Re: Mildew

If its hard plastic, a simple wipe with vinegar or clorox will remove the surface mold, otherwise we like MDR Amazon's Amazing Mildew Stain Away (non chlorine) to get the stain out. Then get tea tree oil ($6-$10 for a 1-ounce bottle at your local health food store) and mix 1 tsp to a cup of water in a spray bottle. Thoroughly mist all surfaces and the mold should not come back for several months; when you notice it starting, wipe down then re-treat.
