I had some very nasty orange and dark mildew stains from the PO. (T/A didn't cut it) I scrubbed with Bar Keeper's friend to kill the mildew and nasty stains. Then used totally awesome - 10 hours of MCOCD and my interior looks..... Well, totally awesome.

While it does a really good job cleaning the dirt and grim that can accumulate on upholstery over the years, I am not sure that it was meant to be a mildew remover, although I have had some luck removing some. Perhaps it was not as deep in the upholstery as yours may be. I know Orlando can be a very humid environment so mildew can come up almost anywhere.

I would not use it on leather - it's mostly orange oil and I believe it would dry out the leather...

Might be a stretch, but it should take the blood splatter off the motorhome.

It would fix a lot on that carpet. I don't like it on the vinyl at all (I believe it will dry it out prematurely). I used it on gelcoat in one spot once and will not use it again - not sure how to explain it but in that one spot it took out the shine.

Here are a few places I have used and will use again:

Yellowing Plastic parts
Carpet
Rims (have not had an issue but I try not to get it on the painted parts)
Aluminum and Stainless parts (BE careful not to get it on stickers.. it will ruin them)

It is amzing stuff on carpets and aluminum/stainless steel..... worry a little it will damage clearcoated metals though.

It would be a good test. No promises on keeping the mildew from coming back though. Try a small section and please report back with pics.
