Cleaning the Bunk Canvas
« on: May 18, 2012, 12:08:25 PM »
So who has a good way to clean the outside bunk canvas? I'm going to open them today and get on a ladder and do my best, but there is no " support when it's open to lean on so what do you do?

I always use an Aluminum A-frame type ladder and just move it around as I go. I would use a sponge mop or cloth type mop without any sharp hardware so I could reach to the center. For detergent I normally used Woolite since it is very mild. A quick rinse with the hose and it always looked bright and clean.
 This may be stating the obvious, but do not use a pressure washer. I had read on another forum where someone completely ruined their canvas with a pressure washer.
Not good.

Popper,

Kind of what I was thinking, going to the store later to pick up a few odds and ends have to add woolite and a sponge mop to my list. The mop should work for the awning as well.

Thanks,
Mike

I leave the beds tucked in and pull the canvas out and let it hang while i wash.  With the roof up of course.  When done I pull the beds out and set up and let dry.
