Cleaning the awning

Well it's about time to clean my awning. I looked at it this morning and not only is dusty but very dirty. Never done this before, does any one have any secrets on what to use for the cleaning? Thanks

I'm not sure. Mine has gotten dirty and moldy from being rolled up in the same position for so long. I've been able to knock some of that dirt off but, it's hard to reach out there far enough to physically remove the crud. It would be great if there was a product that I could hook to the end of my garden hose that would spray on cleaner from several feet away. But, I haven't found one yet that looks like it would work.

I clean and let it dry every time I use it. Allways get all the dirt and leaves off the top and bugs off the bottom. Never roll it dirty. If not washed at camp then as soon as we get home.

This has worked the best for me
1/2 cup clorox
1/2 cup dawn licquid
1 gal. water
spray on with a pump sprayer top side as well as under
roll awning back up let sit for 1/2 hr.
unroll spray lightly with water scrub with a long handled brush some to get those unwilling spot's cleaner
rinse well let open to dry and see if she look's like new
Good luck, Mike
