trisodium phosphate. It's a great additive to any cleaning solution. I used it to wash down the kitchen walls in the stick house. Just be sure to do a good rinse.

Where do you find TriSodium Phosphate? Does it have a common name? Thanks, I am going to try mine in the spring before we head out. Amazing how grungy it got in one year.

You should be able to get TSP at any hardware store. It generally comes in a box and is identified as "TSP".

I don't use the TSP trick.

5 gallon pail about 3/4 full.
1 cup of bleach
1 cup of cloths detergent.
I brush on and roll up the awning for 15 minutes.
Unroll awning brush on again. Hose off.. It is amazing.
Car wash brush with extension handle.

If just water and bleach it, evaporates to quickly. That is what i understand the cloths soap helps slow down. Plus rolling it up helps coat the entire fabric and let the bleach work for a period of time. I am amazed everything i do it..

O yea. Use an old t-shirt, you could stain your favorite one by getting dripped on.. lol.

So, I have another question regarding the bleach. Is that going to affect the colors of the awning like it does your T shirt?

Tilex orScrubbing Bubbleswith bleach work quite well. I never tried spraying then the roll up trick. I'll try it in the spring. When using the bleach method just don't let it dry on or it will damage the awning fabric.

No, Has not affected mine neither. One time i rolled it up and got a phone call. It dried. That didn't hurt anything either, i just reapplied and rinsed off..

It really does work. I am amazed. And i hardly ever find a spot that needs special attention from the brush and soap. That awning looks new and smells good to boot.. lol.

I think the whole trick to this is the TIME.. Time for the Bleach to eat any mold. And the soap to loosen any dirt spots.
