Mildew on sofa cushions - sun line Que

Decided to post this here, cuz although this problem happened to my beautiful Que, I thought it might be a universal problem!

We live in sunny Northern California, and ordinarily we get little rain and have very low humidity, we experienced about 7 straight days of rain. When I ventured out to the Que to get my playing cards (!), I noticed some slight black spots on the cushions! They felt damp probably because I had closed the vents and windows because of the rain. My Que lives on the driveway all year, usually with a couple windows cracked open a bit.

To make a long story short, too late, how do I clean the cushions, remove the dark blue covers and try to wash and re-install? Leave covers on and place in sunshine? Spray with something? Any help appreciated"

Normaly bleach is a good choice to remove mold but on a blue fabric that is not an option.

Here is a site that give a lot of options for removing mold: Mold Removal, How to Kill Mold with Bleach, Borax, Vinegar

The choices are:

•Bleach
•Borax
•Vinegar
•Ammonia
•Hydrogen peroxide
•Detergent
•Baking soda
•Tea tree oil
•Grapefruit seed extract

I guess my REAL question was whether or not anyone had success removing and replacing the Que weird cushions within cushion design!

I thought the covers were zip off microfiber. Not sure how you wash microfiber though.

For the wonderful responses, I have successfully cleaned up my cushions and they look great! My next project is to remove the weird seating configuration in my side entry (se) Que and install a custom full size bed in its place, perhaps a dinette type or similar. Plan would place bed cross-ways along the whole front, get rid of weird, tiny shelf and making bed narrower so end result would be about 53" x 82", which is about width of full/double bed and length slightly longer than queen (80), tall husband, lol! This would allow the bed to be left "made-up" and still easy access in and out door! Anyone done similar?
