Excellent stuff! I had a midewy smell in my shower for weeks now. I tried scrubbing, Tilex mildew remover, even bleach, but it would always come back. Now I keep a small spray bottle of this in the bathroom and spray the shower every morning after we're done in there. I have been using this for a couple of weeks, and NO mildew smell!!! HOORAY for Velvetinenut - my hero!

I have used this on the indoor/outdoor carpet in my screened in porch. The only difference is that I used 1 quart of water. The carpet used to smell of mildew a lot, now it hardly does at all! This stuff is great!

I spray this on the carpet before I vacuum to get rid of the musty smell. It's also amazing that a couple days later, all the kitty hair goes in one pile and you can pick it up easily. It's almost like a magnet. I will continue to use this.
