How to remove mildew/mold from areas inaccessible to brushing or scrubbing

Hi!

I have a SpotBot cleaner that has built-up mold/mildew stains inside the hose and inside the plastic waste receptacle - I cannot get a brush or scrubber inside either of those places to remove the mildew. Is there some chemical solution that would work without brushing or scrubbing? I've tried soaking the receptacle in warm soapy water and shaking it; I've tried running it through the dishwasher (it has a small pour spout, but it's not possible to get a brush inside and around the inner parts to clean the walls). I've also tried sucking up clean warm water into the hose, and while some dirt and grime has come out, it's still caked on in places.

Any advice? Thanks in advance!

Try some bleach and water with a bit of soap to help it cling. 1 part bleach to 3 parts water. Pour it in, agitate, rinse...repeat as required.
