Thumbs up Cleaning canvas covers !!!!!!!

We have Ameritex covers on our boat. Over the past few months, they were showing A L O T of dirt, where water had pooled after a rain.

I just read on their web site how to clean them, and make them look like new !!!!

Take a bar of IVORY soap, and shred it with a cheese grater, put contents in a 5 gal. bucket, dissolve the soap with hot water, use a scrub brush, drink a few beers (my suggestion), rinse, let dry, and re-install.

It seemed to remove a few mold spots that were on it as well.

Good luck !!!!!

Thanks for the tip.

Many people don't know, that you can also get waterproofing spray that will bring back the water repellency on many of the sumbrella type materials as well.

Where there is a will, many times there is a way.

Question

What waterproofing do you suggest??

I don't think that Scotchguard is acceptable is it ??

Can what youi are talking about be bought in a local store, or do you have to order it ??

Thanx

i would check wal-mart, any of the water repellant sprays for canvas tents will work.
