      I have an Uncle Mike’s nylon sling that has some mildew spots on it, what’s the best way to clean them off?

      WD-40 is you’re friend for cleaning synthetics. Scrub it in with a toothbrush,

      Once the sling is totally saturated, take it to the sink and squirt Dawn on it. Scrub it in right over the WD-40.
      Add water/scrub scrub scrub.
      Repeat till all the oil/soap is gone.
      Voila

      Great thanks, I was hoping I wouldn’t have to use vinegar or bleach.

      Mildew is a problem. I would recommend soaking it in vinegar, then diluted bleach water to kill the mold. Then use the dish washing liquid and a toothbrush to clean it well.

      So, there you are, right where you didn’t want to be!
