The process I used was to dilute the concentrated Awesome, spray it on the underside (make sure to wear safety goggles and old clothes), climb on top of my camper and spray it on the topside of the awning, roll up and let it sit for 30 minutes. Unroll the awning and wipe off with a mop and water. I used a ladder and one of those green scouring pads for the tough areas like this corner. Rinse top and bottom with a hose when done cleaning. Let dry and roll up the awning.
That looks Awesome!

Have you tried spraying it with something like Armorall after it dries to see of the mildew doesn't come back?

I'm going to have to buy. It looks like it did a wonderful job, better then when I use a bleach mixture.

That's an idea I've not tried but worth considering.

I find it works better than the bleach mixture I used to use.

I unroll about a foot and use warm water and Mr Clean erasers ..
and then do another and another foot
and then the same on the underside , usually takes about 5-10 erasers , but works great

I've been using Tilex Mildew Cleaner with Bleach to clean mine but Awesome is much cheaper at the dollar store. Will give that a try next time. Thanks for the posts.

I have found that (Dollar General) Mean Green Mold and Mildew Remover works great! Hit the tough spots with a magic erasure. I use the 303 AreoSpace Formula to prevent mold/mildew.
another tip: if you have the black streaks down the side of the camper the Campco Black Streak remover sucks, spray on full strength Simple Green and they melt away with a little help from a magic erasure they are gone completely.
