Keep Your Pool Fun and Mildew-Free with Wet & Forget!

how to clean mildew

You’ve got your favorite swim gear, the right tunes and some fresh-squeezed lemonade, and you’re ready to kick back poolside. But if your pool or deck is stained with mold, mildew, moss, algae or lichen, you’ve also got an ugly, slippery problem.

Zap the stains with Wet & Forget, and get back to celebrating summer!

For stains at the water line:

Wet & Forget will remove mold, mildew or algae stains without harming your pool’s vinyl liner. To clean, lower the water level of the pool until the whole stain is exposed to the air.

Allow the affected are to dry completely. Spray the stained area with a solution of 1 part Wet & Forget and 5 parts water. Allow 4 to 5 hours for the surface to dry completely, and then raise the pool’s water to the desired level.

Because Wet & Forget is a gentle, nearly pH-neutral product, any overspray will not change your pool’s pH.

For stains on the outer sides of above-ground pools:

Wet & Forget is safe to use on the aluminum and plastic surfaces of the outside of your pool. Spray the area with 1 part Wet & Forget mixed with 5 parts water, allow 4 to 5 hours to dry before the chance of rain.

Spray once and let Wet & Forget do the rest of the work for you.

For concrete around the pool:

Wet & Forget removes moss, mold, mildew, algae or lichen from concrete surfaces. For moss, mold, mildew or algae, spray the concrete with a solution of 1 part Wet & Forget and 5 parts water and allow 4 to 5 hours to dry.

For lichen, saturate the area with diluted Wet & Forget, wait 15 minutes, then saturate the area a second time. This allows Wet & Forget to penetrate lichen’s multiple layers.


For poolside furniture:

Even your outdoor furniture can fall prey to ugly, smelly mold and mildew.

For a cure, remove the cushions and thoroughly saturate the furniture and cushions with a solution of 1 part Wet & Forget and 5 parts water. Allow the surfaces to dry completely, and rinse well with a garden hose.

Just like these happy customers discovered, Wet & Forget will even get rid of ugly mold or mildew on your pool’s diving board!
