Default Cleaning Black Mold

I have this black mold on the leaning post. What is a safe way to get it out without damaging the upholstery ?

Magic Eraser and some decent soap.

Fantastik and magic eraser if soap doesn't cut it.

Tilex and magic eraser if all else fails.

Rinse VERY THOROUGHLY

Make it super-easy, Starbrite's Mildew Stain Remover. Spray on, wait, hose off, stuff disappears and the threads and marine vinyl are not harmed. I will never be without the stuff.

Magic Eraser is an abrasive so I would try Marine mold and mildew remover first. It should get most of the stain out, then let it get a good amount of sun.

Once cleaned it needs a good protectant like 303.

Tilex works great for removing mold and mildew stains out of vinal, starboard, non skid, and bilges. Just make sure to follow up with 303 vinal protector after using tilex.

The products above will work. Bleach does not..

Once clean, treat with a vinyl preservative.

The issue is getting it all. If you get it all, it won't regrow.

Many times the mold has migrated into the foam....This can be a major problem in trying to eradicate it. You may need to check the foam itself for infestation.

NO magic erasors! Its an abrasive, I cant believe people still use them. Spray 9 and a pressure washer should do it.
