I was ripening some tomatoes and they got moldy in my wicker fruit basket. How can I clean it?
The first thing to do is brush off as much of the mold as possible. Then mix a sink of warm water with half a cup of chlorine bleach. Do NOT immerse the basket, but using a nylon scrub brush dipped in the water, scrub the affected area. Once it is clean, rinse with the bleach mixture, then with fresh water. Allow the basket to dry in the sun to be sure the mold is gone.
