How do you clean your awning

I have tried the pour cleaner from the top of the TT on awning and roll it up. Let it set and open it up and rinse off but this just don't get it clean. What is you method for cleaning your awning ?

I use a soft extendable auto wash brush with RV wash from a step ladder. The underside can be done without the ladder. Once dry I use an auto windshield washer ( foam pad side) on an extension to apply Aerospace 303 every 3-4 washings.

How Do You Clean Your Awning

I used half bleach and half water. I had a spray bottle that sprays upside down. I sprayed sections of the awning, let it sit a few minutes, then used a sponge mop and bucket, and wiped it off. It came out perfectly white.

I may be wrong but I thought I read a tip here or somewhere else that one part bleach to 12 parts water worked well. As mentioned above, spray it on, let it set about 15 minutes and rinse it off. My memory of the 12:1 must be off a bit. Good luck. I will have to do mine, soon.

My awning instructions said quarter cup bleach and quarter cup dish liquid in 5 gal water. I used soft auto brush wit extension pole....works great. I do after every trip. Make sure you can let it dry before rolling up. Both sides

this may come across as a dumb question, but; will a bleach solution hurt the colors on a colored awning?

The bleach never effected the color and will prevent mildew. The directions come directly from the manufactuer manual that my dealer provided with my trailer, purchased new.
