    My 2 Eden carpeted cabinets got wet on the bottom when I got water in my garage. And ever since I've had a nasty case of mold growing on them. I can clean it off and spray them with Lysol but whenever the weather gets damp the mold comes right back. I need something that will take care of this once and for all. Any ideas on how to cure this?

    Mix 2 parts vinegar, 1 part warm water. Apply to the affected area and allow to dry in open air with light, sunlight works best IMO. Repeat as necessary. Vinegar really is the best cleaner for all non-wood products (too drying for most woods, but your cabs should be fine) and fungi don't stand a chance against it. Streak-free glass, mold-free tile, etc. Basically anywhere you might use Windex, etc. etc. etc. :smug:

    If you have any sort of a Benavente 5, I'm certainly interested! ;)

    Did the Lull reacquaint itself nicely to you, or has it moved on to other pastures? :cool:
