Question about Silver Cross Balmoral Pram Carriage Stroller

Open Question

Getting the smell of mildew out of my pram. would like to solve the issue myself before seeking a restoration company.

I am trying to remove the odor of mildew from my pram. I put it in storage and when I went to get it there was a mildew problem. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to correct this problem. Also if I can't solve the issue myself how much would it cost to restore the lining and outside cover. There is a velor presently on the outside of the carriage, what should be used to replace the hood and recover the basenet. I am from the US and someone very nicely recommended someone who refurbishes carriages but I think maybe they are from the UK. I do appreciate their time in responding

We have a very foul in our mobile home, and we think it is coming from our empire heater! is there anything we can do to fix this odor

Oder doesn't seem to be electrical smell or you would know a house fire may occur. We normally know the electrical smell I'm worrying you about, and if it is that, do not use it and call a professional! It may be mildew in the unit or in the ductwork. Mildew is quit common, mold is not. No one LEGALLY can tell you it's mold unleased certified by you state or province. Mildew can grow anywhere we have a warm surface that comes in contact with a cold surface. This means uninsulated ductwork, or aged ductwork. The unit itself can also produce some mildew due to lack of maintenance. And also, water can get inside the duct for many reasons if you have cooling. If water is trapped it can produce "growing" stuff and a smell. Varmints can also cause this, either by dying inside the unit/duct or by leaving their droppings, to say it nicely. Temporary fix is what we call in Texas a Odor Cake. These are sold at the HVAC parts houses. Come in a little Tupperware style cup, and are mainly used for fire, smoke, and mildew damage to a structure. You just set em inside the airflow and the help, but don't solve the issue. If mildew is present inside the unit, have a tech out to inspect/clean. And a ultraviolet light may be needed to help control the growth. Internet U.V. Light for HVAC to study on them. Hope this helps!

My dishwasher smells like rotten eggs. Help!

Had a similar problem and started looking around inside the door. I tried to figure out how to remove the plastic air vent cover on the inside of the door (left side). I couldn't figure out how to remove it. So, we purchased a dishwasher cleaner at Lowe's ($4) and tired running it through the machine to see if it would correct the odor problem. It didn't. Somehow the "little lady" did manage to remove it (used a damn table knife of all things) twisted and popped the plastic air vent off. When it was removed she found the obvious problem, black foul smelling mold was growing under the plastic air vent that was radiating its terrible smell into the kitchen through the dishwasher door kitchen side vent . She cleaned the inside vent and the odor problem has left. I guess I'll never live this down, but I must admit that my wife solved the problem. Try this solution and see if it solves your problem. Let us know how you make out!

Our towels and clothes have a mildew/musty smell. when I spin the stainless drum inside, i can hear water sloshing around.

Towel mildew odor is transferred from the washer to towels and clothes. The washer must be cleaned first. After cleaning the washer and towels washing habits must change to stop mold smell from returning.

Washing machine mold / mildew is caused by:
#1 cause is overuse of detergents. Detergent companies are notorious for instructing to use too much detergent. Especially with soft water or when using liquid detergent no more than 1 tbsp of any detergent should be used.
#2 most common cause is using fabric softener because it's dispensed in the rinse cycle and will coat the inside of the outer tub with residue that is a food source for mold to grow.
#3 using only cold water for washing is fine but makes preventative maintenance very important. A weekly hot soak will dissolve odor-causing residue from inside your washer.
#4 not using the washer. If the clothes washer isn't used very often maintenance is especially important. If leaving for a vacation it's a good idea to clean your washer. Do a search to "remove washer odor" to read just how big the problem is. There are all natural washer cleaners that will also remove mildew odor from towels and clothing after the washer has been cleaned.

Odor in front loading duet washing machine

The following link explains how to minimize wash tub odor, and what generally can cause it:

I personally own one of these washers and have followed this same regiment since I purchased it new 9 years ago. I have never had a mildew or odor problem. Consumers that are not in the habit of using hot water very often will also run into odor and mildew problems, because detergent alone does not always kill bacteria. It is recommended that you run a "Clean Cycle" from time to time, to sanitize. Some newer models have a clean cycle added on the control panel.

