Sunbrella Care and Cleaning Overview
It is important to care that your sunbrella fabrics maintain their original appearance. Avoiding a deep cleansing is as easy as removing it before entering the fabrics, clearing the spills as soon as possible and removing stains as quickly as possible. As a result, Sunbrella fabrics have a special surface that increases the water repellency and is designed for years of use.
It is recommended that light or natural soaps be used for general, light, spot and heavy cleaning. With "spot and natural soap" we mean Ivory Snow, Dreft or Woolite. These gentle soaps are easy to stop and do not reduce the water repellent "finish" applied to the fabric. Just use cold water, just clean the stain and let the sand dry in the air. Do not put a shell or cushion in the washing machine.
Soak the fabric in ¼ cup of mild soap with warm water per gallon.
Use a sponge or a soft bristle brush if necessary.
Make sure you keep your pen to keep the rest of the remains.
Leave your product to air dry.
Although Sunbrella fabric does not support the growth of mold, it can be dirt and mold on other materials if it can not be removed from the sand.
Mix 1 cup of bleach, 1/4 cup of mild soap and 1 gallon of water.
Place the stained area for 15 minutes in the mix.
With a sponge, clean the towel or gently rub the area with a very soft brush.
Rinse thoroughly to remove residue.
Allow your fabric to dry.
* If the stain and / or mildew are severe, the amount of bleach can be increased. See Sunbrella Stain table to remove specific stains.
When using a bleach mixture around the sunbrella fabric, be careful to protect the area. It can dye bleach, non-Sunbrella fabrics. Also, thoroughly wash your Sunbrella fabrics to get rid of all the bleach and soap residues. In addition, Sunbrella fabrics do not need to dry quickly due to their drying. If you have wrinkles, use an iron with a "synthetic fabric" heat setting. Otherwise, it is recommended that you do not use a steaming steam iron or iron in your awnings.
