General or light cleaning

To clean Sunbrella while still on a boat, follow these simple steps:

  • Brush off loose dirt.
  • Hose down.
  • Prepare a cleaning solution of water and mild soap such as Ivory Snow, Dreft or Woolite (no detergents).
  • Use a soft bristle brush to clean.
  • Allow cleaning solution to soak into the fabric.
  • Rinse thoroughly.
  • Air dry.
  • May not require retreatment depending on the age of the fabric.

** If stubborn stains persist, you can use a diluted chlorine bleach/soap mixture for spot cleaning of mildew, roof run-off or other similar stains. (See our Stain Chart for specific recommendations).

Q: How do you maintain/service zips?