NOTE: It is normal to have residual water in the drain lines and in the drain pump. If you need to clean, or check the drain pump, please follow the advice in this next link:

Debris caught in the drain pump reservoir can often cause some unwanted odors.

If the rubber door bellow develops mildew and mold, use a non abrasive pad (the little green pads are considered non-abrasive) and scrub the rubber with bleach diluted with water (50/50 mix). This will often kill and remove unwanted mold and mildew. If the door bellow becomes embedded with mold or mildew, it may have to be replaced in order to get rid of it.

If you establish and maintain a diligent routine, these washers will not mold or smell. Often what seems to be a dream appliance that is supposed to make your life easier, may actually require more attention in order to maintain it properly.

If you have questions or comments, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

LG WM1812CW washer smell

First, clean out the filter behind the access door on the lower left front of the machine. Residue left in the filter can contribute to odor issues. Second, buy a package of AhFresh or Whilaway and run a cycle with that, hot water, longest cycle. (unfortunately you do not have the sanitary cycle or the tub clean cycle on your model) Third, and most importantly, USE LESS DETERGENT. Top load washers use up to 45 gallons of water per cycle. Your machine uses 12. Use one tablespoon of HE detergent and one teaspoon of fabric softener (if you use softener) per cycle. My personal LG washer is now over 5 years old, and have only had an odor issue one time. I leave the door closed after I wash. (the tub is vented) Never have had any mold or mildew issues with my washer. Was doing several loads per day when I had 7 at home, now only doing 3 loads a week with all the kids, their spouses, and grandkid gone. Still no odor problems. Great machines if used properly. Note: the odor / mold / mildew issues are basically the same with any front load machine, regardless of brand, and most can be solved following the above advise. Good luck.

The following link provides guidance on how to maintain a front loader to keep the mold, mildew and odor away:

These are recommendations provided by the manufacturer. Most important of all, keep the rubber bellow clean and clear of debris and make sure you leave the door slightly open when not in use. This will minimize the build up of any mold or mildew and allow the tub to air out. The odor typically comes from the the residual water that stays in the wash tub under the basket and small articles of clothing getting stuck in the rubber folds of the door bellow. (I once found 17 socks stuck in a customer's washer and they wondered why it smelled so bad). NOTE: It is NORMAL to have residual water in the wash tub. If you do not routinely use a hot water setting, run the washer on a sanitary cycle about once a week, or so, with a small amount of bleach to get rid of any bacteria. Since some users conserve and only wash in cold water, they do not bacteria get rid of any bacteria inside the wash tub. I personally own one of these washers and have never had any odor or mildew problems in 8 years by following this simple advice. If you have any further questions/concerns please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Mold and smell

This is a problem common to many front load washers. Besides being very important to wile the the rubber boot down thoroughly there are a couple of products that claim to get rid of the mold and smell. I, myself, have ***** tried these but you might want to give it a shot. One of them is called Purewasher and is offered on the site Some time ago Maytag came out with a Mildew/Odor kit that they may still provede. again, I don't know for sure how well it works but it too may be worth trying

Kenmore Washer Odor

I've been selling the only available all natural washing machine and towel mold and mildew remover online at since 2006.
It's now also available at Ace, Tru Value, Hardware Hank and Do It Best hardware stores. One bottle provides 24 treatments and guarantees to remove mold, mildew, or any odor from your washer. After the washer is cleaned it also safely and easily gets rid of the mildew smell from any towel or clothing that the odor has transferred to.
The dark, moist environment of your clothes washer is the perfect place for mold and bacteria to grow. See:
We can't change that environment but we can stop the food source for them to grow buy reducing the amount of detergent used and stopping fabric softener use. Go to the blog page at to read advice on the cause of and cure for washing machine and towel odor.
