    We had mould on ours and found a diluted solution of Milton fluid got rid of most, but as others have said, patio cleaner did a good job also...

    I applied the Fabsil on day with no wind taking care to avoid getting it on the windows .

    Is there any reason why ordinary washing-up liquid and hot water cannot be used?

    I have tried ordinary detergents and they don't kill the green or mould .

    I wouldn't want to use the washing machine after that had been in it (on the assumption is was even still workng).

    I put spray dodgers in the washing machine, having done the resit of the canvass covers in the bath - they shrank! (not much but sufficient that some of the snap fastener fittings would no longer meet up with their twins on the hull.

    However another vote for patio magic and Fabsil Gold.

    Thanks but I should have made it clear that my sprayhood doesn't have mould; it's just grubby from airborne dirt. In which case, would washing-up liquid do?

    The Doff patio cleaner from Aldi is the same as Patio Magic

    ITYWF that Wet and Forget is more concentrated but also more expensive

    Homebase sell a similar product but it is more dilute. Ready to use in fact. It looks cheaper but works out more expensive

    Just a thought.... Probably wise to refit the canopy while it's still wet/damp. otherwise it can shrink and be a real bugga to refit.

    Once it's fully dry then remove to reproof
