How do I Wash a Tent?

Answer

You can wash a tent, but be very cautious of how you go about the task. Check with the tent manufacturing instructions first as they may have special instructions. Erect the tent in a shady area out of the sun. Do not use a detergent, clean water only and either a cloth or soft brush. Rinse well and then check all seams for leaks. After thoroughly dry, apply the water repellent.
