Cleaning and storing your tent



The simplest way to clean a tent, whatever the model, is to brush it, using a sponge and soapy water, while it is still up. You then need to rinse it thoroughly to make sure there is no soap residue. The most practical method is to use a hose.

If you have pine resin stains on the fly-sheet, you must first wait for the resin to dry. Next, place an ice cube on the inner surface of the canvas, just under the resin stain. The resin then becomes brittle and comes off easily when you scratch at it gently.

Cleaning the canvas with pine resin detergent can also give good results.

NB: the use of solvents can greatly reduce the tent's waterproof properties. Do not use them to clean your tent.

Once the tent is properly dry, you can stow it away in its bag. We strongly advise against storing your tent in its bag when still damp. This can cause mould and unpleasant smells.

It is also preferable to store your tent in a dry place.
