Underside of awning

Wondering how to get the underside of awning cleaned. It's very dirty I can't believe they make the underside white. My neighbor sprays it with simple green, rolls it up to set for half hour then sprays it off. This didn't work for me, impossible to get clean when you can't apply pressure to other side.

A mixture of clorox and dish soap in a tank sprayer spray it on roll it up for a half hour and rinse may have to use a soft brush on a long handle to scrub a little.

bleach water, about a 20% mix,........ almost no scrubbing needed, NO hard scrubbing,...... then rinse

I too dilute simple green. Apply with long handle scrub brush, Roll it up for a few and then use same long handle scrub brush on the unrolled awning. Rinse clean, good as new.

As fella10 says......Bleach mixed with water.....(I brush mixture on, roll up awning for 1/2 hr or so, unroll, rinse off with water)....Viola!.....clean.

Would seem to me that the bleach solution dripping on you,running down your arms, and splashing on your freshly waxed sides wouldnt be a good thing.Mine can stay dirty!

spray on with a $10 pump garden sprayer(and don't let it drip on you),..... 15-20 minutes, rinse off,... that easy, .....or you can try some of the other methods mentioned

I use the bleach/water mix first, then I use Hertel Plus and a Mr Clean Magic Eraser.
