Canvas water stains and how to remove

Looking for some suggestion on how to remove water stains from the canvas on our Rockwood 296 pop up canvas. Seen plenty on how to maintain the canvas witb the 303 product line but want to remove the stains before applying the protectant. Thanks.

I would suggest starting with mild detergent then working your way up. Try dish soap, then some oxy clean, then possibly lestoil. If none of this works, then you can try some harsher vinyl cleaner.

I use the Gizmo covers for this exact reason. I just do not like the stains that the leaves and things cause on the bunk ends.

Vin.

We used to use Fantastic and the Oxy Clean. Both worked well. We did find though, no matter how vigilant we were, we still got stains. They became a fact of life.

So true. All you can do is try your best to keep it down to a minimum.
