Hello there... I am desparate to find some help please!!! We have a black mould stain on the roof of the bed end to our Jayco Eagle (on the canvas). We have tried a solution of salt & water which made no difference (as suggested in the Shannon Lush Stainless book). Has anyone had any luck in removing such stains, if so please let me in on the secret :) - Thankyou, Fiona

Hi. Thanks for the info. I have already read through that thread. Am a bit concerned with using bleach, especially as he suggests to hose it off. This is a bit hard when its the inside of my canvas thats stained, if you know what I mean. Is there anyone out there that has treated canvas on a Jayco Camper before?

Maybe use a very wet cloth and wipe as much of the bleach as possible off??

Hi Fiona,
Bleach is diluted chlorine, I have used chlorine on canvas many times (successfully). Have used it on,the vinyl sides of my Jayco poptop,suggest you try on an area not readily visible. No need to hose off as long as you rinse off with clean water.
Mike.

Hi, I have a Jayco finch outback 2000 and had a bad mould stain on the roof of one bed-end. The only way to get rid of mould is to kill it, washing with soap and water won't help. I sprayed on exit-mould, left it for 5 min. and then sprayed with water and wiped with a rag. It completely dissapeared and didn't harm the canvas. Remember that the canvas has a rubber coating on the outside so there is no problem with waterproofing.

Have you tried steam from the kettle! that should kill the spores.

Another mould kill/remover is vinegar (white) and you can get the dilution rate off google.

Enviro friendly, I use it on my vinyl annexe with success.

We have used stuff called 30 seconds from Bunnings with great success.

I just rinse off with lots of water

Just means you will need t mop up inside

I use a product called "Magic Eraser" made by Chux. Available in most supermarkets where you get cleaning cloths. It is like a white sponge with a blue sponge backing . You dampen the while sponge slightly and clean using the white side . Just do small areas around a 6" circle lightly squeeze out the sponge and then use the blue side to remove excess moisture from your work. I then dry with an bath towel
