    Anybody have any good methods of ridding Featherweight cases of mildew. There isn't a lot, but I can see some spores. I've left it out in the sun for the moment. I saw somewhere else here that it was recommended to wipe out interior with 1/2 bleach 1/2 water, but I would think the bleach would ruin the fabric lining.

    Any help would be gratefully appreciated. :)

    How about good old Lysol spray. It kills molds and won't bleach out the fabric.

    My case still stinks a little after baking the case in the summer sun for weeks during the mid day.....Done the lysol, baking soda, ect...I'm thinking about replacing the fabric.

    No spores that I can see...just a bit of odor.

    If you can't use bleach, spray with vinegar.

    Thanks for all the ideas. I have it baking in the sun right now, but I'm going to get a 200W light bulb for tomorrow.
