Mold on textiles

I am a third year student in the Conservation and Restoration course
in the University of Lincoln. I am currently researching the
cleaning methods of mouldy textiles for my dissertation.

This study aims (1) to investigate the fungal deterioration of
textiles and (2) to seek effective cleaning methods for fungal stain
through the experimental work.

Since I am non-specialist in textile conservation, I would like to
ask several questions about the interventive treatment of fungal
deteriorated textiles.

    What method (techniques, equipment, detergents, chemicals, any
    other conservation materials) do you use for cleaning mould on
    textiles and removing stains?


    Are there other possible options?

    What are pros and cons of that treatment from your ethical point
    of view?

If there are specific examples, I would be really grateful.

Please reply to me by e-mail to rika.trombone<-at->googlemail<.>com before
28 December 2012 so that I can contact individually for more
