This year I took out any removable cushions from my boat and stored them in my attic, the attic stays warm through the winter. I was periodically checking on them to make sure there wasen't any evidence of mice getting at them. They have been in the attic since october, some of the cushions were lying on top of one another. I haden't noticed any evidence of mice or any mold, until I checked them the other day.
They have black mold/mildew on a few of the bow cushions which I have been able to get off for the most part, but they also have these reddish/brown stains, which almost looks like dried blood. I have no idea how they got there, what the cause was or how to get them off.
Before I put them away I cleaned them all off with spray nine marine, wiped them off and thought they were all dry..
I have searched the internet looking for a solution to remove the stains, the best thing I had found was a bottle of malco plastic and leather cleaner which I ordered but will take a few weeks to receive it.
Does anyone know what caused these stains? or how to get them out? luckily its only on 3 of the cushions, but I would prefer to remove the stains rather than having the vinyl replaced.
I hope someone has the answer I am looking for
