Treat as soon as possible, mildew rots fabrics.
Rubbing soap onto the soiled area, then washing the article as soon as possible, can sometimes remove the marks. If marks remain after several washes, white linens and cottons can be soaked in a weak solution of bleach. Otherwise, after first testing on the hem, soak in mixture of one part 20 vol. hydrogen peroxide to six parts of water. Watch item carefully while soaking as bleeding of colour can occur. Wash as normal.
Using a soft cloth moistened with a little mild antiseptic dissolved in warm water, wipe off mildew from furnishings and carpets.
