While cleaning the awning, you should always consult the manufacturer or the manual for the awnings to determine if there are any specifications that should be taken into account while cleaning the awnings.

In the case that you are unable to find a commercial cleaner that can be used to clean the canvas awnings, you can always make a solution at home. Vinegar and baking soda are two of the common ingredients that are used to make your own cleansers, as well as citrus products which are thought to have a high level of power while cleaning.

You can use many types of products, or just water with high power cleaners. These power cleaners make use of steam or other types of products that can be used while cleaning. You can use these products on light colored awnings, without having to worry about staining the awnings with the solutions that are used to clean the awnings. This is an effective way to use natural cleaners that can reduce your carbon footprint, while maintaining the appearance of awnings.

How often should you clean the awnings? You can clean the awnings once per season, but ensure that they are able to completely dry to reduce the chances of developing mildew through the awning, if the awning has been retracted while it is still wet. This should be avoided and you should allow the awnings to dry completely before retracting.
