Paint the underside of an awning?

I purchased a MH last year with mold stains on the underside of the awning. I have tried all sorts of methods to clean them but nothing has removed all the mold stains. I was thinking of painting the underside of the awning with some outdoor fabric paint such as

https://www.fabricspraypaint.com/pro...-spray-paint1/

Has anyone tried this product or other paints? Comments on the idea?

Thanks!

I have never used 'fabric paint' but if there is mold there, I doubt paint of any kind will stick.

I'd say give it a shot.
I looked at the product through the link, and it sounds pretty self explanatory. I think as long as you have the surface clean (stains can still be clean) then you're good to go. Worst case scenario, it won't stick, and you're out the $ and time of doing it.

Good Luck, and let us know how it turns out.

No, never tried LA's. Does it remove old mold stains?

You don't want to paint anything that's flexible like an awning. It's only a matter of time before it cracks and flakes off. Yeah, try the Totally Awesome. You may have to scrub a bit, but the mold will come off.

AWESOME from the $ store will work, it will remove wax on fiberglas campers, and paint on aluminum skinned campers if you scrub it

Somebody here once suggested tile ex. Spray it on, roll it up, sit for 10 minutes. Unroll rinse.
I did that last spring and it seemed to work well.

I recently had good results using Mr. Clean magiceraser pads. My awning had mold stains from last season. Just a little bucket of clear warm water, a step ladder, then dip pad in, ring it a little, and apply some elbow grease. It took about an hour but I was pleased with the results. Used one pad.
