Cleaning Vinyl Tenting

Can anyone recommend a product that's both effective and safe to use to clean tree sap and bird droppings from the vinyl bunk tent tops? I've been told this is my job, as I can't do any of the heavy lifting and wanted to be under the trees.

Many of us popup and hybrid owners get Popup Gizmos for the canvas ends.
A side benefit of them is they keep the canvas clean and free from sap and bird poo.

Thanks, but it's a little too late for that. Anyway, that's just a different thing that would have to be cleaned, and since we are mostly in the shade, we really don't need the gizmos.

I use mineral spirits available any paint dept... it won't hurt the vinyl... but I do rinse it with some soapy water...

often in damp or humid weather I get some black mold on the vinyl... I use this available at Home Depot as it works the best I have found.
