View Full Version : Mildew on seats

02-01-2006, 03:06 PM
What's up everyone, I just bought an 04' Outback with 31hrs on it for a heck of a price. The only imperfection on this boat is that some of the seats have little mildew spots on them that I can't seem to get off no matter what I use if anyone knows of anything to take these spots off please let me know. They are wearing me out. Thanks alot.

You might try Magic Eraser's. They work very good.

The dealer told me that suntan lotion could stain the seats are you sure it couldnt be something like that?

The magic eraser works very well. You have to be careful, especially with cleaners with bleach ( which cleans the mildew very well) because it will dry the vinyl from the inside out. Whatever you use I would strongly suggest you use 303 to treat the cushions afterwards.

If you haven't gotten out the mildew yet try soft scrub with bleach. It will kill the mildew and make your seats look brand new. Be sure to do your best to keep the soft scrub off the stitching. Over time it will eat it away. Not to worry I use it all the time and my seats are in excellent condition. If the mildew is stubborn just let it sit for awhile and rinse it off. Come back the next day and the mildew will be gone. Normal soft scrub works great with a brush to clean up really soiled seat.
