It’s always a bummer when rain gets into your car - but it happens. The best way to get rid of mold inside your car is to clean the area thoroughly first with a vacuum then use white vinegar mixed with water to kill off the mold spores.
Spray a generous amount on the moldy areas and allow it to sit for about 20 minutes. Make sure that you have good air ventilation throughout this process and for a few hours afterward.
Once the area is dry, pour baking soda over the area and vacuum it away to remove any remaining smells.
While you let your car air out, take a moment to check out the Jerry app and find out how much you can save on your car insurance premium.
