black mildew spots off ultrasuede (fawn coloured)?
I have never had black mildew spots, but can report that Ultrasuede washes like a dream. It does not shrink, all stains and marks I have had (including biro) come off easily. It is colourfast and comes up looking like new. I soak our settee covers in Vanish for colours (also known as Oxyclean or Napisan), rinse well and line dry. Mildew may well wash out easily also.
If you need to spot clean, vinegar works well on mildew and is a mild cleaner (test on a bit of fabric
not usually visible first). Bleach is likely to damage the fabric
