    Woolite fabric cleaner liquid with a washclothe or SOFT bristle scrubbing brush! Don't forget to buy a LARGE can of waterprrofing spray. May want to buy TWO and coat it really well. Thoroughly dry it out, and I mean dry. Then it will be waterproof and clean.

    I just cleaned mine and used simple green and a brush. It worked awsome. Oh and if you do this use a towel to wipe down as you clean.

    I bought canvas cleaner at the camper store and it worked great! It was kind of a bleach formula. It took all the yellow and dark spots off the canvas. We have white canvas. I am still smelling a mildew in mine. We are airing it out and febreezed it but still smells. Any advice there??

    Most articles I've read, say to use Woolite of Dreft laundry detergent.

    I either put dry rid in or a few charcoal pieces..that absorbs odor, you could try it.
