During storage of our pop up camper, we forgot to remove the curtains which are a red wine color. The roof developed a leak and the dye from the curtains transferred onto the light grey canvas. I purchased a canvas cleaner, however it failed to remove the stains. Short of replacing the entire canvas, does anyone have any suggestions for any products that would remove the red dye without damaging the canvas material? I have also thought of using fabric paint to try and get as close a match as possible, but this is a last resort.

You could try using dye remover. It has to be dissolved in hot water first, but then could be sponged on. The canvas would have to be sponged with clean water to rinse it. The dye remover is sold wherever fabric dye is sold.

How do you get the red stain, from the curtains, off of the canvas in a pop up? What cleaning product will work?

This is a really strange thing to try, but what about wetting the canvas and holding one of those dye catching cloths to it to see if that would work. The cloths work amazingly well in the washer so if your back is against the wall it might be worth a try.
