Cleaning your boat canopy is a task that should be carried out on a regular basis if you wish to keep it in good condition. Let us discuss the best way to go about cleaning it effectively.

Step 1: Rinsing

Start off by rinsing the canopy with plenty of clear water so as to remove any loose dirt. You may use a hose if you have the possibility to connect one with a water supply. Otherwise you may dispense the water using buckets. You may need a ladder to reach the top of the canopy as well.

Step 2: Scrubbing

Next, fill a bucket with warm water and some detergent. Using a soft brush, start scrubbing the boat canopy so as to remove the more persistent dirt and any stains.

Step 3: Remove Soap Residuals

Next, rinse the canopy again with clear water so as to remove the soapy residuals and any dirt that has been loosened after the scrubbing.

Step 4: Checking for Stains

Check the boat canopy for any stains or places which are still dirty, even after the previous scrubbing. Such areas should be treated with a mixture of bleach and water and scrubbed more thoroughly.

Step 5; Rinse and Dry

Give the boat canopy a final rinse and allow to dry in the sun. It is best to choose a sunny day for this job.
