    It may have gotten into the rubber and you may not be able to get it out. If it is on the bottom only, keep using it. Rinse it in vinegar and let it dry and that should kill off any remaining mold spores that bleach doesn't kill, just lessens the stain.

    I put mine in washer machine on cold with a little lysol floor cleaner. No laundry detergent. Hot water won't hurt it either.

    The mold gets into the rubber itself. You can try soaking it in hot water, vinegar (white) and baking soda. Let it sit until the water gets cold. If the stains remain, replace the mat.

    Easiest way is to just go out and get a new one....not expensive and not worth all this cleaning with all these chemicals....
