    The power sockets on the wall were not of NZ standard type but were U.S.A. type ones.

    My parents use to paste on a mold inhibitor on the walls, in early 70's. Some of you's might recall the name?

    Borax ?
    The Anti Mold paint works really well. No mold in the areas Ive painted with it . The plan is to paint as much of my house with it as possible.
    Whats goin on (mold wise) behind the gib is anyones guess.

    Some surfaces are party time for mold , some particle board (imported crap bookcases, shelves etc) is just a mold haven.
    You pull some things out of storage and .... garrh .

    The correct spelling is "mould". "Mold" is the American spelling and their English is atrocious!

    Yeah, blame Noah Webster for that. His stated intent when compiling his dictionary was to sabotage English.

    He was a bit late, the poms have been doing that continuously, starting 7th July 1723 BC at 4:30pm until some future date when they may have run out of bits to shred, or poms.
