Grill Cloth Mould

Postby lightninboy » Sat Jan 20, 2007 9:31 am

I have what looks like white mould growing on the ox-blood grill cloth of my Fender CS Dual Pro.
I've wiped it off with warm soapy water a few times, but it keeps coming back.
Its getting worse. Especially after its been in its case on for a while.

I'm apprehensive about using bleach, because I believe the cloth has some plastic in it, but I'm not sure. Hey, I don't even really know if bleach will harm plastic, I just want to check it out first.
Who knows, It might even be fungus. I'm just gonna give up if it is! :lol:
Anyone have this problem, or know what to do?

I don't know much about this except I have an idea that camping shops might have a mildew treatment. My logic is that canvas gets damp, perhaps not allowed to dry out, so mildew sets in. And if there's a problem, someone will sell you (no pun intended) a solution.

Mind you, you're in Oz, do you get rain and tents at the same time?

I'll bet a bit of Lysol spray will zap it.

Car upholstery cleaning foam might also work.

You might consider trying a bit of vinegar for it's antifungal properties. BUT, I'd try it on as inconspicuous spot as possible just in case. When I was a corpsman in SE Asia, jungle rot (fungus) of the feet was a common problem. Had great success using vinegar soaks.
