    Hi guys,

    I just got some white seat belts for free but the have mildew stains (the donor truck was leaky). I was wondering if bleach would break down the fibres like it does to cotton? Any info is appreciated.

    bleach will compromise the strenth of the seat belts, maybe Simple Green might help or Oxy Clean.
