Awning mold

While in TX, we developed that black mold. Once we got here in AZ., DW suggested I use Chlorox bleach GEL. It worked great! Just start on the lower end, spray an area no bigger than 2 sq ft., at a time, wipe the mold off - very little rubbing necessary. I hosed it down good as I moved up the awning.

My two beer method: Buy a gallon of Clorox Clean-up. Spray the whole underside of the awning (2 gallon pressure sprayer works well), roll it up, drink a beer. Unroll awning and hose it down. Drink another beer for a job well done!

Use 'Wet & Forget' after the awning dries. It will help to prevent the mold and mildew for weeks. I used it last year and the awning stayed clean (no mold/mildew) for the rest of the season. Follow the instructions. I haven't opened the HTT yet and won't for a few weeks so I am anxious how it faired over the winter. The stuff is pretty cool!
