mildew on colored bedsheets

Posted by A Mapp on December 31st, 1997 12:09 AM

Dear Bob,
I pulled out some mauve sheets and placed on my daughter's bed when at my dismay discovered there were mildew stains on the fitted sheet. I am assuming when the sheets got pitched down the laundry shoot someone must have also thrown a bath towel behind it. Since the wash was done some days later, it was not discovered. Normally, I would just treat it with household bleach and move on. However I cannot do this without the fear of bleaching the color out of the sheet. I think I heard of using lemon juice and placing the cloth in the sun was one solution. However I am living in Ohio and right now as I speak we are in the middle of a winter snow storm and besides I may not see sun again until May. What are your suggestions?
