    How do you Destroy old car mold

    Anyone know the best way to get rid of this ****? My garage was moist last year and this grew on my car , I have seen it before on other old cars , it seems to grow where dirt and old armour all was? It's obviously some kind of mold , I believe this is what may have messes up my engine compartment paint job as well Click image for larger version.

    I use Moldcontrol by concrobium in the house, but you should read up on it before you use it in the car. It isn't a traditional poison. It's kinda like disolved concrete. When it dries out it shinks or something like that and bursts all the cells in stuff that grows. Might really mess up car stuff, or maybe not, I don't know. It has worked great for me in my bathroom that doesn't have a vent fan and used to get dots on the walls and ceiling. Fan to be installed later...

    I'll bet grandma's trick would work. Vinegar and water. Seems to clean and kill mold on most everything else without harming the material.

    Vinegar sounds like a good idea. I use it for all kinds of stuff. Didn't know about mold, though.
