Clean Up Mildew Spots

In our never ending quest to remove those pesky black mildew spots that get on our bolsters I think I have finally found something that may do it. I have previously tried about everything and even with scrubbing, it seemed like nothing worked. I bought a spray bottle of Mold Armor/Instant Mold & Mildew Stain Remover at Home Depot in the paint department (about $8, I think). www.moldarmor.com I sprayed some on the black spots and came back about 5 minutes later and they were completely gone without any rubbing. Actually, I couldn’t even see where I sprayed and I had some serious spots prior. I later hosed the bolsters down with fresh water. My bolsters look brand new. Next I will spray them with 303 Protectant. This stuff even took the black spots off that rubber strip that runs along the deck and the helm area. Always a problem.
