FABRIC CARE

It is important to look after the fabric to help maintain its appearance and condition.

Most stains can be removed using the wipe clean method.

NB.: Do not leave cushions outside in all weathers as water will ingress through stitching and zips

General care: Regular vacuuming and wiping with a damp cloth to remove dust particles

Spillages: remove quickly with an absorbent dry cloth

Minor soiling: wipe with a clean damp microfibre cloth

Water based stains: mild liquid detergent with warm water, rinse thoroughly followed by drying with an absorbent microfibre cloth. Use cold water for stains produced by bodily fluids.

Other stains: use proprietary products, following the instructions on the container carefully

Hypochlorite or Alcohol based solutions: can be used in extreme circumstances (Half a cup of household bleach with 5 litres of water-10,000ppm) but not as part of a regular cleaning regime

Cleaning Agents: Do not use optical brightening agents, products that contain peroxide or other chemicals that may cause fading. Do not use cleaning agents incorporating bleach as part of a regular maintenance programme

Steam cleaning: can be completed in situ

Machine Wash: With care at 40°C. Covers must NOT be turned inside out and the zips MUST be closed. Remove from machine as soon as washing cycle is complete.

Line Dry

Iron: If necessary on the face side of the fabric only at low temperature

DO NOT DRY CLEAN

Always pre-test cleaners on a hidden piece of fabric to evaluate the colourfastness and texture of the fabric before proceeding with cleaning

All soap residue must be rinsed out of the fabric as it will attract further stains.

Please note that stains caused by bodily fluids should be removed immediately.

As with all fabrics, stains that have been left in situ for over 24 hours will have set and will become increasingly difficult to remove. 

 

Please note that all fabric offered is subject to minor tolerance in respect of shade and other slight variations.

If you wish to use your own material to fit your own colour scheme, please contact us as not all materials will be suitable, and we will be able to advise on this.
