Re: Gelcoat Mildew-I'm so sick of gelcoat mildew

Would think you can wash with vinegar if you are worried about safety then wax. if using liquid wax can add a drop of fungicide into wax ( buy at any paint store) . Personally have used excess teak cleaner or oxalic acid ( woodbleach) to kill mold with fresh water flush immediately after. then dry and wax/bluff with random orbiter. Inside the boat ( lockers/lazerette etc) rub down with vinegar then Arm and Hammer Clean Shower then vinegar again.. Don't have your knowledge base. Only had trouble when boat stored insde. A few sunny days seem to work miracles. Good thing you're not allergic to mold. Must be horrible.
