle cycle. Make sure to use warm water so mold does not spread further than it already has.
    • When you are finished cleaning your suitcase, dry it in an oven set at 250 degrees Fahrenheit for one hour or until completely dry before placing back into storage.

    Scrub with a brush like an old toothbrush

    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!

    Use a dehumidifier to dry it out

    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.

    Spray with anti-mold spray or vinegar

    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!

    Cleaning a suitcase with mold is easier than you think.

    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.

    Once again: how do I clean my suitcase?

    Conclusion

    If you follow these steps, it should be easy to clean your suitcase with mold.
