How do you eliminate mildew from boat plexiglas?
Use a 1/2 cup of bleach in a 3/4 of a gallon on bleach. Add a little soap if you want. Sponge it on the surface and let it sit for a minute.
You can use the same drill you use for drilling metal. Answer: Yes you can use a metal drill bit, but you have to be very careful with Plexiglas when drilling, it can chip-out, break-out, or even crack the Plexiglas. The way to drill without no chip-out is to sandwich the Plexiglas between two pieces of wood. TIP: make sure the Plexiglas is held tight between the 2 pieces of wood when drilling.
Plexiglas was discovered by Walter Bauer and Otto Rohm of the Rohm and Haas company in Germany in 1933. some people, mostly Canadians, claim that William Chalmers discovered Plexiglas at McGill University, while a graduate student. He actually worked with an inferior plastic called poly(ethyl methacrylate) at a later date.

Mold and mildew have many similar characteristics, but they are different types of fungi, and are often different in color and texture. Mold and mildew are often mentioned together as they can both grow in many of the same moist and warm locations. However, mildew is often found more often than mold in showers, paper and fabrics and mold is usually found more often than mildew in foods. They can sometimes be difficult to tell…
Freezing slows the growth of mildew but does not kill it. (Same with dry conditions.) Once warm moist conditions return, the frozen mildew will continue to grow as if nothing happened. Thus freezing and drying serve more as mildew prevention measures rather than as mildew reduction measures. Techniques to reduce mildew include washing, bleaching, and sunning.
