So a few weeks ago I threw a bag full of slings (dyneema, nylon), draws, harness in the bed of my truck under what I though was a watertight bed cover. So the cover wasn't watertight and the bag has been slurping up water and my softgoods now smell musty.
I replaced the slings (thought they were a few years old - they were from 2010 so it was time anyway), washed the harness per mfg guidelines, and dried it all out. Retired the slings and dogbones.
Here is my question: what affect does mildew have on
(A) nylon (B) dyneema
Note there is no visible mold or mildew on anything. Just kinda stinky
