…that spackle molds?
I sure didn’t, until I opened up a half-empty tub of spackle to do a tiny bit of patchwork and discovered three different types of mold! I had an assortment of gray fuzz, orange splotches and black dots. I suppose since there’s some water in spackle, and it’s been humid, the little plastic tub provided the perfect breeding grounds for mold.
Fortunately, I had some wood putty (without fungus!) handy that did the trick, and the trimwork around the new back door is one step closer to completion.
