How can I deter mold growth in my basement laundry?

My laundry room is in an old (1905 built) basement. I have a front loading washing machine and since moving here, I've been plagued with black mold growing in the soap dispensers and drawer interior. I started with keeping the drawer open in order they air dry. But still smelled the mold odor. I used the new Tide product to no avail. When I finally pulled out the entire drawer, the whole interior had a black mold coating. After cleaning it all out, I now take out the entire drawer, wipe out the dispensing drawer, hot rinse and dry the drawer and dispensing units. What will need to be done to stop this?

Hi Shelley,

It is my understanding that detergent grows mold. Since your wash room is in the basement your humidity levels are contributing to the problem too.

Check out a product manufactured...
