Product to clean awning

After 6 months in storage there are unsightly stains on the underside of my awning caused by rain seeping in from the edges when rolled up.

Two questions:

#1 what is the best product and method to manually clean it?

#2 how to stop the water from doing this when rolled up?

I used this. Worked well, but you need to rinse it off awning and sides after cleaning.

Clean with Simple Green, let dry, then use Wet and Forget as directed on label. Easy Peasy.

Just a thought.......

Is there any way to bag the ends of the awning when itís rolled up for long periods of time......obviously like in storage as you describe? You seem to indicate youíre convinced the water gets in from the ends.

Just sayiní

Iíve seen where some folks take a 2litre Pop bottle and cut the top off and slit the side to be able to slide on each end while rolled up. Donít think this will work for moving down the road but might help for long term storage.

Mold removed from awning

I used a product from Lowe's the you use to clean the mold from Vinyl siding.

Comes with a end of the hose sprayer. It has a clinging agent in the solution
so it will cling to the surface of the awning.
If you have a B.J's Club near you, B.J.s has two gallons for about 1/2 the price as what Lowes charges. Located near the light bulbs & motor oils in store.

It is the nature of the beast. Just one of those things you have to deal with. I use Mr. Clean or Spic 'n Span with a telescopic soft bristle brush to clean it as needed. "Bagging" the ends seems like it would be futile. How would you fasten the bags around the awning roller tube? One trip down the road and it would look like a garbage truck.
