It is cooking here and the humidity is crazy. All the turning blanks that I have stored are starting to mold and mold hard:furious:. None of them are sitting against each other and I have a fan running to get a bit of air movement. What am I supposed to do?

If they are where you can spray, about 1.5 cups of bleach to a gallon of water should kill it. It is not strong enough to penetrate the wood and damage it, just a light misting to kill the surface mold should do.
I have a cedar sided home and use it in some shaded areas as needed but I do rinse it off in about 1 minute so it doesn't bleach the color out. I wouldn't bother to rinse wood you are going to turn.
