Care and cleaning To prolong the life of your awning please follow the below: - To remove dirt, brush dry fabric with soft brush (occasional hose may remove dust and some ingrained dirt). - Never scrub the fabric. - Immediately remove deposits of organic matter (soil, grass cuttings, leaf litter, bird droppings, vehicle exhaust, pollutants ets). - Remove any mildew as it appears on the fabric, first by brushing then by treating with diluited chlorine bleach (typically 1 part White king to 4 parts of water to achieve 1% available chlorine). Allow to dry in full sun then well remove residue. - Do not use strong bleaches such as "Pool Chlorine". - Do not use soaps, detergents, solvents or other liquid cleaners. - Store, pack or roll up only when clean and dry.
