Anyone got a sure fire way to remove black mildew from canvas (acrylic) skirting or biminis? The mildew we are running across is very much like paint it's so ingrained into the fabric. I'm leary about using bleach. Any advice on this?

Alan,
     I have successfully used a product called "Mean Green Mildew Stain Remover".  This product DOES contain bleach.  While I have usually used this on more solid painted/varnished surfaces, it worked fine on a fabric saloon sofa seat.
     I would try it first on a portion of your fabric that will not be seen if it does manage to discolor your fabric.

Thanks Dave, I'll look for it and try it out.

Dave,

 

 You might spot check an area using hydrogen peroxide, no phosphates in that chemical mixture. Mildew loves phosphates, it can eat them and grow worse, most bleach, detergents, etc. contain those, so that might make the problem worse latter on. I believe simple green products are "ammoniated" which basically means what it sounds like, made from ammonia, that's cool, just don't mix with or use around something that contains bleach, since that would release a nasty gas.

 Really, you've got 2 and a half choices, 1-ammonia, 2-bleach, or 2 1/2- hydrogen peroxide, which is really another oxidizer like bleach, (hence the 1/2) it's just somewhat safer to work with and degrades quickly, and much friendlier to the ocean/water.

 I have read, but can't personally confirm, that you can treat clean marine fabric against mildew by soaking in a 50% vinegar solution for 20 minutes or so. Just fyi- proceed with caution!

 Just my 2-cents worth, but I'm no expert in this regard. Just throwing out ideas...Your mileage may vary, objects in mirror are closer than they appear, etc.

Thanks for the info. I'll get to one of these days. I've joined a small yacht club (my first)at Deep Bay. Annual fees very reasonable and people are very friendly. For the first time I used reciprocal moorage privilage that the club has and saved a pile of coin.
I definitely recommend joining a yacht club.

On another topic I contacted the people at Maxwell Winch for a manual for my 1980 vintage Nilsson-Maxwell winch. The nice guy at Maxwell arranged for me to be sent a PDF file with the info within a few days of me sending a photo. Great service from
these folks.
