"Do not use hoke chemical or ammonium that will make it worse!

Sprit vinegar, fungicidal fluid from wickes or bnq both mixed in a small cup.

Gently dab with a dish cloth

Drench the same cloth in boiling water. Ring it and place on top for a couple hours. Then use a plastic bristle brush in one direction only using oxi clean. It will definitely ome out !"
