Simply Build It

We bought some of this stuff a month or so ago.
It doesn't work.
It got some off but, not all.
Mostly leaves a brown stain behind but thats not what we wanted.
I've always cut the old marked stuff off and re sealed that works
for a time.
There is new stuff on the market that supposed to keep mould free for ten years.
