Mold on tent material.

Hi camping pals. I have a Mac 246D pop up and noticed mold on the zip up flaps on tent ends, what's the best way to remove it? The flaps are a type of cloth material. Thanks!

I slept on an inflatable with mold on it all night long with no pillow and it wasn't until I woke up in the morning that I realized it had mold. Don't recommend it but I lived , lol.

Not knowing the year........is there a tag anywhere inside that might mention who made it? If so, you should try to contact them..........I'm sure the fabric is some sort of acrylic.......but you never know. Something mild in soap and water?

I have used hydrogen peroxide for years on tent and boat canvas. Doesn't harm material or thread.

Most marinas in my area use a product called X14.

I've had pretty good luck with the Camco Mildew Stain Remover from Walmart. It's in the RV section.
