How to Clean Your RV Awning: 9 Products to Make It Easier

#4 – Bleach

Campers used any number of mild bleach products (the brand was unimportant); they applied it to a scrub brush for greater ease of use; they then used a power washer to rinse away the bleach afterward.

#6 – Water and Vinegar

Several campers used a mixture of white vinegar & water; many added that the most effective technique was to pour it on the awning while it was open, roll it back up and then wait approximately 30 minutes. They’d then unroll it to give it a hand-scrub with a brush and afterward fully rinse.

In addition to cleaning, this was effective to stop grime and mold buildup too.

Using a Swiffer allowed campers to clean tough-to-reach areas.
