Hi Rakhi, I believe the scientific name for black mold is "STACHYBOTYS CHARTARUM. Very dangerous mold so be careful. You didn't mention if you have any in your home or where the mold on your cotton fabrics came from but you should rid yourself of the problem ASAP. Black mold is easily airborn and can cause severe lung and respiratory problems. If it's in your house, you really need to have it gone. You might want to get a professional cleaner in. Just be careful.
