Moldy lifejacket cleaning tips?
Anyone had luck cleaning lifejackets? I've got a couple of kid sized ones we've used for guests. To my dismay they're showing a bit of mold or something. They must not have been clean/dry when I put them away last Fall. I tried running them through the washing machine. That cleaned them up somewhat but didn't put a dent in what looks like mold or mildew.
Given these are often for small kids I want to avoid new parent "worries" about exposure to things. I know, life is dirty, get used to it... Meanwhile I'd rather avoid guests worrying about it.
I've seen a few posts elsewhere online with suggestions. Anyone here have a tried-and-true method? Lemon/sun, vinegar, bleach, etc? I know to be careful about bleach, of course.
