Barbara – Didn’t Mary-Lou Florian’s extensive research on mold show that isopropyl was more effective at killing conidia – making them non-viable -than ethanol? If the mold is in a passive state, there is nothing to “kill”. Does the literature someplace suggest spraying things as a matter of course? What’s the point?
