Because corks are porous, they can be a mold issue. Just make sure the water isn't standing on the corks for too long, or you could put a coat or two of polyrathane (the stuff found by the paints and stains at your local Home Depot of Lowes) on it. That will waterseal it and be completely clear. GOOD IDEA!
