I've just had to chuck out a coat, it was nearly 70 years old.... I guess I hung it up damp because mould has got to it. Nothing else hanging near it seems effected, but I'll wash the entire contents of the rail anyway. I did try brushing the mould off, with a view to getting it dry cleaned but it also seems to have been got at by moths as well. Even though it had cedar balls in the pockets, it started to fall to bits as I brushed it. Could the moth larvae of caused the damp and thus the mould? Sorry to see it go after all the years it's spent with me (no not all the 70 years of it's life).

Pausing only to subscribe to Make Magazine.. I rush off on another job. This getting up early and going swimming is giving me lots of energy.
