I wash my face with honey and keep some in my shower stall. Now (not surprisingly) there's mold in the container. Can I still use this on my face? I don't want to get sme funky skin eating disease because I used honey wiht mold. Ideas?????

Can you scoop out most of the mold? If you heat honey to 170F for 5 minutes or 140F for 25 mins it'll kill microorganisms off if you want to be sure. I doubt the mold in there is that dangerous just to have on your skin, but still icky.

Honey shouldn't mold, but perhaps you got some shower water in it or you stuck your fingers in the jar. That's a perfect way to introduce bacteria.
