Default Mildew removal: Any Suggesstions

I have some mildew on stucco and was wondering if anyone could suggest a cure for this. I've pressure washed but it keeps coming back. Any help appreciated.

Thanks, SHB

Get some liquid chlorine (12% bleach)from a pool supply house. Spray it on, let it sit for a minute or so, then pressure wash the area. I do my soffit and fascia (s?) every year and it keeps it looking new. Caution.....Liquid Chlorine will kill grass, plants, etc....

after pressure washing, spray it with fungicide. It will wear off eventually but you won't have to pressure wash as often as without. And if you reapply often enough you won't have to pressure wash other than for dirt.

Yea what was said earlier, use chlorine, but use on a day with a little wind, No wind and you will foam at the mouth literally.

I have had good luck (on painted siding) with a product called Jomax. Liquid stuff, comes in jugs of different sizes, you have to mix it with bleach and water and spray it on with a bug/garden sprayer of some kind, then rinse it off. But it works good - supposedly keeps the mildew from coming back so soon. Not perfect, but the best I have found. You can get it at the big box home improvement stores, and I've even found it at Wally World. Kinda pricey, about $15-20 a gallon, but it had worked for me. Also, if you just Google "exterior Mildewcide", you can find a bunch of advice/homemade recipes.
