Since then I use the mild soap, soak, brush, roll up, let rolled up for about half an hour, unroll, rinse, and let dry method to keep it clean.
I guess it also depends on the age and strength of the fabric. You might want to start with the gentle nozle if your pressure washer has different settings or nozles.
