Question Mold stains on seats?

We were cleaning the '05 X-2 this weekend and no luck removing these stains. I'm guessing they are stains from mold growth? We tried Totally Awesome, Oxiclean, Dawn and small amount of magic eraser (being careful since it's abrasive). We let the products sit for ~10mins as well.

Any further suggestions? Thank you all!

I have used soft scrub with bleach and a scrub brush with a little water and then spray off, works great but don't leave it on.

Easy fix. Pump up sprayer and Oxy Clean. Keep wet for 15 minutes or so. Gone......

Put two scoops of Oxy Clean in a five gallon bucket of water put about 3 to 4 gallons of water in the bucket, and mix with your hand until it's dissolved, trust me you'll be mixing for a while. If not this method it will clog up the pump up sprayer. You may use a soft bristle brush but not hard. They key is to keep it wet for over 15 minutes. Rinse and let dry in direct sun for at least two days.
Then spray 303 aerospace protectant on all the seats, including the sides and underneath.

Did you let it sit in the sun? UV will sometimes bleach out the stain, kill the mold.

Try baking soda and vinegar. Here are some instructions and information.

The Sun is your best friend. What you are looking at is the root system of the mold. Sunshine will bleach it away but may take more than a few days!

You can use degreaser.....

warning....dilute to 50%....only go stronger as required. DO NOT LET IT SIT.....

This will work amazingly well...but this stuff is very strong.

Test on an out of the way area first.
