My Stubben Krefeld I bought on eBay came today. Imagine my shock when I open the box, and immeditly the car is enveloped in the smell of mildew. I felt like I was a little kid sitting in my parents midwestern basement again
When I got home, I looked and some of the leather straps have white, dusty, stuffs on them...Mildew. I took vinegar and paper towels and doused the sides, and scrubbed the white spots with soaked paper towels. It is currently sitting outside in the wind, drying.
I'm an arizona kid--we have no mold, anywhere.
Anyone had moldy tack? What ended up happening? Any advice? Was just vinegar good enough? I swear for the rest of the day I've had a sore throat and can taste vinegar...Its probably in my head.
Also, when I bought it, MOLD WAS NEVER LISTED IN THE ITEM DESCRIPTION, AND NOT VISABLE IN THE PICTURES! I paid 150 plus 30 in shipping. Should I do anything about this??
