cleaning a tent

What do you guys use to clean your tents? I got mine out and there is some mildew on the walls.

Re: cleaning a tent

I would probably take it to a laundromat that has commercial machines and put vinegar in the load and let air dry. If that did not work, I'd try a little bleach but only in a large load commercial washer. Good luck.

Re: cleaning a tent

I believe it is nylon. It is not canvas.

Re: cleaning a tent

I have always used dish liquid and suds it up ,using a soft brush . Hose it out ,then let the breeze dry the material . Good job on a sunny spring day !

Enjoy each day afield as if it were your last.....take the time to take it all in !
