    They had black marks from rain . Soaked Ubik - then stiff bristle brush - then hot TAP water in backpack with WFP
    These have wind sensor too but no problem
    Because they withdraw the canopies - it may be just the part that is constantly exposed to weather which needs scrubbing ( the bottom or front of canopy)
    I found on a different shop that all the work was at the bottom - which is good cos you can step ladder and hand scrub - I'm doing them every 3 months now to keep in top
