Help: Mildew on soft top

I have what appears to be small mildew spots on the inside of my soft top roof. Likely I left the top down and water got in there and sat.

I was thinking of the old bleach cure to dab a bit on the spots. Does anyone know if this will burn the fabric or if it's ok to do? Other sure remidies that won't damage the top?

As always, thanks in advance.

Check with a boatyard, they've got mildew remover. I think I even got some at walmart before.

Check camping supply stores too. Tents often get mildewy and need cleaning.

I have a new tent camper,and when I bought it the dealer told me to mix 3 to 1 water & bleach and scrub it and hose it off. The soft top should be close to the same. [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img]
