My caravan awning is dirty after one month in the Kruger. It has seedstains and bird droppings on it.

Any advice on how to get it clean.

Hi

Tentco has a canvas cleaner product which is available from Takealot and Outdoorwarehouse has a product called Maxons Canvas Cleaner.

Just never use a hard brush, only a soft brush/cloth and don't overdo it as you do not want to damage the waterproof sealant.  Just a gentle wash and rub.

Gebruik Woollite wat jy by Checkers koop.Ek was myne met dit en kom silwerskoon.Spuit seile nat,gooi n doppie vol in emmer water en was met sagte besem,spuit af en laat droog op wasgoedlyn.Waterdigtheid kom niks oor nie.

Die voëls hier by Eiland besk¥t my voorstoep seil na behore.

Toe ek tent opslaan, het ek nie mooi gekyk nie. Nou bemors hulle die stoeptent wat reg onder hulle knoppiesdoringboom staan. 

Hulle maak deur die dag beurte om ons te besk¥t. Spreeus in die oggend, katlagters middeldag en boskraai vroegmiddag. Vlieg ook nie weg as jy hom jaag nie. Hy los in elk geval sy bolletjie as hy wegvlieg.

Soms klink dit soos reën.

So, ek moet stoeptent se dak was as ons weer eendag tuis is. Tussentyd spuit ek maar so elke 2 weke met die hoëdruk spuit die ergste mis af.

Dankie vir die raad op hierdie draad.

Jin do you dilute it for the tent?

After all your recommendations I bought some and it worked wonders on my weed eater when I serviced it. Looks and cuts like new!

Bought at West Pack in Joburg but since seen varieties in Kaap Agri and PnP.

Ek het canvas cleaner gebruik....het nice gewerk. 

 

Ander vraag: gee pine gel nie n reuk af aan jou tent seil nie? Die oorspronklike reuk daarvan is nie baie aangenaam vir my nie

WAARSKUWING:

Kampeer is aansteeklik en verslawend 😁

Don't use any form of detergent on canvas as you will never get it waterproof again. Just high pressure plain water. No brushing or rubbing.

On my tent roof which is made from TenCate material I use hot water and a brush. I soak the stain marks with hot water and then spray / brush it off. This material is standard for roofing on Jurgens tents since 2012 and it is like a plastic material which is garanteed for 15 years. If you are going to replace your canvas roof use this material. It is available from Hayford Traders in Midrand.

Groete,
Paul

Thanks for warning Paul.

Does a pressure cleaner not remove the 'plastic material' ?

Dankie Willem. Dit is nou slegte nuus. Ek wonder of iemand hulle n' offer gemaak het wat hulle nie kon weier nie.

Groete,
Paul

Rich, on canvas there is no "plastic material"

Your 2015 Exclusive's tent roof is the same as mine. Hot water, soak and brush off. NO Soap!

Jurgens het die invoer van hulle kleur schema en tiepe materiaal beperk tot Howling Moon. Die materiaal en all hulle canvas kom van die Nederland aff en nou ook TenCate, net deur Howling Moon.

Bell vir Howling Moon hulle sal seeker nog TenCate kan verskaff?

Ek het TenCate by Hayford teen R320 / meter x 2400mm gekoop in 2016.

Groete,
Paul
