Spray it with Tilex mold/mildew remover bathroom cleaner. Roll up for 15-30 minutes. Unroll, rinse and allow to dry. All done.


This is the best I have found. I also heard about this on the forums so it wa a plus. I normally spray it, roll it up and have a cup of coffee. Unroll it and spray it as he says. Depending on how bad it is i do it again the next day.

I have also done this at a camp ground when it starts to look messy. Normally do it first thing in the morning while the sun is not out, then after it is rinsed it dries really good with the sun out !

IF you use a pressure washer to clean or rise, use extreme caution around the thread at the seam where the material enters the track on the edge of the roof. Even on low pressure it can destroy the thread.

Just cleaned my awning today. I wet, hit it with some simple green, and rolled it up for 15 mins. As an avid home brewer, I especially liied this the advice to have a beer during this time. When i unrolled and sprayed it down it looked great. I sure it would not have gone as well had I skipped the beer.

Bought a used camper and could not tell the awning was supposed to be white some dawn dish soap and magic sponge and 20 mins of wiping later viola it looked show room new. The previous owner who boaght the camper back thought it was a new awning.

Ok, so I had the Tilex all ready to go. DH had bought the Eraser Magic sponges. They won hands down! No scrubbing required and the awning underside is WHITE. One sponge did the whole awning. The Tilex was used on the casita top and required scrubbing but worked well. We will be using the sponges from now on.

we have mildew stains on ours. Does the tilex or the bleach/dish soap combo work better on this, or is it a matter of personal preference? We tried last fall w/ an awning cleaner (maybe camco) and couldn't get the mildew marks off. It looks bad for a TT only a year old to have this. I want it gone from my awning.
