How can I clean or cover the moldy buttons on these chairs?

A friend gave me two of these Crate & Barrel chairs, which have been sitting in his basement for years. The buttons are speckled with what looks like mold. The stains don't seem to be going anywhere; hand soap diluted in water had no effect. Does anyone have any ideas? Is there an easy way to re-cover the buttons while they are on the chair? Any other advice? I have no experience with this sort of craft, but I'm willing to learn!
