Removing Mold on Woven Basket?

During a walk with my granddaughter, we happened upon a beautifully shaped wicker basket along side a busy road. We decided that it was too nice to leave there to decay. However, there are some tiny mold spots all over it, and we would like to know how to remove this.

Hi, I once thought I had to throw away a basket because there were little mold spots on it from constant exposure to humidity. Unfortunately, I did toss the basket.

Bleach seems to kill mold on walls, so I would try soaking your basket in a medium to strong solution of bleach and water, as if you were doing laundry. Let it soak for at least 10 minutes and wipe it down with a cloth or paper towel to make sure the mold is gone. Then rinse and air dry.

I wish I had thought of this earlier. Hope it works for you!

I have many baskets woven of various materials: wicker, grapevine, wood, grasses etc...This works for all that have accumulated mold!
