To really, permanently remove mould stains proceed as follows.

Dissolve a teaspoon of potassium permanganate (Pharmacy) in a glass of water. Apply to the stains with a sponge, use rubber gloves, the solution has an intense purple color.
Wait a few minutes, then rinse with lots of water.

Mould shows as brown stains now, the purple washes off easily.

Now dissolve a handful of vitamin C tablets in a glass of water and apply to the stains. They will disappear like magic. Rinse with clean water and you're done.

This also works on sails, tarps and other fabrics.

Sorry should have been more specific. One after the other.

I understood his intentions very well!
There isn't the slightest danger, permanganate is sold by pharmacies because it is also used to treat certain types of mouth sores, albeit in much lower concentration. I've used the procedure to remove mould from curtains, sun shades and upholstery. It takes some courage to keep on going when white fabric turns deep purple with ugly brown stains, but after the vitamin C treatment you can relax.

Dettol & FPS - spray on leave for five mins then a rub with a green scourer & wash off - FPS first then scrub/rinse/ then the Dettol - seems to work best for me

Then some 3m or other tube conditioner/ protector

Well I started with the Cif Cream £2 Asda, I left it on for about 5 Mins I agitated it with a soft scourer then washed off with cLean water.
RESULT. No visible difference maybe slightly cleaner but the mould still remained.

Next was the turn of the Dettol mould + meldew remover £3.65 Asda, As before I left on for 5 mins No agitation this time and then washed off.
RESULT. No visible difference mould still remained.

Next was The famous Fairy Power spray £2 Asda, once again i left it on for 5 mins agitated it slightly then washed off.
RESULT. Wow Much cleaner BUTTTT mould still remained.

Finally Cilit Bang Black mould remover £3.75 and you no the drill by now.
RESULT. AMAZING BANG BANG all the mould except a few little bits has gone

In Summary of all the cleaners tried over the last couple of days you can't go far wrong with FPS, But if you need to get rid of mould then Cillit BANG black mould remover is the stuff to use.
