    Nah, not laughing Tony, it's just that I did mine last week mate..... The top is fine for cleaning but getting the underside clean whilst staying dry is a hoot :Laughing::Laughing:
    As you say......... Every little helps mate :Laughing:

    On a serious note for a second......
    I once cleaned a particularly filthy awning on our Hymer when we first got it using Biological Washing Powder... Just mixed some up in a bucket of water and scrubbed away at the fabric. Came up a treat (and smelled nice too :BigGrin:).
    Give it a go Tony and see how you get on.... Don't forget to rinse if off thoroughly though.....

    Hi Tony

    Well, I don't use vinegar on the awning but it cleans lime scale from kettles .. :Laughing:

    Mix up a mild solution of washing up liquid and about a cupful of household bleach in a bucket.
    Scrub the awning and while still wet roll it back up.
    Leave for 30 mins then unroll and wash off with a hose.. Result.. awning cleaned on BOTH sides ..
