Removing Mildew

Mildew can develop any time your tent is stored wet. It looks bad, smells bad and can damage your tent's waterproof coatings. DON'T LET IT START. Alas, if it already exists, here's one way to approach it:
Try some light scrubbing with a sponge during a regular cleaning session.
If it's still apparent, mix one-half cup of Lysol® in 1 gallon of hot water.
Dip a sponge in this solution use it to lightly but thoroughly scrub mildew-afflicted areas.
Set up the tent and allow it to air dry.
Then, mix 1 cup of salt and 1 cup of concentrated lemon juice with 1 gallon of hot water.
Rub the solution into the visible mildew and once again, allow the tent to dry.
This procedure will stop mildew growth and eliminate the odor, but will not remove the stain.
