Forums > Living in Kunming > How to get rid of mildew odor?

Good to know, I will check at Metro. I'm leery of using bleach as most of the clothes are cotton in various colors -- I will try that as a last resort before throwing them away if nothing else works.

Forums > Living in Kunming > How to get rid of mildew odor?

Some clothes that I recently took out of storage have a really stubborn mildew odor, worse than I have encountered in any other country/city. Remedies I have tried so far without success include: repeated washing with extra detergent, boiling water, white vinegar (the 9 kind sold at corner grocery shops), and extended exposure to sunlight.


1) Has anyone been able to get rid of this type of smell here, and if so how?

2) Has anyone found borax, ammonia water, or OxiClean around town?

Forums > Living in Kunming > Main Bank of China branch open?

Does anyone happen to know if the Bank of China central branch at Beijing Lu & Renmin Lu is open this week?

I was hoping to wire funds abroad before the weekend. Nobody picked up on their main phone line so I'm guessing they're on vacation, but any definite info would be helpful.

"Pain campagnard" (or more commonly "pain de campagne") is a specific name used by bakeries in France for a particular type of bread. Just calling something "country bread" in English could mean anything.
