Over time, we realize that the canvas tent may collect dirt, dust, or mildew. Not to worry - it is the outdoors, after all! Here's a quick guide to cleaning and maintaining your canvas tent. Regular cleanings and inspections for mold and mildew buildup will keep your canvas tent in working order for years to come.
Remove Dust From Your Tent
Use the bristle brush (included with your campsite installation kit) and thoroughly brush the canvas, starting from the interior of the tent and working your way out. Be sure to pay close attention to any exceptionally dust-laden areas, like corners or between flaps.
Remove Mildew From Your Tent
If your canvas camping tent has fallen victim to mold and/or mildew deposits, you can effectively clean it with the Mold and Mildew Stain Remover that we provide in your Canvas Cleaning Kit. It is non-chlorine, biodegradable, and has no harmful vapors. One jar of concentrate makes three gallons of solution.
To use, spray the cleaning solution onto any mold or mildew-infested areas and allow it to sit for several minutes. Then you can scrub away any mold and mildew deposits with a sponge, paper towel, scrub brush or washcloth. Continue to repeat this process until your canvas tent has been completely purged of mold and mildew.
Protecting Your Tent from Mildew and Water Damage
Your Canvas Cleaning Kit also comes with a container of water repellent, which will help protect the canvas from water, soil, oil, bird droppings, or other environmental pollutants.
One container of water repellent concentrate makes two gallons of solution. It is non-solvent and non-silicon. To use, generously spray the solution the entire surface area of the outside of your tent and let dry.
