Unhappy Mold on Rough Out

Let me try this again. I really need an opinion on this, as I've heard about five different solutions. My saddle has white round blooms that smell like cucumber on the underside of the fenders. I have been told to use:
Murphy's Oil Soap
Bleach diluted with water
Isopropyl Alcohol 12-15%
Diluted Dish Soap

Please tell me which I should use. I've never dealt with mold on the rough side of leather before.

Ended up using some Lysol, then cleaning with Bickmore Suede and Nubuck. Seemed to work.

I was going to say Lysol. I've also used straight white vinegar on mold and that works well too!
