Sorry to hear that. Mine is almost perfectly white again. Wish I had pics. I will admit that I scrubbed the he!! out of the awning to clean it.

cleaner

I just discovered Wet and Forget, love it, works great on my house siding also. They make a great product for showers also. Bought mine on Groupon.

There are many vinyl cleaners available along with mold/ mildew removal products available. I use the same I have used on my boats for over 55 years.
Don't leave us hanging like that...please do tell what product you have been using for over 55 years.

I had been using a Star Bright marine product. About 2 years ago the detailer at the marina gave me a bottle of X-14 to try. It is in a blue quart bottle and costs less than $10.

Yeah, I just spray it on and roll up the awning for about 15 minutes.
Normally I use Clorox Cleanup in the green bottle, but have used half and half regular bleach and water.

I wouldn't wear clothes you care about while spraying the awning.

The awning on my old camper was all white, top and bottom. Hated that thing! Anyway, about 3 times per season we used Mr Clean Magic Erasers and they always worked great to remove mildew and other stains.

Before using the Magic Erasers, I did use bleach and it worked well, but more than once I damaged clothes after getting drips on them.

Ok. So here is an update on my awning. The "Awesome" did not work for us so I used what I used to clean up our pop up. The DW bought some "Mean Green Mildew Destroyer". You can get it a Dollar General. It does contain bleach. I used a sponge to apply on the stains. A lot of them disappeared right away but the stubborn ones were not that easy. After sponging the darker areas I rolled up the awning. Then I hosed down the side of the TT to make sure if any of that stuff got on any painted surfaces it was washed off right away. I waited about 30 minutes, unrolled the awning and almost all of the stains were gone. I rinsed off the awing with a hose, top and bottom. If you knew where the darker spots were you could still see a little of where they once were. Overall I am very happy with the results. I will update in about a month when we are able to get our TT out of storage and camp again.

I have always used bleach and Dawn dish soap. Spray it on the underside......roll it up and let it sit for about 30 minutes........open it up and hose it off..
