The Best Way to Clean Solar Shades

Never submerge your solar shades in water, as it may damage internal mechanisms.

  1. Wipe your solar shades with a microfiber cloth and warm, soapy water for general cleaning. Leave the shade lowered to dry.
  2. If you have exterior shades that need deep cleaning, you can remove your solar shades and scrub with a soft brush and soapy water. Rinse them with a hose and keep the fabric flat to avoid crumpling.
  3. To remove dust from your solar shades, cover your vacuum hose with a brush attachment and swipe across the fabric. Support the fabric from the pack to prevent it from being pulled into the hose and crumpling.
