    My tried and tested method..

    Bucket of warm water with a liberal squirt of washing up liquid and about a cupful of thin bleach .. and a soft broom or car washing brush.

    Roll out the awning .. brush and wash on both sides .. then while still wet and soapy roll it in.. leave for about 30 mins , have a cuppa, then unroll and rinse with fresh water.. job done..

    I can tell you how not to clean one. I used a pressure washer on my old one, made holes in it :Sad:

    :thumb: Many Thanks......
    Only possess thick bleach (only the best for my missus) so I would guess about 1/4 of that amount ......will give it a try, hope it gets rid of the green streaks:Eeek:

    So - roll it out - squirt with washing up liquid, and let nature do the rest whilst you drink beer:BigGrin:
