    Default Canvas Sails & Mildew Stains

    How do you remove mildew stains from canvas sails?

    The real question is, how do you remove mildew stains from canvas sails, without destroying the canvas!?

    There is a product available down here that supposedly does it. I have not tried it on the canvas sails yet but I want to try it on the boat cover. Once I try it I will post more info. But it might be one of those things that we can buy in Mexico that you can't buy up in the usa. Kinda like DDT. Yes you can still buy DDT down here.

    I've never tried, but I seem to remember something about lemon juice and sunlight. At least it won't hurt the cloth.
