Back again with another mold issue (smfh), this time its my Gaerne GP-1 boots. I neglected to clean these when I put them in the coat closet last year and never gave it a second thought. They are now covered in mold on both the leather outside and mesh lining on the inside. My concern is that with both of these areas being porous surfaces a poor or unsuccessful cleaning will result in mold spreading to the leg openings of my race suit. One suggestion I received from a leather shop was to brush off the leather to remove the dirt and mold, then spray them with de-salter and seal them in plastic bags for a day followed by a thorough shampoo and conditioning. Is this something I should bother cleaning or should I just replace the boots altogether. They aren't in bad shape and have only been crashed in once with minimal damage. Any other cleaning suggestions would be helpful and appreciated!
