Clorox for Mildew

I purchased my 1974 Island 20 about 20 years ago and inherited a persistent mildew problem in the cabin. Every spring, I put on a mask and spray down all the surfaces with Clorox Clean-up Cleaner with bleach (www.clorox.com). It keeps the mold at bay for the season, and because it has a detergent, it cleans as well. It is also useful for areas above decks, including cleaning moldy teak. The best thing is that it is readily available and can cost as little as $3 for 32 ounces.
