A tent needs maintenance too
Whether an awning, tent, folding tent, teepee tent, scouting tent, safari tent or lightweight tent, each tent needs maintenance. Otherwise the tent can not be used with pleasure. Although there are clear differences between the various types of cloth and brands, they have one thing in common. They are very susceptible to fungus and the familiar green deposit. On the inside of the tent you often find the well-known black stains / mold stains. The exterior gets dirty after some time by algae contaminated water (rain stripes), resin stains, etc.

We often hear that people clean their tent with green soap or a standard cleaner. Green soap is soft indeed, but it will give problems. Even after rinsing for a long time with clean water, it leaves a greasy residue. (You can feel it on your hands). That fatty layer is the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew. It will also ensure that impregnating the tent cloth is much more difficult. So use a special tent cleaner.
