View Full Version : Mildew smell

I bought a used boat and put the cushions in the basement and swim platform to clean this winter. Outside I never noticed the smell from the seats. The room they are in smells musty. It is coming from the seats. Anyway to get rid of the smell?

The mildew grows in the foam. If you can stand the smell for the winter leave them to dry out and hit them with fabreeze, once you start using the boat in the spring always stand the cushions up and let them dry out.
If they still stink in the spring find a good upholstery shop and start from scratch.New foam and vinyl and then take care of them the way someone should have already done.
May warm weather come soon!
