    Hello,

    I picked up this poncho online to use for camping and this weird substance was stuck to it almost like dried glue, think it is mold. Could I have some suggestions on how to get it off? If possible.

    It's the waterproofing , it dries out and flakes off after use . And sometimes it smells bad . You can reproof it for better water repellence . But it will still look flakey .

    Oh... I peeled some off because I thought it was mold. How can I re waterproof it?

    Thanks,

    Outdoor stores sell different products , tell them what your trying to reproof and see what they have to offer . It will still work somewhat even as is . You might be better off buying a new one , I'm sure you can find a new camo one at surplus stores , pretty cheap (25/40$) . Cause god knows what you'll have to pay for the reproofing spray . But this one is still good for lean to , wind break use , ground sheet use .
