Topic - Mouldy old-fashioned rope

humptydumpty - on 22 Feb 2014
Not really climbing gear, but...I have a trapeze in my garden with some kind of old-fashioned-type rope. Recently it looks like it's got mould growing on it (little black dots).

Hopefully this photo gives an idea:

Is there a simple way to clean mould off (or out of?) ropes?

I assume it will affect the strength, as the mould may be eating the rope fibre; does that seem likely?
