Updateon cleaning tent:
Set up tent without extending legs.
I use a pressure washer!! Hose it down, spray spots with Simple Green (Full strength) or laundry stain remover, long handled brush, brush cleaner into spots. In a bucket mix simple green for general cleaning with warm water, and using long handled brush apply this to tent top= all over. let set for a few minutes- 5-10. Then using pressure washer, hose it down again, until no soap residue remains. Let dry in sun 24-48 hrs before packing away. I do this every fall, after my last show. I also pack moth balls with it, to prevent little chewing critters from ruining tent and roller bag. Every spring, I unpack and set up to air out- spray seams with waterproofing.
Dawn, the original blue dawn is highly effective for removing any grease. Great all purpose cleaner. I contacted light dome for info on mold spots. A mild bleach wash and a very good rinse will do it Mine cleaned up really nice.
Another trick is to use a a mild bleach mixture and wash the whites in the sun using a brush. Then rinse real well. Whiter than white.
Just make sure the tent is totally dry before putting away. Any moisture will grow mold.
I set my tent up on a sunny day and with a garden hose, hose it down to remove the loose dirt and then I use a cleaner I get at the Dollar Tree, "Awesome" Yes, the dollar tree and it is a dollar for about 1 quart of this liquid cleaner. A friend of mine cleans carpets and he uses it for spot remover over the stuff they give him as it leaves no residue and cleans pretty much anything up. I dilute it 50% in a spray bottle and using a brush where necessary I clean the tent. Then I rinse it real good and let dry in the sun. Not the most important thing for me, I go to a sporting goods store and purchase a good tent water repellent and spray all the seams. Both outside and in and that prevents water leaking in the rain. Hope this helps.
