Re: Mildew in the Cabin

Are there any laundry detergents with colloidal silver? That might be a good option for the fabrics.

Re: Mildew in the Cabin

Not to be unkind, but a detergent with colloidal silver would be a good way to separate fools from their money, as the purpose of a detergent is to remove things from the laundry, and colloidal silver would only work if you let it dry on the cloth, leaving as much silver behind as possible.

Since silver is quite toxic to bacteria and not biodegradable, it is highly restricted in sewage ordinances. Far worse than phosphate, for example, so that will never happen. PPB limits are common.
