    If the gear is colorfast then a weak bleach solution is simple, effective and cheap. About 1:20 should do it.
    If cave men had been trophy hunters the Wooly Mammoth would be alive today

    Thanks.......I am also looking for Pre-treating products like scotch guard. In the old days we painted wall tents as soon as they shrunk down tight on the wood frame. That helped a lot.

    I have also used THOMPSON WATER SEAL. Also a few times.....Bees-wax melted in heated diesel fuel.

    But this is about much more than tents.........FILSON canvas products for example, and clothing.

    Mirazyme kills mold and mildew. It is used to defunk wetsuits but will work to take mildew out of tents and other gear.
