So apparently a lot of the community has decided that this brown mold doesn’t spread from pony to pony, like we believed for a long time.
But I’m telling you, it spread across half a shelf of my herd. Ponies I know didn’t have it now have a spot or two, and they’re all touching each other. It’s like the mold hopped down the line, almost a dozen ponies.
I’ve used bleachwater treatment in the past to take care of this, but half of these have glitter symbols that I worry about (they’re all year one and two ponies). They’ve all been quarantined in plastic baggies for a while now and I’m finally bringing my herd out of storage, so I want to clean these girls up.
I’ve found a lot of mixed things about brown mold in the past couple months (and yes I’ve checked the Pony Restoration Project as well), so what methods have you successfully used to stop this in ponies with glitter symbols?

Possibly, because the room they used to be in had bad mold behind a bookcase. They’ve all since been removed from the environment. I still suspect it spreads though, because only this line of ponies were affected :\
lumpiest-spaceprincess answered: Is there any way to spot treat with the bleach treatment? Maybe soak a cotton pad in it and put it over the problem area.
That’s what I’m wondering! I’m not sure how much the mold is in the rest of the pony, but just not showing discoloration.
what i’ve found i needed to do was remove their heads and clean their insides out thoroughly with bleach. that can help stop the spread if you notice it continues even after you’ve cleaned the outsides meticulously.
i’ve also had some luck with the zit-cream spot treatment of mold and other discoloration, but as a warning this works mostly only on white or very light ponies, as it can discolor the plastic in other colors. it worked well on my princess tiffany and gingerbread. ooph i really need to clean my herd up. they’ve gotten a little dusty.
