I would treat it with a hydrogen peroxide Mold / Mildew remover, then, any residual spotting or grime, I would scrub with Soft-Scrub cream cleanser.

At the very extreme, you can "burn" the top layer of the material off with a rag and some solvent... xylene, toluene, or MEK works fine.

Thanks guys. I have MEK and Toluene in my shop. I will try that. If it does not come off, how well will paint stick? What kind?

Try the MEK and Toluene first. I wouldn't be painting that, although you can buy tube paint that might work?

Use a paint/dye formulated for vinyl.

I've used SEM Vinylcoat with good success.
