What is the best way to clean my SunnyTent?

If the SunnyTent remains outside over a long period of time (for example, from early spring to late autumn, or even in the winter), it will of course get dirty. Green deposits, dust and other airborne debris may stick to the outside of the tent. And of course you want to use your SunnyTent as transparent and clean as possible.

What to use

You can clean the outside of the tent with a sponge or soft brush and lukewarm (approx. 37 degrees Celsius) water. Do not use a hard brush, strong jet, scouring pads or other aids, as this may damage your tent foil. Also, do not use chemical cleaners, as these can damage the seams and stitching. With a very dirty tent you can add a little bit of natural soap to the water.

Method

First: only clean the outside of your tent foil. Do not clean the inside, as it does not get really dirty and you may end up removing the anti-condensation layer on the foil.
Cleaning the exterior is best as follows:

SunnyTent round:

– Make sure that the tent is fully closed and secured with the twist pegs in the ground.
– First clean the tent panels that you can easily access. In general, these are two tent panels at the front of the tent and two at the rear. We will call these layers 1, 2, 5 and 6.
– Then only the two tent layers remain on top of the tent, which you cannot reach – numbers 3 and 4.
– Loosen the tent on one side (by turning the twist pegs counterclockwise to release the tent poles). One person holds this open side in the middle, while the second person pulls down the tent on the other side, so that layer 3 comes within reach and can be cleaned. Two people are required to do this sucessfully; one on each side of the tent.
You can then clean layer 4 by doing the same on the other side of the tent.

Oval SunnyTent:

– Make sure that the tent is fully closed and secured with the twist pegs in the ground.
– First clean the round tent layers (ends) that you can easily reach. Also clean the middle section, as far as you can reach.
– If you also want to clean the higher parts of the
