How do you get mildew out of a memory foam mattress topper?

it got slightly damp & then put into a garbage back during our move. I went to pull it out & it has mildew in several spots.

My Mother used to put lemon juice on mildew and then put it in the sun to dry. 'Bleach could be too strong--I don't think you can leave it on there very long
