Mold

It has been asked, "so what, exactly, are you supposed to use on mold?", which provides a perfect opportunity to kick off my new series of nifty disaster recovery tips, Hints from Slimbolala.

Though, at this point, I know more about mold than any layperson should have to, I'm still far from being an expert. I will simply tell you that in our case it involves removing all of the walls, ventilating everything for several days until it reaches 20% moisture capacity, and treating everything with a bleach solution and then a moldicide.

I do have it on a good authority from Harvard mold experts (seriously, I've been hanging out with some weird folks recently) that less severe cases can sometimes be treated with a 10% bleach solution. Non-porous items such as plates may simply need to be washed in soapy water.

Fascinating, huh? So, put that in your pipe and smoke it (no actually don't - smoking mold is very bad for your health).

Ask and ye shall receive.

    hey man, i am looking for ways to neutralize the bad effects of mold such as those that could cause lung infections. Is there any ways? The mold is on plants that i plan to smoke and i know i should toss them, but they represent a significant investment so i am desparate to find a way to make them "safe".

    Any ideas or advice would be GREATLY appreciated, thanks!

    if it cannot be salvaged, then i will understand, but looking for expert opinons in regards to this, thanks again.

    ;)
