  • mold/mildew...

    What's the best way to remove really stubborn mold from vinyl seats and steering wheel? Bleach has helped lighten it up but it's still pretty ugly. Can anybody give me some ideas to try? Thanks in advance!

    Re: mold/mildew...

    bleach is really bad for vinyl and the threading used to hold everything together. the thread will dry out and panels will start to pull apart.

    i use mr clean magic erasers. some time in the sun after that usually fades whatever is left. i follow the erasers with 303 uv protectant.
