Cleaning awning

Look, I'm not recommending this, at least not yet.

I decided to attack the mildew on the awning so I bought a spray bottle of Scrubbing Bubbles Mildew and Stain Remover ( with bleach ). Knowing that it contains bleach, I had the water hose standing by to rinse immediately.

I sprayed the underside of the awning and then closed it and opened it to distribute the solution and then attacked it with a long handle brush.

It was about then that I noticed that my Escape t-shirt had been re-designed and I quickly and thoroughly hosed the awning, the trailer and my RAV, which was next to the trailer.

I will report at some later date how the awning is holding up, but right now, I have to rinse my t-shirt.

Re: Cleaning awning

Hi: gbaglo...A pair of bleached out faded blue jeans with no knees and that shirt and don't tie up your shoes puts you "In like a dirty shirt". Mine OTOH changed from a nice blue to shades of "The colour purple" Alf for mold and mildew remover
