Remove the umbrella fabric from the frame and lay it out on a tarp. Sweep the umbrella to remove any loose dirt. Mix together warm water, white vinegar and dish soap in a bucket then rinse the fabric with a hose. Make sure the umbrella fabric is completely wet, then use a scrub brush to scrub the mixture all over the fabric removing stains and dirt. Let it sit for 10 minutes, then rinse the umbrella fabric with a hose to remove the soapy mixture and let the fabric fully dry. While the umbrella is drying, take a cloth and use the same soapy mixture to wipe down the umbrella stand to remove any build up of dirt and bring it back to life. Once the stand is clean and the fabric is fully dry, reattach the fabric and enjoy a clean and shady summer!
