What do you clean your awning with?

I've got some streaks that probably came from water on my awning. Does anyone have a recommendation on the best thing to clean it with? I was thinking of using Simple Green but I'd like to hear from the experts before I do that.

Thanks all

Simple Green is what I use.

I just spray Simple Green on both sides of the awning real good then roll the awning back up, letting the Simple Green soak in. After about 10 minutes I open the awning, then I use a long handled soft brush dipped in a bucket of water/dish soap and give it a good scrubbing, then rinse. Some areas I may use a little firmer hand brush if required. Seems to clean mine pretty good.

If you are in Canada, there is a fantastic product called Magic Boss which is sold in our trailer supply stores. I have never found anything that cleans the venal or awning better on a trailer.

We just use car wash and a long handle soft brush.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. Couldn't seem to find Magic Boss on Google or Amazon though. I think maybe I will try the others and see which does the best job. Y'all take care and thanks again.

Check the trailer manual or the awning manual. Someplace there is a warning about using any bleach on the awning.
At the Jayco rally a few years ago it was recommended that a dishwashing liquid such as Dawn be used. As suggested in another post, apply the Dawn and water solution, roll up the awning and go have a cup of coffee or other refreshment. Extend the awning, scrub with a soft brush and rinse.
My opinion is that it is better to live with a spot than to apply any bleach to the fabric.
