Re: Mildew in the Cabin

i clean my boat with vinegar without any problem of smelling like vinegar--which, btw, is a lot better than dying of black mold.....
mold in material is the key to dispo-ing that material as the fabric will disintigrate from the mold and mildew.
pricey chemicals labelled anti mold anti mildew are very harsh on asthmatic lungs....not to mention the short term only capoacity for killing mold--they do not address spores. vinegar changes pH to acid and the spores do not grow in acid.
