Have you tried Lysol Mold/Mildew remover or any of the other similar products (x-19, Tilex, etc)

Although I have not tried Those products, i have tried other bleach based products like these with no effect. I'm pretty sure the material is silicone so but I'm not sure.

Tilex mold and mildew remover should be able to remove that.

I've used simple green, no joy. I'll give telex and the magic eraser a try. Thanks

Brezzin, That algecide I noted is not bleech based.. I tried bleech on a lot of moldy stuff and found that in many cases, it just won't do the job.. I have a pool in the backyard, so I had some of this around.. I spritzed some in a particularly black spotted locker that bleech would not help.. This stuff certainly did the trick.. It is basically the same stuff that the professional folks use .. those who de-mold (dis-mold? Un-mold?) a house after a flood..
