Default How to get rid of mold on Garden Hose?

Anyone have a solution to get rid of those ugly black spots that
accumulate on a hose that is wrapped around one of those wind-up
devices? I guess water drips in/around the hose and seeing as it's
probably darker in the middle/end, the hose gets ugly and uglier after
you pull the first 25 feet out. The outer length stays nice, and this
hose is maybe 2 years old... no leaks, cracks or whatever, but the
missus wants me to clean it.

Thought about bleach, but will that actually attack the vinyl and make
it sticky? Looking for a solution that costs less than tossing the
hose and buying a new one when other than the black spots... there's
nothing wrong with it.

TIA! Mike
