Default Cleaning Lifeline Jackets?

A couple of mine fell into one of my sponsons and got that nasty black mildew on them. Any suggestions on how to get 'em cleaned up? Thanks...Al

You can spray them down heavily with either Spray & Wash, or a similar product, let it soak, then put the jacket in a high efficiency washing machine set on either "hand wash" or "delicate". That will do a really good job cleaning them up without damaging the jacket itself, since the high efficiency washers are more delicate, & the Spray & Wash doesn't contain bleach.

Any of the products like "Shout, Spray & Wash, etc" will work great, just NOT anything with bleach like Clorox's version of Spray & Wash or anythign like that, or it will weaken the fabric as well as make spots.
