NASTY GREEN STUFF AKA MOULD – HOW TO GET RID?
Previous | 1 | Next

Thanks to the appalling weather my car hasn’t been washed for a couple of months. I’ve noticed that mould has appeared between the rubber window sills and the driver’s and passenger’s windows.

What is the best way to get rid of the mould? I was thinking THIS but it contains bleach so not sure if it’s bad for the paintwork.

Any tips? Thanks.

Kitchen spray anti-bac and an old tooth brush. I had the same problem.

Clay bar.

(check google / ebay for "Meguiars Kwik Clay" )

Thanks. ^^^

Not looking forward to clean the car in the cold this weekend. :?

Douse your car in petrol and then throw a lit match at it.

If its in a hard to reach place where you can't get clay to reach it use any cleaning product and a brush.

How about not having a sig at all?

3% hydrogen peroxide. Doesn't damage rubber either.

Contact Lens cleaner then? :lol:

I have to google to find out what exactly that is.... :D

Doesn't salt or baking soda kill these things off effectively?

Not that I entirely recommend dousing your car with salt :lol:

Like I said - contact lens cleaner. I wouldn't leave it too long on glass - they use Hydrogen Peroxide to etch glass - that would be near 100% though!

You can use Baking Soda in fridges (and even your teeth) so I should think that would be ok too!

And, have you ever had mould on your contact lenses? 8)
