    sadly, a hot water pipe burst in the basement and despite my best efforts some mold has formed on an antique table I was storing there. What is the most gentle cleaner I can use to remove the mold on the surface of the table? It’s very old and I don’t want to remove natural coloring of the wood. :-( :-(

    You ought to be able to remove most of it with a soft old cloth: something like an od cotton T shirt, dry. I'd then use another cloth wrung out ALMOST dry in water and wipe over it again, then dry it quickly with another cloth. Get it up into somewhere dry and let it talk to itself for a while. Then, some beeswax, very very sparingly.

    Is there some kind of finish on the table? Do you have a picture?

    If you have the option to take it outside & expose affected areas to sunlight, that is helpful too.
