Damp rid is really popular here as a common closet Accessory and is out of stock everywhere.

Right now I got all windows open and fans full blast. I 've got all the drawers and cabinets opened. My house is facing into the trade winds so as long as the air is moving, it will dry out in a day or three. There are specific algaes and mildews that like wood surfaces so some vinegar wipeing will happen as well. I have no drywall in my house so toxic mold is not a big risk for me. I am going to have a mass laundry washing to keep rusty mold at bay. It likes to eat fabric and the stains it leaves rarely come out.

I do have some sea salt drawing out moisture in the kitchen and it's going well. Sea salt is very cheap as one would imagine.

Can't really stop books from getting a bit moldy here without a climate controlled environment. Most people this side of the island don't have airconditioner. We worry more about the termites eating our books.

Mr kitty is damp too though. I don't think cats mold that quickly.

Right now the weather is bright and cloudy.

You are a trooper lady !

You are certainly doing all that can be done.

I am praying for those winds to dry you out soon my dear.

Big hugs to you! Lol, thank goodness Kitty’s don’t mould, that would be a mess now meow... :)

I am just super happy y’all are safe ! Phew...

Thank you and much aloha. We were very prepared. The only problem we had was that we started to get bored.

Old plantation houses are very sturdy. New builds can't weather the everything this island throws at you on a regular basis.
