Fabric Inspiration & Fabric Care
As with all fine fabrics close attention to the fabric care instructions will result in long lasting colour vibrancy and fabric wear and tear.
For Upholstery fabrics rotate furniture seat cushions periodically for more even wear. This will also balance exposure to the sun. When spills occur using a gentle touch, carefully blot up any spills with a towel. Do not rub frantically. When washing becomes necessary machine wash in cold water on the gentle cycle. Use regular laundry detergent, special detergents and cleaners are not recommended. Line dry and use a warm iron as needed.
Do not dry clean.
Indoor-Outdoor Acrylic Printed Fabrics
Prints of 100% acrylic are naturally soil and stain resistant. To prolong the life of the fabric, remove outdoor cushions from direct sunlight and other elements when not in use. Turn cushions regularly for more even wear and exposure to the sun. Please note that outdoor fabrics are water repellent, not waterproof.
Normal Stains / Dirt
Remove loose dirt with a soft bristle brush or hose down with cold water. Clean with a mixture of water and mild soap. Rub in mixture with a soft brush and allow to thoroughly soak into fabric. Rinse thoroughly with cold water and air dry. Never use water over 100˚F. Do not machine-dry. DO NOT USE DETERGENT.
Do not use bleach on printed acrylic fabrics, as it will fade the printed pattern.
Stubborn Stains & Dirt
Remove as much surface dirt as possible. Soak fabric in cold water and mild soap for minimum 1 hour. Rub in mixture of mild soap and water with soft brush and rinse thoroughly with cold water. Air dry. Never use water over 100˚F. Do not machine-dry. DO NOT USE DETERGENT.
