Whats a good process, without doing damage, to a dirty boat cover ?

I've heard a mix of dawn and bleach, but I've also heard never use bleach.

The boat sits outside covered and stays clean, but the cover over time has gotten rather dirty with several dark, perhaps mold or tree stains, does not help that the neighbor has a large mango tree just on the other side of the fence...

Suggestions ???

Dawn, bleach and water are what I use on my Sunbrella cover and it works great. Get the ratio from Sunbrella's website. Stay away from the stitching of the cover as the bleach will burn them.
After it's all clean and dry, use 303 Fabric protector and the water will bead off like a freshly waxed car.

I took mine to the laundry mat and put it in the super sized washer. Loaded it with soap and bleach and it came out like new.

Truth be told I did not know what how to use the equipment, I just handed it to the lady, walked out the door and 2 hours later she called me and told me it was washed, dried, folded and ready to be picked up for all of $10.
