    I use bleach and water . Do you use other products to keep it under control better? What tool or brush do you use to reach the cracks and crevices . Still learning thanks

    That is from fabric softener, such as Downy.

    I have had the same issure, and have been using tilex. I have the attendants a couple of times a week squirt down the softner slot with tilex when it is not busy so it can soak. It has definitely made a difference. They still occasionaly have to scrub to, but even then it comes off alot better with tilex. We use to soak the rubber flaps in a bucket of water with clorox in it, but it started ruining the rubber, and they would have to soak for a week to get rid of the black.
