mildew and tents

1. Grab a bottle of McNett Mirazyme.

Mix about a half-ounce into a gallon of water and use a nylon-bristled vegetable brush to scrub the gross spots. (If mildew plagues your whole tent, dissolve a full ounce of Mirazyme into a bathtub and scrub down the whole thing.

2. Set the tent up outside in the shade to let it dry.

3. Now mix 1 cup concentrated lemon juice (the type that comes in those little plastic lemons), 1 cup of table salt, and a gallon of hot water. Use a sponge to bathe the whole tent. Then let it dry thoroughly before packing.

  1. That’s good; I’d never heard of Mirazyme.

    I’ve always made major use of Chlorox. Diluted solution totally cleans water bottles, anything (except very careful on the nice clothes). Then I soak in solution of vinegar (cheaper than lemon juice). The vinegar trick really helps on the synthetic clothes, which tend to stink even after being washed.
