    Default Upcycling chair - strange looking white stuff

    Just wondering if anyone can help. Found some chairs in an alleyway near my home, and planning to do them up. The only thing is one of them has this weird white stuff on it that looks like mould (see photo). It was raining a lot when I found them! Just wondered if anyone had any idea what that might be, and whether it's dangerous at all? (as they were ok looking chairs I was just conscious of asbestos and all that jazz).

    Thanks in advance!

    It might just be water damage combined with age.

    Could be mould, but I highly doubt it. Try scrubbing it with some washing up liquid then polish with furniture polish once it is completely dry.
