Black streak remover

I used black streak remover on a dry awning, then scrubbed with a stiff bristle brush, and rinsed. Worked reasonably well.

Just tried the Simple Green method. Sprayed, rolled, drank a beer, unrolled, scrubbed, and it worked about 90%. Used pressure washer on medium setting to rinse. Only problem, scrubbed a little too hard while the awning was down and developed to pin holes right where the door and outside speaker were. Errrr. Seems the awning should be a little bit tougher than that.

We've discovered a mixture of this stuff called LA's Totally Awesome (available at your local dollar store) and bleach and water, mix it in a garden sprayer, let it soak 5 min or so use a long brush to gently scrub the really bad parts, the just spray it off with a garden hose. Our entire 'row' of campers has used this mixture with great success.

Sorry to hear about the pinholes, Jim. That bites. Maybe you could get some of that Camp Dry spray stuff that folks use on tents to keep water out. It's maybe worth checking out.

I am going to push back on the supports towards the tt while the awning is extended, this will give me better access to some of the awning. Larry

I use Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. It works like magic. Takes off dirt and mold too. The nice thing is you don't get lots of bleach water dripping down on your head. Honestly, this is the best tool I've found for cleaning the awning.

Sailor is on the money with Dawn. Your owners manual should say what is safe for your specific awning. Some awning material doesn't take to harsh chemicals. Dawn got everything off of mine.

Anything with bleach in it will cause the stitching to deteriorate even if it does not hurt the fabric itself. If you use any bleach, make sure that you rinse the awning really well.

This link has some really good information for both general cleaning and specific stains.
