I'm with Biff on this one, this is what we do 6 days a week and nothing will completely get rid of them. We do a mould removal kit that helps improve matters but even that won't get rid.

I'm with the pro's on this one.

I've got grey tubes, which are fine, but the yellow and white trim sections are a bit mildewy.

Nothing I've tried gets it off - (Rib Revive, bathroom mildew remover, acetone, TFR, etc) Someone on another thread recommended grade 600 wet and dry - tried a small section with grade 800 (gently) and I think all you're likely to do is take the surface off the hypalon... Just tried cif with a rough cloth and that doesn't work for me either.

If there is a guaranteed successful way to do it, of course I'd be interested.
