Canvas cleaners

Postby jnksmommy » Mon Jul 29, 2019 3:03 pm

Looking for recommendations on canvas cleaner. I've tried a few different brands and they just don't work. We have a 10 year old hybrid and canvas over the beds are starting to look a little rough. Anyone use something that works well?

I use laundry detergent and water with a brush to clean my boat canvas, and then treat it with 303 protectant after it dries.

If it's sunbrella, you can add a cup of bleach to the mix if there's a lot of mold or mildew on it. Just test it out first to make sure it doesn't stain.

I’ve had good luck with simple green and elbow grease on my boat canvas and old popup camper. Then I treat with starbrite waterproofer once dry.
