Foaming Mr Muscle oven cleaner is seriously good at removing unwanted stains.
The thing is that it is seriously strong and so removes wanted stuff if left on too long. As long as you take care you should be fine........and test first!

In the past to clean my boat interior I used a softish horse face brush, and Softscrub. With a little elbow grease the mold stains always came off.

I use MEK and scrub with a green scouring pad. Wash down with dish soap after.

Acetone is great stuff. However if like me you don't wear gloves then it doesn't do your hands much good as it takes all the oil out of your skin.

Acetone is a carcinogen. Very bad to let it contact skin in any way, as your body will soak it up. Breathing it is a very fast way to get it into your blood stream also. Nasty stuff, which is why it works so well. Just make sure to use proper protection as short term you may not notice health issues, but over time all the chemicals we work with can cause major health issues.
