Cleaning the Canvas?

A few weeks ago when Don (parman) and I was touring the Great Lakes, we had to close our campers up in less than desirable conditions.......

 

A couple of times while closing, I wasn't thinking and didn't zip the door closed so a lot of wet dirt and stuff got inside.  My main concern is the ceiling has dirt on it.  Whats the best or recommended way to clean this?

 

I was thinking 409 or scrubbing bubbles with a soft rag, but thats just a guess on my part.

When we (Nancy and I) were cleaning the inside of our new to us camper we used a diluted mixture of pine-sol and warm water. It worked well, left a fresh smell and did not appear to do any damage to the canvas.

MY mother was a huge Pine-sol user........  Now I hate the smell of it......  But since Becca likes it and has plenty on hand, I'll give that a try!  A nice pine smell inside the camper might not be a bad thing.  THanks!

Woolite is a very gentle cleaner, if the stains are not ral bad it might take them out with a minmal chance of messing up the canvas.

 

Then again with the canvas being designed for outdoor use it should take a pretty good beating without showing any signs of distress. On a Pop up camper we had I used Oxy-Clean and little chlorine bleach where there was a little mildew, it did not hurt that canvas.

I got some scrubbing bubbles with bleach and did a couple small spots and it seems to be doing a pretty good job. 

 

Also got some Pine Sol to do a quick wipe down of everything else.  Should be like sleeping amongst the pines when Im done.....

My brother owns a tent rental business and they clean the tents with diluted Simple Green.  He said to be sure to rinse the tents well.
