    Hello,

    I saw a post by Marydoright back in 2008. The fantastic renovation of your PUC (pop up Camper) was nothing but fantasctic. The mold/mildew ALL gone.

    I looked for the product that they mentioned, Lemon Mold & Mildew Cleaner, bought at a Bass Pro shop. I went online online and no luck. They said it might only be stocked in local/specific stores. Can anyone help.

    Also, I kneed to know - did it compromise the waterproof factor of the canvas? Did you leak? If yes, what product did you use to re-waterproof.

    Appreciating any and all help/feeback.

    Thanks,
    --David

    The product you are looking for is called Bass Pro Shop Mold& Mildew remover, they dropped the word lemon. If you have a BPS near you it can be found in the boating dept. The bottle is blue and it has a boat on it, The product works very well just make sure to rinse it off thoroughly after it is cleaned. We did rewaterproof ours because it was time, we used a spray from walmart with a neon orange lid(dont remember the name [?:~{]). It is made for fabrics such as canvas. Hope this helps.

    Sorry it took so long to get back. The item found on this link is not what I used, it may work as well but I used the actual Bass Pro Shop brand in a blue bottle. I found it on their website about a month ago when I cleaned mine but now it is not on there. I bought mine at the store near me, your best chance of finding it would be to go to the store if you have one close. I will keep digging to see if I can find a link. [CP]

    Speaking with my Bass Pro shop in Mass, he told me that the Bass brand Mold & Mildew product is actually made by Starbrite. Their brand $5.99, Starbrite much more. Hope this helps.
    I haven't tried using it yet. But I can tell you that I tried lemon juice and salt (no luck). Rubbing alcholol & water (50/50 mix) - no luck. Oxyclean - no luck. Chlorox 2 - no luck. I have stubborn black stains that even with scrubbing, they're not coming clean. I, too, fear any bleach based product....but may try it since I'm getting nowhere fast.

    I gave the other stuff a try first too but had no luck, after we used the mold & mildew cleaner the canvas looked brand new. Wished I would have taken before & after pics. [CP]

    Just a heads up, for anyone in the Toronto area, the Bass Pro shop there does NOT stock this cleaner. Good thing I wanted to see the place anyway! :) It can't be ordered from Bass Pro online to Canada either - guess I'll have to check the RV and boat shops around here.

    Hi , I have some little black dots forming on my camper, i purchased some mold and mildew cleaner at the RV center, the instructions on the bottle says to spray and leave it on for 2 hours, and then clean throughly with water, just wondering if it should be left on this long, anybody have any suggestions on this?

    Thanks for the info. I've been wanting to get some of that stuff. I'm going to call Bass Pro in Foxboro ($.27/oz) and also West Marine in East Greenwich ($.55/oz) and see if they have the stuff in stock and take a ride. Only thing is.. it'll cost me $10 in gas to go to Foxboro vs. $3 in gas to go to EG, lol!

    Went up to Bass Pro Shops today and bought a bottle of their cleaner. It basically is a bleach solution, and I have a feeling it's a very strong one. The bottle says, and I'm paraphrasing, to:

    spray it on, let it penetrate for 30 sec to a min, and rinse thoroughly with water. Deep stains may require a thorough soaking and an additional treatment with light scrubbing, rinsing well afterwards. Rinse thoroughly after use, especially on vinyl, plastic or rubber surfaces. Not intended for use on fabrics.

    Contains Sodium Hypochlorite and Sodium Hydroxide. Not recommended for use by persons with heart conditions or chronic respiratory problems. Do not use on wood or painted surfaces unless you plan to refinish or repaint them afterwards. Do not mix with household chemicals.

    I think it's just really important to rinse well. This stuff will eat through stuff if left on too long, or not rinsed thoroughly. I'm going to be very careful using it on the inside of the canvas. I think that, if not very careful and not rinsed well, it could eat away the fabric lining. [:O]

    We have used the "blue bottle stuff" from Bass Pro Shops. It does work beautifully and best I can tell, has NOT required re-waterproofing..<----redneck word?

    We had some minor mold after our FIRST outing with our brand spanking (off the show-room floor) new. We folded up with dew. Lesson learned...wait till it dries. Anyhow...wanted to attack this issue early. We found the stuff from BPS, which was not available online. Was an in-store purchase only. We used it, removed ALL mold spots, flecks, etc. Several months later...SEVERAL months....poured [{}=] over Thanksgiving weekend while we were camping and had NO problem with waterproofing.

    I swear by the stuff. Only recommendation I have is make SURE you have plenty of ventilation when using.

    Good Luck...hope my response was helpful and answered your question directly.

    What do you use to scrub it? I scrub brush or is that to harsh? Also how do you rinse it off afterwards? Wet sponge?
