Removing mildew can be
you practice patience and do a little testing first. Mildew is mold
that is growing in fabric. Mildew is eating the fabric so if the mildew
has been there for a while it may be too late to remove it without
leaving a noticable stain.
In order to remove mildew I have used Clorox 2 for colors. What I do is
take a portion of the material that is hidden such as a shirt tail,
under the cushions of a sofa and so forth. I spread a little bit of the
Clorox 2 on with a cotton swab and rub it in. I allow it to sit for a
few minutes, then I use a wet rag and 'rinse' the spot. I let the
material dry thoroughly and see if the color stayed fast.
If the color is not ruined, I then begin the same process on the
mildew. For a shirt I rub it in for several minutes with my fingers.
Then I let it set for a for about 10 minutes. Then I thoroughly rinse
the area with cold water. I allow it to air dry to be sure I got
everything. If there is still mildew I repeat. I have had to do it up
to three times.
As I mentioned though, sometimes the mildew has had time to damage the
material and you will never be able to get rid of the mark completely,
but the Clorox 2 will kill what mildew was still alive in that area.
