Bird Poo on Sunbrella

Got some pretty stubborn poo stains on the sail cover. Soaked in water over night then tumble wash with Woolite, no luck. Now soaking in Oxy Clean overnight.
Sunbrella site says you can use chlorine bleach for a deep clean but I am a little reluctant.
This stuff got baked on
Whadyause?

Sunbrella is pretty tough stuff you can use bleach or acetone but only for certain stains . Bird dropping try 2 oz dishwashing detergent 1 gallon water. That should do it. After everything is clean try 303 to re waterproff and help to repel new droppings.

Great product is PoopOff, available in pet shops. It is used to clean bird cages. Works beautifully and doesn't seem to cause any damage to the material. I've used it for years. Don't know why marine stores don't carry it. Good luck
