Default Removing mildew from gear?

Hi all. Getting to be cold enough to need my favorite semi-dry jacket.
Turns out I'd left it in my front hatch all summer, and it's covered
with tiny mildew dots. It's a Patagonia, label says "hand wash only, no
bleach". Any great anti-mildew ideas to share? Thanks.........Bill

You may want to take a look at the Clorox 2. It is especially for clothes
with labels that say not to bleach. I have had good results with it.
Just make sure and follow the directions.

If you rinse your gear and let it dry completely, you don't need
anything else. I've tested "Mirazyme" and "Sink the Stink" and neither
one works any better than rinsing and drying without them. Neither one
will prevent your gear from getting foul if you don't rinse and dry it
properly. IMO, they're a waste of money.

Wash it and hang it on the clothes line for a few days, the sun and wind
are helpful.
