Simple green works well on mold

In my experience here in the wet NW, I find Simple Green does a great job of removing and curing mold problems. My headliner will sometimes get some mold despite my ventilation efforts, but once or twice a year I wipe it with Simple Green and it stays gone. Nice that it is not too toxic too. Worth a try. I like the residual smell better than bleach too.

I also use a liberal amount of lemon oil on all my wood surfaces, which is most of my boat interior. In addition to oiling and beautifying the wood, it is evidently deadly to mold spores. Don Casey trick.

Good luck.
