Now comes the key moment: if the case is good, not cheap, You can leave the cover for 20 minutes in the container with the water and bleach. If you think or know that your cover is of poor quality then it will be better than with a cloth or sponge to give it passes and rub it little by little. When you finish, clean the cover well with water and let it dry somewhere before using it.

Leave it inside for a long time and then take a brush and scrub well all over the cover without fear. Put it back in for a while. After all this you just have to remove it from the container and clean it with water and a cloth.
As we say, the previous ones are more effective, but if you do not have bicarbonate or bleach you can always use lemon with some dishwasher that you have on hand at home. Usually a worse thing is cleaned by being less aggressive but it is not so far behind at all.
