Mouldy Tent

Postby dan_vasey » Tue Aug 23, 2016 7:18 pm

Not sure where to post this, so just looking to get some help..

After returning from an event I was rather displeased to find my A-frame canvas covered in mould after a leakage in the lockup.
I'm cautious to approach it for fear that any typical bleach products (or whatever, I can't say I've had to do battle with mold before...) would do damage to the material.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

Milton, the liquid used to clean babies' bottles, is very good at treating mould on tents. We've used it successfully several times.

if you use any of the advice above remember make sure it is rinsed thoroughly afterward to re-proof it with fabsil.

I used white vinegar and oxi did the trick but had to redo waterproofing afterwards
