Should I purchase an extra pole for my Otentik sunshade?

The standard setup of two poles is sufficient for most cases. In areas where there’s little or no wind, a third pole may be beneficial. In most cases, though, you won’t need it!

How should I take care of my sunshade?

As for washing, we would normally only recommend washing the sunshade once a year or if it gets something on it. Usually a quick rinse with fresh water and air dry will suffice. When you wash the whole shade, detach the ropes and put them in a garment bag.  It is important to wash the sunshade without any soaps or detergents. Using these sorts of products will affect the durability and quality of the sunshade fabric. After use, the easiest and best practice for keeping the sunshade clean is to hand wash the sunshade in cool water and then let the fabric air dry.

How do I know which sunshade size is right for me?

We think that the small sunshade is great for 1-2 people (or dogs)! With the 4.5 ft poles, you get great shade coverage. The medium sunshade suits well for 2-4 people, depending on how much space you want and how large your beach chairs are. The large is great for groups of 4-8 people, and the 6.5 ft poles provide ample standing room.
