|Wear a mask or respirator while cleaning your gourd. The mold that collects over the drying time can cause lung problems.
You can put your gourds in a weak solution of water and bleach for about 20 minutes to soften the outer shell mold and skin then use a choreboy to scrub over the gourd to take off the mold and loose skin. There will always be mottling on your gourd after you clean it..this gives it character and depth if you stain it or cover it with a polyeurathane.
I will be doing a complete article before long to go with the series of articles on gourds I have started.
