How do I prevent mildew (mold) from growing on my dock?

If you are concerned about "mold" on your Nesto Pad, it is actually likely mildew that concerns you (mildew is what sometimes grows on damp textiles, whereas mold tends to grow on food or in other areas).  Any time fabric does not dry out after getting wet (e.g. from wet diapers, spit-up, sweat, or incomplete drying after washing, etc.), there is a chance mildew can develop.  Here is how you can help prevent mildew from developing on your Nesto Pad -          

      -If the Nesto Pad gets wet or damp, allow it to dry completely before using or stowing away.

      -Move the Nesto Pad about—regularly shake it, ventilate it, and expose it to light and fresh air.

      -Avoid storing the Nesto Pad in humid or damp areas.   

If you should find mildew on the Nesto Pad over time, we recommend adding a cup of white vinegar when washing the product according to the instructions on the product label.  Alternatively, you can soak the affected piece to soak in a solution of white vinegar and water for an hour or two before washing the piece according to the instructions on the product label. 

Notably, there is nothing in the materials of Nesto Pad that causes mildew, and we have refrained from adding anti-fungal or anti-bacterial chemicals to the Nesto Pad.  However, like any fabric product, mildew can grow on a Nesto Pad if it gets wet and is not fully dried.  Appropriate care is necessary to keep your pad in top shape.
