    I put a scant egg cup of bleach to the water,but wear protective eye guards in case of splashes.

    A solution of bio washing powder/liquid wet the surface and roll it back in, leave to soak for a bit, wind it out and hose off, job done.

    I use washing up liquid with a cup of thin bleach in a bucket of warm water

    brush BOTH sides, wind in... leave for 30 mins, unwind and hose off

    Mine was in such a state I was considering replacing the fabric. Thought that I would try a drastic measure, pressure washer from below and above (standing on roof). Now as good as new, no damage and only took 20 mind
