Charles :

Hello again

Charles :

Some stains, like mold and mildew, are very hard if not impossible to remove all the way.

Charles :

You can try a non-chlorine bleach, that's going to be about your best bet.

Charles :

Only use it diluted at about 25%non chlorine bleach to 75%water

Charles :

I have also had good luck with 409 with bleach in it (pre made and sold that way)

Charles :

It will take a few applications but that should get most if not all of it out.

Charles :

If these cushions have a removable cover (if you can remove the padding from the cover) you can try hand washing them also.
