    Mold from Monkey fur-gctid800882

    Does anyone know the best way to get mold out of the monkey fur on the walls in the master or anywhere on the boat?

    I had good luck with Oxyclean Gel. Get the stuff that had the knurled rubber top. Get the fur wet and scrub with the applicator then rinse off. Repeat as needed.

        I've had good luck with this, FOLEX 32-oz Carpet Cleaner for general cleaning of carpets and fabrics. It's available at the big box home improvement stores for less than $6. If this doesn't do the job a 10% bleach and water solution on a sponge or in a spray bottle should do the trick.

          I removed all the monkey fur on the boat except the fwd stateroom, we used a rental carpet/furniture shampoo machine on it, works great,

          The ceiling in the salon was done with cream color fiberglass bathroom paneling from Lowes.

          The port head was done in white bathroom paneling as was the shower, both staterooms sliding doors were walled up for privacy, it looks much cleaner now.

            Spray bottle full of diluted Oxy-Clean and a shop vac. Spray on until soaked and vacuum away excess moisture. Don't scrub you get pilling, just flood the area and repeat if necessary. It works amazingly.

              I just used a cloth and clean water and it disappeared. The shopvac idea is good. The rubber applicator on the gel bottle is smooth and I didn't find that it caused any pilling. It helps apply the product deeper into the fabric.

                I did some sections last week.

                I used oxyclean spray and scrubbed a bit, then used a Bissell carpet shampooer (Little Green Machine) to remove the cleaner and rinse.

                The small darker staining came pretty clean, some completely. Overall the sections I did clean are quite noticeable now. I now have a bigger job on my hands; I now have to do all of it. I thought it looked really clean before...

                With this method it removes all soap like residue.

                  The nice thing about a sprayer (I used a garden variety) is you can flood the area and it soaks way down into the fur and pulls away everything that holds a smell. That works well on auto carpets as well.

                    When I shampooed mine, my sweetheart did spray it prior to shampooing, great idea it works.

                      In UK we have Dettol Mould and Mildew remover, which contains bleach. Used carefully, and rinsed off quickly, it does a great job on this type of problem. Leave it too long and it will "bleach" the colour, but if you pay attention it is great.

                            I rinsed mine with a hose. And I used a 5 gallon bucket with laundry detergent and a sponge. Mine was bad. I had to leave for 3 months on short notice so didn't get to winterize.

                            So on a sunny spring day I jacked the trailer tounge really high and went to town. Took the whole weekend to scrub all the mold out of my 2252 but it looked very clean and fresh after. I left the heater on full blast with all doors closed for a few days to dry it out.
