Removing mold from TT canvas

My T top canvas has MAJOR mold on it so I was thinking about removing it and tossing in the washing machine,but then I thought why not ask other forum members what they thought and should I add any thing other than laundry soap sooooo what do you folks think good idea/bad idea?
and remember when all else fails "jiggle that wire"
Thanks in advance Mike

    Bleach will kill it, but in my experience completely removing mold is like stopping rust - you jut can't get there without removing the parent material.

    I make a gal of the following formula. 1/4 water 1/4 ammonia 1/2 Simple Green. If it is weak add more ammonia.

    OK but what about the washing machine part,it has to be relaced anyway?

    Guys... just unlace it and throw it in your pool... the next day mold is gone... rinse in fresh water/w a little soap and water...
    And it's ready to tie on again... WALLAH...!!! New Canvas. or it looks new any way..

    303 makes the "Sunbrella" cleaner & retreat with the 303 fabric guard for waterproofing

    +1 on No Bleach!! It will remove the mold, but it will most likely damage the thread holding the fabric together. It can also damage the fabric by weakening it.
