It's all bleach.

Quote:

Of the 14 cleaners tested, a half-dozen of them use sodium hypochlorite (bleach) as an active ingredient: Marykate Mildew Stain Remover, Boat Armor Mildew Stain Remover, 3M Marine Mildew Stain Remover, Star brite Mildew Stain Remover, Klean-Strip Mildew Stain Remover, and Sudbury Mildew Cleaner & Stain Remover. The amount of bleach used varies from product to product. For instance, Klean-Strip is 96 percent sodium hypochlorite, and Boat Armor has 4.9 percent of the active ingredient, compared to the 5 percent found in household bleach.

Bleach-based products should never be used on nylon fabric or stitching. They will weaken the material. (See "Mildew Offense and Defense," facing page.)

The MSDS for it.
