Dodger Maintenance

What do you used to clean your dodger Canvas?
Does it ever need re-waterproof after cleaning?
I have a white dodger.

Re: Dodger Maintenance

So do we. Go to the Sunbrella website, they have care & maintenance instructions. Woolite and a little bleach, wet it thoroughly, clean, wet down, let dry, re-waterproof.

Re: Dodger Maintenance

303 is terrific stuff, though not cheap. The same company also makes a canvas cleaning product to use before applying the waterproofing 303 product. Another advantage of applying 303 every year is that the dirt doesn't have much of a chance of sticking to (or permeating) the canvas. I can imgine that white canvas must be tough to keep clean ...
