How do you clean sunshade/canvas attached to a frame/canopy?

We go through a general and gentle cleaning that involves the following:

  • Brushing off loose dirt
  • Hosing it down
  • Preparing a cleaning solution of water and soap designed for canvas
  • Allowing the cleaning solution to soak into the fabric/material
  • Rinsing thoroughly until all soap residue is removed
  • Air drying
  • If stubborn stains persist, you can use diluted bleach/soap mixture for spot cleaning of mildew. For roof run-off or other similar stains, a strong de-greaser may be required
