Has anyone experienced mildew growing on your restored radio cabinet. I was given a FADA 366C that had initially a good bit of mold or mildew on the bottom of the cabinet. There was obvious water damage. After stripping, sanding, replacing some veneer and refinishing with Danish Oil two summers ago, I found a lot of mildew on the lower portion of the cabinet just yesterday. The radio is in an air conditioned family room and not in a basement although there has been a lot of rain this summer. Is it possible this stuff survived the refinishing process and what can I do to kill it without destroying the finish? I have read methods on the net but I,m worried about putting bleach, vinegar or hydrogen peroxide on the wood.
