    How do I wash my Sea Doo Covers

    I have a 2004 GTX and a 2012 GTI.
    I always store them in the garage but for this winter season I had home improvement projects going on so I had to store them outside.

    Well, the result was dark black stains on the outside of the covers (looks like where water has dripped off the covers)
    Then on the inside it looks like mold or mildew. Of course I was pissed until I was able to just wipe off my seats with a towel and hot water.
    But, then comes the question of do I want to risk putting my covers back on and transferring that stuff back to my seats.
    Not to mention all the nats that are attracted to the covers. Must have been 100 to 200 of them loving to stay attached to my covers even when I shook them off the covers.
    One cover is 2 years old and the other one is 5 years old. They both cost $250 each and both are Sea Doo Brands.

    Is there a good way of cleaning my covers to get the stains off the outside and get the mold/mildew off the inside?
    I'm trying to save $500 from buying new ones so any suggestions would really be appreciated.

    Thank yo

    I usually clean mine once a year or so. Big bucket. filled with water and laundry detergent. soak the cover, scrub, let it sit in the bucket for a while. hose it down and hang to dry.

    I tried putting mine in the washer.
    Doesn't look like it damaged it but all the stains are still there. The smell is gone so maybe the mold/mildew is too.
    But still looks like 15 years old cover that has been kept outside for 15 years instead just one year.

    do I use any chemicals and can I scrub it or is it just laundry detergent?

    I just stretch mine over two heavy patio chairs and spray with bleach. Hose off and let dry. When we had a swimming pool I'd throw it in and let soak a few days. Chlorinated pool water works wonders.

    How is the water resistance holding up after all that?

    I'd like to reapply some waterproofing to my cover, but I worry the wrong waterproofing might drip through the cover and stain the boat. Has anyone here used waterproofing that didn't cause a problem?

    Stretch out between something like heavy lawn chairs,saw horses ect. Apply and let dry. What I done with one cover was to cover the ski with sheet plastic,installed cover and applied the repellent.

    Ya I washed my old covers with bleach and then re-waterproofed them without an issue. I used Kiwi waterproofer spray (bought it at Dicks Sporting Goods) for like $7 a can which did one cover. After washing and letting the covers dry, I put them on two patio chairs and waterproofed both sides.

    Heres a link to the product I used: http://www.walmart.com/ip/21799461?w...387311&veh=sem
