    I have chill water AC in my apt. Ive had this Eden cab, about 4 years. Those grey spots you see on it, are mold. None of my other cabs do this. Why this one ?

    You think is from the funk, that comes out of the speaker ?

    first off, thats the coolest finish I've ever seen on a Washburn.

    As far as why this cabinet? who knows....

    as far as cleaning it: There's a hoover handheld wet/dry vac I used on a buddy's Schoreder that kept getting mold... worked miracles.. then we sprayed it down with that water / stain repellent you buy in the shoe department.... mold-free for 8 months now.. give it a shot!

    A 2:1 mixture of warm water and vinegar gently scrubbed in with a scrubbing brush will do it... It works even better if you can let it dry outside in the sun. Just make sure not to over-saturate it.

    You know if memory serves me correctly, I think grooveguru had mold problems with some Eden cabs, XLT-410's I think.

    I use turtle wax carpet cleaner in my car and it works wonders. It's a foam so it won't get the carpet super wet. Just a thought.

    Im just now getting this done. Im doing it tommorow. Got the vineger.
    That mold is still growing. I think once it gets a foot hold, it never stops. Hopefully this will work.

    Forget the cab, how do you keep that table clean? And is that Mesa sitting under a plant that gets watered? The cab looks fine to me.

    Ugh..........that auto carpet shampoo is the first thing that came to mind but the vinegar sounds good in that you need something that will kill the mold to keep it from coming back if possible. Maybe sort of Massingale fresher upper too. I've got a gig bag that does the same thing - only in the summer time with humidity up. I don't use it anyway so it doesn't matter.

    1/4 dishsoap, 1/4 ammonia, 1/2 water. Go easy, a little dap 'l do ya, foams up like crazy. Brush it in with a brush, go after with plain water. Clean it but don't soak it, let dry in sun or other dry (air-conditioned) environment. The stuff will foam up so much you can stir it in a bowl first and just use the foam to clean with. The water/vinegar solution also works well on mold and doesn't foam up like this recipe which is for thorough, deep carpet cleaning.
