Does anyone know of a way to get stains out of vinyl placemats?

What has happened was that in the past, the dc spilled something on the table. They wiped the spill on top of the mat but neglected to wipe underneath. Some have mildew stains. I have attempted to soak them in bleach but to no avail. I could try again using a stronger solution..

any ideas...I am thinking of switching to cloth placemats to avoid this problem in the future.

I read from the Queen of Clean (author Linda Cobb) to make a paste of lemon juice and cream of tartar. Rub into the stain. Let the paste stay on the stain for a few minutes. Rinse. Hope this helps.

Try x 14 mildew stain remover, http://www.x14brand.com/products/

I am going to try this on an area of caulk on the tub. It is the one area that grows black mold. I have tried several products, but maybe I should take preventive measures and spray it every morning after all showers. I think, though I'll start with vinegar. My husband recently replaced the caulk, again. While it's on my mind, I should do it. Let me know if it works on the placemats.

I suggest you make a mixture of white vinegar and water, in equal amounts and dip the placemats in it. After a few minutes clean it gently. If it didn't work check out this guide on how to wash placemats, it has suggested many different ways of cleaning placemats.
