    what cleans mold?

    My skis have sat for 2 years and have grown mold on them I washed them off and it came right off the panels but i can't get into the knooks here and there with a rag. What can i spray on it? Also my seats have it on them as well. I scrubbed them with simple green but it won't remove the black mold stuck on it.

    Very careful spray of clorox cleanup? Or maybe distilled vinegar?

    Hi jaime. I just bought the stuff you mentioned. I scrubbed the seats for about 20 minutes straight with that stuff at full strength. It did not remove it. It lightened it up slightly but that's all. I need to use bleach but for obvious reasons i cannot. The mold is deep into the vinyl and plastic on the boat.

    You can spay the inside of the hull with simplegreen staight up. It works great I even spay down my engine compartment on y truck with it. Keep it away from the electiral connectors though. Don't know what it would do to them. I usually cover the altrnators and coil packs.........

    I bleached the inside of the hull when i pulled the motor. That part was all good. I found this stuff after searching for a few hours at different stores called starbrite. It took the mold right off like bleach does. After cleaning the ski and almost running out of the solution i decided to see if it was sold in gallons jugs since it worked so great. After doing some research i come to find out the main ingredient is guess what.....bleach! So i paid 15 bucks for watered down bleach You just should not be able to to relabel a product and call it something else. This just isn't right but i guess it's my fault for not reading the ingredients. At first i was going to use bleach but was hesistant that it would ruin the colors. I didn't know that if you water it down drastically and let it sit for 10 minutes that it was mild enough to do the job.

    Holy crap!!! I can't believe it.

    That stuff has done wonders for me in the past, especially on my vinyl siding.

    Sorry about suggesting something that didn't work.
