Using Microwave to Remove Mold from Books

Is using a microwave oven for ten seconds to wipe out mold from my books harmless to the book and the oven?

I don't think it will harm the book, but I don't think it will kill the mold either.

i have read similar articles that state this works but it is not true. Damage to the books - yes.
Read this article before trying and then decide.

Id think youd have better luck with a soft bristle

i recently read that the way microwaves raelly work is by altering the molecular structure of water, which is not really the same thing as other heating methods, so there's lots of things that they are not suited for

i would first try just leaving the books in the sun, or in your locked car in the hot day. Granted this will warp your book a bit but the microwave would, too
