Hi I bought an ironwood 885 last year with a traeger cover. Can anyone tell me the best way to clean this as it has got a light coating of mildew on the top of the canvas cove


Thanks Mark

How do I clean a moldy grill cover?​

You should not use harsh chemicals on your cover. White vinegar will help to get rid of mold and mildew. Below you will find steps on how to clean mold off the grill cover.

Steps​

  1. Pour the undiluted vinegar onto a spray bottle and spray it directly onto the sections of the cover that are affected by mildew.
  2. Allow the vinegar to settle into the material for about an hour.
  3. After that, clean the cover using soapy water and a soft brush if you want to get rid of other residues that may be on the cover.
  4. If there is still some mold left on the grill cover, you can again spray them with the white vinegar.
  5. You may notice some black or greenish stains on the cover after getting rid of molds. Wash them with soapy water.
  6. Finally, get some running water and use it to rinse the grill cover. Hang the cover in the sun and let it completely dry before using it.
