    Good morning all, I received some quilt blocks from a friend and when I started to join them for a quilt, I noticed a few had some mildew on them, is there a way to remove the mildew from them other than bleach? Some of the blocks are not white but colored. Thanks for all the help/tips.

    Spray with a little water and set in the sun should help take it out. Marilyn

    I don't think you can delete them. Some folks edit the duplicates and say something like oops or duplicate post. I wouldn't worry about it. It has or will happen to all of us. :-D :-D

    it's best to leave overposts as they are. we delete the ones we find (or in this case when the member lets us know it happened). the ones we don't find are no big deal.

    it happens to everybody. :lol:
