that's pretty crafty....

Places like Home Depot and Lowes have mold and mildew remediation products in spray bottles that you use to treat existing mold, and it also helps keep it from coming back. It's usually in the paint or cleaning supplies departments. I've used it on the vinyl in our boat and it seems to help prevent it from coming back. It might be worth a try.
