Our waterbed mattress has been leaking off & on for several months--hopefully the new patch will last Hubby says the mattress pad has mold on it. It is ancient and needs to be replaced but I'm not sure the best way to remove it. I'm just going to throw it out, but when I take it off should I wear a mask? I think I will put it in a big yard bag so no mold will drop off in the house. Then with hubby's help I will wash down the mattress and the sides with vinegar to help kill any other mold that may be hanging around. Does this sound like I'm going about this right? Thanks for any comments.
