    Best way to clean a tarp?

    I've been hanging in the back yard a good bit and wind up with bird poop and such on my tarp. Going to take a bucket with water and mild soap, scrub with a nylon brush and rinse. Is there a better way to do it?
    Everyone ought to believe in something....I believe I'll go set up the hammock!

    Me personally just use the garden hose and a soft piece of cloth to rub off the poop. Always worked for me.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    There isn't much that sticks to silnylon and pretty much everything falls right off with a little bit of water and scrubbing.

    I hose down after every trip, if there's any stubborn dirt or bird poo, I use a wet cloth and rub gently.
