I found a water leak behind my refrigerator. It was about 3 feet wide a 1 foot high. I pulled the drywall and I'm running a blower and dehumidifier in the kitchen.

The studs have some mold on them. Is there a commercial product that I should use to clean the studs? Should I just spray it on, or should I wipe or scrub it? I've seen others paint the studs when treating. Is this a special paint?

Bleach and water in a spray bottle (anywhere from 10 to 25 percent bleach to water ratio) will kill mold. Watch the over-spray and wear old clothes.
