    How to clean canvas

    Afternoon all,
    I am currently doing some work to my jayo camper and have noticed some slight mould on the canvas in areas. Looking for peoples comments on how to remove and clean as tag on the canvas states not to use any harsh chemicals.
    Any ideas....?
    Thanks in advanced.

    Vinegar is one option that most people seem to use and oil of cloves is another that has success ,here is a link to how to remove it . https://oilofcloves.com.au/blogs/mou...ould-on-canvas
    I used 30 sec mood remover 5 years ago on a windup camper I had and it was ok short term but it came back with a vengeance so I treated it with oil of cloves and had no problem again .Matt

    Vinegar or chlorine based chemicals (eg. 30 sec mould remover) only cleans the surface, Oil of Cloves kills the actual spores but you do need to get to it before the spores end up so deep into the material that it won't be as effective, mind you if your my age the smell will remind you of the dentist as that is what they used as an early anaesthetic. Once in the sun for a while the smell will go.

    Its a bit pricey though $14 for a tiny bottle but you don't need much oil of cloves only about 10mil to a litre.
