Mold and Mildew

I read with interest PSís recent comments regarding mold/mildew solutions (PS, June 2013), and I have a recommendation for you to consider. The product is Mold Armor Mold and Mildew Stain Remover from W.M. Barr in Memphis, Tenn. I have used it on hard surfaces and fabric where it successfully removed the staining on both surfaces, and it did not bleach the fabric. This is the best mold remover and inhibitor I have come across, and I have a long list of less successful products.

We previously tested Mold Armorís predecessor, Klean Strip, naming it our Best Choice in the January 2009 test of mold and mildew removers and reporting that it was our top pick for extreme cases in the June 2010 evaluation of mildew preventers. Klean Strip, which was discontinued and replaced with Mold Armor (, had a higher bleach content than Mold Armor, making Mold Armor a better choice for use on fabrics and fiberglass.

Mariners spend extended periods at sea. Most deep-sea mariners are hired for one or more voyages that last for several months. There is no job security after that. The length of time between voyages varies by job availability and personal preference.
