Mildew on Video Game Chair

Hey everyone. So I just got a video game chair off of the side of the road. Its fishy, I know, but these things are expensive. It’s got some pretty bad mildew in it from being rained on. Can it be saved? How would I go about cleaning the fabric cushions and such. I really want to fix it, thanks!

Hello and welcome to the forum! If it got inside to the foam and batting, it needs to be reupholstered with new foam and batting. Sorry, there's no other way. You can't just clean it. There are videos and books out there on how to DIY. Having it done professionally will cost almost as much as buying a new one.

IF it's just on the exterior, a bleach solution should remove the mildew BUT if the mildew goes deeper it will return.
