Awning Cleaning

Hi, looking for some smarts here!
Yes I can clean the upper side of the awnings and even the underside of the shade awning. BUT how do you clean the underside of those slideout awnings? Without any suggestions it looks like a contortionists job.
Help!

No suggestions, never worried or thought about it. Scrubbing off a ladder with a long handed brush or power washer would likely cause more damage than the effort is worth. One option, black toppers don’t show the dirt like white.

So use awning cleaner but same system applies, mix it up put it on the top of the awning good and heavy then roll it up and wait 30 minutes, roll it back out and rinse. Works !
