Mildew Removal

Just pulled my boat out of winter storage and found mildew growing on the seats - any idea how best to remove it easily?

303 Vinyl cleaner then apply 303 Aerospace Protectant.

Totally awesome cleaner is good too. Follow either up with Aerospace protectant.

Lots of folks on this forum love and praise LA's Totally Awesome, and I have also found great success with Mean Green Cleaner from Dollar General. If you use either of these, just be sure to rinse very well and then treat the seats with 303 Protectant.

Good luck

For the tough spots, the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser's work great. Those have taken out mildew spots that nothing else could budge. Just be careful around your stitching.

Magic eraser is equivalent to micro sandpaper

TA will get the surface mildew out just fine but if it is worse than that, you may need to try something a little more harsh that will kill the mildew and keep it from coming back.

bcd - I agree that the Magic Eraser's are micro-abrasive. But if I have the choice of a big ugly bug or mildew stain versus a clean seat, no brainer for me. I just use them when nothing else works.
