Well OK, if you say so. Seems the verdict's still out on whether milk
actually kills it or just inhibits the stuff, from what I've read, but I
don't really know. At any rate, my point was that one shouldn't expect any
fungicide, organic or synthetic, to cure a raging case of mildew. More
effective to use it early as a deterrent.
