Mildew / Moss / Mold

Hey guys, I bought a truck that has been sitting under a tree for a number of years, and it has all of the above on the plastic parts of the grille. What's the best way to remove it without hurting the paint or chrome on the plastic? All I've done so far is wash it with Dawn, and it took it off the metal parts, but it is really stuck to the plastic. Thanks in advance!

May want to test in an inconspicuous area but on my boat I used to use bleach water on my cushions. That mixed with sunshine took it right off.

Thanks for the advice, guys. I'm a little leary to bleach it, not sure how the paint would handle it. I may try the CLR idea, though. Thanks again.
