"Make sure you can let it dry before rolling up. Both sides"

I can roll mine up dry and when it rains, it gets wet inside and mildews. Does yours stay dry inside? Cleaning lasts for a very short time because it rains a lot here.

I don't have much of a problem with that. I have seen where people modify litre soda bottles to fit overthe ends when it is rolled. I am sure somewhere on this forum you cn find instruction

I use Full Timers choice Awning cleaner. Put this in a 2 gallons pump sprayer. Spray both sides and then roll up for a few hours. Scrub with a car wash brush and it is clean.

I apply the bleach/soap solution with a window washing pad like this Unger Pro | 14 Inch Performance Grip Scrubber | Home Depot Canada on a long extension pole. After that, I use Hertel Plus and a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser to clean the remaining dirt and stains.

Bleach and water work for me. No particular ratio.

Use bleach with garden sprayer let sit then scrub with truck brush and long handle for good high quality awnings made from canvas soap and water only

Palmolive Oxy dish soap and water. Any mildew gets treated with a 5:
1 water/bleach mix and rinsed with water.

Another vote for the bleach/water solution. After spraying it down I roll it up for about 15-20 minutes, then unroll and hose it off. Works great.

I use the siding mildew cleaner in the bottle you connect to a garden hose. Spray it on and rinse after 10 minutes.

I've been known to use my automotive soap or bleach and water mix if mildewy. No issues.
