Mold? Fungus? Anyone know what this stuff is? Answered
I have a small fire safe I use for storing documents and backup drives. Yesterday I opened it to find this stuff growing on the inside. It has a crunchy outer texture that crumbles if you touch it, and a bit of liquid inside. It wasn't there two months ago when I last opened the safe, and I've never had problems with it in the year I've owned the safe. I have moisture absorbers inside, and live in a dry climate. Any ideas what this could be, and whether I can just wipe it down with cleaner or need to take stronger measure? Thanks.
