Awning cleaning

Recently purchased. 2013 Cougar. Nice trailer, clean inside. But who ever had it before never bothered to clean the awning. It either stained or mildew. Any suggestion on how to get it cleaned. I don't see any bad spots or tears, just neglect.
Thanks in Advance
Doc Evins

Tilex mold/mildew remover from wal mart. Can get it in a 1 gallon jug with sprayer built in. Just open the awning and spray it down then roll it up for 15 minutes or so. Unroll it and rinse it off. You can hit stubborn spots with a soft brush before rolling it up but most will come off without the need of brushing it. Wear old clothes and don't get it in you eyes.

There is also a mold and mildew remover I have heard about that is available at Home Depot and Lowes (and possibly other places too) that does an excellent job of killing the fungus stuff, but I can't remember what its name is at the moment.

Mold Armor I believe is what you are thinking of. Somebody on here recommended it to me. It's awesome stuff, says me.

I agree on Mold Armor, it's fantastic. About the only product in a bottle that actually does exactly what it says it will! Spray it on, let it sit, rinse it away and it's clean!

We had the same problem with our 2013 new to us rv. I tried cleaning it and did not work. Thanks for posting this and I will try some of the suggested products.

Thanks to all for your suggestions and advice. I purchased the Mold Armor from Hone Depot. Applied it to awning, retracted the awning for approx hour. Reopened and used a power washer (1600psi) and now have a very clean awning. 95% of all the mildew and mold gone. Will repeat the process in a month or so. That should complete the process. I agree Mold Armor works.
Thanks Again All.

Best thing to use is Outdoor Bleach. You can get it at Home depot. It not only gets rid of it but has something in it that helps it from coming back so fast. Works great on the entire camper!
