International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    Hey everyone! What do you make of these white circular blotches? This is the floor of my Jeep with the carpet removed.

    Starting to rust? I don't think I've heard of mold being able to live on metal.

    Not sure! Yeah, I'm finding contradicting information about mold being about to grow on metal. Some say yes, because it's a hardy life form, but then others say no because metal is an inorganic material.

    Looks like fungus to me - the white stuff. Fungus can use iron for growth.

    The rusty brown stuff looks like rust. ;)

    We used some borax to clean mold from underneath some carpet. It seemed to work without damaging any surface.
