    Use & Storage

    • Make sure your tent is completely dry before storing it. Moisture, mold, and mildew can damage your tent.
    • Remove all the tent poles, including reinforcement bars (present in large tents for more than four people).
    • Close or zip the front door of your tent securely when you store it.
    • Avoid wearing shoes inside your tent to reduce wear and tear.
    • Use a footprint, tarp or large cloth under your tent while camping to protect the bottom.


    • Gather equipment/supplies: You’ll need water, soap, tent/gear cleaner, a cloth/sponge and a tub.
    • Brush it off and shake it out: Get rid of sand or dried-on dirt; you can also carefully sweep or vacuum inside while it’s set up.
    • Spot clean first, then immerse: First you’ll spot clean dirty areas, then soak the tent in sudsy water.
    • Rinse and dry: Be sure to rinse your tent thoroughly and dry it completely before storing it.
