Even then a lot of dirt will get on your awning. Therefore, spring is ideal if you want to clean the canvas. Which day do you choose?

Professional sunscreen cleaner

Do not destroy the cloth by using aggressive cleaning agents. However stubborn the stains are, do not use those products. Choose a professional sunscreen cleaner. But what about stubborn stains such as green deposits? Will they disappear with that? Isn't soda better?

Green deposit sunshade

This way you prevent new attacks. Do you see green deposits again? After an impregnation treatment, lukewarm water is sufficient to remove it again. You don't even need a sun protection cleaner. Some tips regarding green deposits:

  • Good protection makes dirt adhere less well

Cleaning sunscreen with soda

Does your neighbor always clean everything with soda? In the bathroom, that may not be a problem. However, do not use soda for your sun cloths. It may seem like such a useful product, but I strongly advise against it. Green soap and soda leave a greasy layer on your cloth. Fungi and algae don't mind at all. They attach great importance to that. Obviously that's not what you want.

Never clean sunscreen green soap

There are always people who clean their sunscreens with green soap. That is very unfortunate. Of your time and also of your canvas. You will have to clean again soon. Algae and fungi attach themselves to the greasy layer that is left behind by this soap. Green soap is a great product, but not suitable for cleaning sunscreens.

Sunshade maintenance

Is there much-needed maintenance? What's on the screen? A screen that has not been maintained for a long time often causes:

  • Dust and sand, after long neglect also something or a lot attached to the canvas
  • Fatty deposits due to soot and exhaust gases
  • Algae, mosses and leak marks
  • bird pop
  • fungi

Sunscreen Impregnating Agent

If your cloth is completely clean, use a professional impregnating agent. Then you can go ahead with your sun protection for years to come. Is there dirt present? Just use a little water and you'll get the dirt out in no time.
