Rubber Tee pad maintenance

So we've got a course here, almost entirely wooded with evergreens so sunlight never hits the tee pads to dry them off. As it is, the rubber tee pads have gotten moldy and slick. Has anyone else out there run into this problem and if so do you have any great remedies for it?

Broom it off, spray with a pressure sprayer (if thats possible), flip the pad?, some chemical has to work...

Goo-Gone! That stuff cleans everything, but it'd be alot of scrubbing....

Orange/citrus degreaser and a stiff brush and you should be all set. Flip them over once a year too.

Yeah power washing is not an option. We're talking way out in the woods, no water sources available. I was considering the orange/citrus degreaser stuff may try it on one soon. as far as flipping them, if the tops actually have mold growing on them from moister/no sun I'm worried the bottoms will be even worse. The pads are sitting directly on the forest ground.

Any other ideas out there? Anyone ever had to do something like this before?

Maybe you could cover them w/ carpet?
I've played a course that had carpet teepads, and they seemed to work OK...

I like this idea. Maybe attach a rectangular pad of astroturf the size of the teepads. Or maybe replace the pads with those rubber pads with the hexagonal holes in them. Sorry, I know "change the teepads" is kind of a crappy answer, but it sounds like it's just not a good place for rubber teepads.
