Clean an old moldy inflatable

What is the best way to clean black mold off an inflatable which has been in storage for many years.
Thanks

Re: Clean an old moldy inflatable

Garden sprayer with a solution of hot water and a bit [1/2 c.] of bleach, and a scrub brush. Hose it off. Repeat if necessary. Be prepared for it to be clean, it may still look awful, but you can make chaps for it if you don't like the appearance...or have a set made. Such can be sewn on a normal sewing machine, you do not need a Sailrite for it.

I have also found fender cleaner (I like Clin Azur but I am sure others are just as good) to be very effective in bringing my tender back to a near-new appearance.
