I have mildew on my fabric head linings and have had some success with Stain Devil, can't remember which number it is, ( it says for mildew on the bottle). It comes in a powder form, but I found it only worked when mixed as a very strong solution.
I would be interested to know if Oxalyc Acid would work better, but worry that it might burn holes in the fabric. What strength dilution would you use for fabric to avoid such a catastrophe?.
I only mentioned oxalic acid to set the scene. Little did I know that it would prove to be something of a cure-all. I will give it a go at the suggested dilution but can't help but wonder now if it might remove the unsightly blemishes on Grandma's support tights.

DETTOX available from your local Supermarket also great with stains too. Read instructions first. I recently came across it after having badly stained decks (from leaves) someone pointed me at it .... very impressive. My wife said "Didn't you know? I always keep some under the kitchen sink" How would I know that, I don't even know where the kitchen sink is ;-)
