I did a first wash on my rear cockpit cover. Wow, it almost looks like new. There still is a bit of mildew stains, and most is coming out, but I have some Iosoo Mold and Mildew stain remover coming. This should get rid of the rest of what I missed with the brush. Then I'll treat it with 303 Fabric water repellent.

This is the Iosso Mold and Mildew Stain remover that I'm going to try:



This just saved me a bunch of money!

i tried using comet and it made it clean and cloudy.

Then i Tried the metal polish with the buffing wheel and that made it shinny and cloudy.

what i was told is my isinglass is the automotive type and not good for UV.

my glass was perfect two years ago, kept clean and still clouded up.

I never run with it up, but it looks ugly cloudy.

to replace all three wind shield pieces is only like $150, so I was using my old stuff as a ginnie pig.

I just cleaned my Sunbrella mooring cover for the first time in 2 years. It was pretty dirty with bird droppings and various dirt on top, and mildew underneath. The Sunbrella website stressed using mild soap with no detergent to avoid removing the water repellant. It also suggested using diluted bleach for the mildew. So I used a mixture of 1/4 cup soap and 1/4 cup bleach with a gallon of water. Applied it with a soft brush, let it sit for 20 minutes and rinsed. Worked great!
