Re: Mildew - Is there a Nuclear Option ?

Thanks for all the replies, I'll be trying the vinegar sounds like most people agree on that. The hot light sounds like a good idea to get rid of the moisture. I spent today buffing the hull and shes pretty much ready to go in the water now. Still a few minor things to do before launch but im really happy everything has gone smoothly so far.I'm thinking Tuesday will be a good day to launch. The weather was beautiful today but supposed to rain for the next few days.Also I found mold bombs at west marine I'm going to try those also tomorrow couldn't resist when i saw them. As you can see that's my main concern right now.

Re: Mildew - Is there a Nuclear Option ?

bleach solution does not kill mold just whitens it. vinegar KILLS mold by changing the environment so it wont grow nor will the spores grow. bleach is NOT the chemical of choice. has been proven to NOT kill spores or mold. (studies for hospitals -- they though tfor a long time bleach did kill molds-it does NOT>)
