stains on canvas of pop-up
« on: September 24, 2017, 08:14:57 AM »
I have tried everything I have read about getting stains off my canvas on my pop-up. Looking for the one true idea that will work!

Mildew? Leaf mold? Grease? Plain old dirt?

Canvas can be cleaned somewhat with a bleach and detergent solution, using a soft brush to work it into the canvas and allowing 30 minutes of so of soak time. However, the canvas will have to be re-waterproofed thereafter.

The entire canvas can be replaced.  If the canvas needs other help, this may be an option.  I had great luck with Anchor Tent and Awning in Evansville, IN, but that was quite a few years ago.  My new one fit better than the original!

It's not a dumb question if you do not know the answer.
