PVC (Polyester Vinyl Coated) and Specialty Weave PVC Fabrics

The life of your outdooor fabric depends on how it is cared for and maintained. The use of certain sun blocks and suntan lotions, which can contain harsh chemicals, may permanently discolor or damage a fabric. To help keep your furniture from unnecessary wear store your cushions when not in use or to cover them with a breathable furniture cover. It is important to clean your products regularly and as promptly as possible after being exposed to outdoor lotions, debris and sprays.

Tip: Placing a cushion on its side will allow the water to drain faster and the cushion to dry faster. Never use a commercial washer or dryer to clean cushions or slings.

PVC or Polyester Vinyl Coated and Acrylic or Olefin Blended Fabrics

If the area remains slightly stained, add 1 cup of chorine bleach to the cleaning solution and repeat the process, using a soft brush if necessary.
