Re: Mildew in the Cabin

I think the key here is that PS is trying to find solutions for mold on fabrics in the cabin, while I think many of us have focused on mold that is on headliners or on the hull. I've had success in using a combination of vinegar and tea tree oil, along with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser (or the knock-offs of those). You just have to remember to shake the vinegar and oil, otherwise you wind up only spraying the vinegar. As mentioned elsewhere, the vinegar changes the pH, so the mold can't grow, and the tea tree oil kills the mold.

Now, ridding yourself of the mold stains, that's another story entirely!
