IIRC the manufacturer recommends 303 Fabric Guard (also a 3m product, if I'm not mistaken)

Washing sunbrella in strong detergent breaks it down so regular trips through the washing machine are not recommended unless you are using Woolite as opposed to a true detergent.

Water will eventually wick through if the detergent-washed fabric is not treated afterwards.
