I hang it on a clothes line and use simple green and a brush.

Check Sunbrealla's website. They say don't wash it in a machine....

Zyzzx is the first offramp south of Baker on the I-15. Used to be a movie star resort...

If you have Sunbrella material, I wouldn't wash it in a machine. I just washed mine this spring -- in cold, on gentle, tumble dry no heat and the thing still shrunk about 3 inches! I'm pretty screwed now.

I lay down a large plastic sheet(painters plastic or a a big tarp) and duct tape it to the driveway. On that I lay the Cover, and wash it with a hose and some simple green solution or some gentle boat wash. I use large bristle brush on a long handle to clean it thouroughly.

After it dries in the sun, I then coat it with some waterproofer using the same brush.

I think i will be washing it by hand in the driveway instead of the washing machine.

Tide UN-SCENTED laundry detergent. And as others said wash it right on the boat.
