Hello,
Done it by hanging the boat upside down (garage roof) and used Washing up liquid, followed by plenty of clean water !!.
Make very sure the boat is properly hung!!!.

Proper sail maintenance is easy and takes little time, but it can make a big difference in the life and performance of your sails. The best way to maintain the strength and shape of your sails is to minimize the amount of time they are flapping in the breeze. One of the quickest ways to destroy a sail is to use it in more wind than it was built for.
