I hand wash mine with soap and water with a rag and for heavy spots a pot scrubber

I've used this stuff with good results, but it's more expensive than soap and water:

Robot Check

The same company also makes a protectant to use after washing.

If it the newer TPO roof material, they do not recommend treating it.
Wash with soap and water only. Dawn dish wash was recommended to me.

The Protect-All Rubber Roof Cleaner? My local RV store has it, or you can do Amazon.

Weird. I used the Amazon link just to show the product, but I see the Canada only line... I've never bought it from Amazon, always at my local RV place. Odd indeed.
