Outdura® Fabric Care and Cleaning
Outdura® fabric should be cleaned regularly to prevent excessive dirt from accumulating. Simply brush off any loose dirt and rinse with lukewarm water. To clean, use a solution of lukewarm water (not exceeding 100° F) and a mild natural soap such as Lux™ or Ivory™. Rinse thoroughly to remove excess soap. For light cleaning, avoid the use of detergents.

Indoor Furniture
To maintain, brush regularly, wipe spills as they occur and spot-clean stains. Hand-wash removable covers by soaking in gallon of lukewarm water to which a quarter-cup of mild soap has been added. Sponge or brush as necessary. Rinse thoroughly in clean water. Air dry. Machine-wash removable covers in cold water and mild soap. Air dry. To spot-clean upholstered pieces, spray with a mist of water and mild soap, then sponge or brush lightly. Rinse thoroughly in clean water, then air dry, blot or use a wet-vacuum. Repeat final steps until all soap residue is gone. To clean stubborn stains and/or mildew, use 1 cup bleach and 1/4 cup of mild soap per gallon of clean water (increase for severe stains). Soak affected area for 20 minutes before using sponge or clean towel to remove stain. Rinse well and air dry. NEVER DRY CLEAN OUTDURA. IF NECESSARY, CAREFULLY IRON ON SYNTHETIC SETTING; DO NOT USE STEAM.

Maintaining Water Repellency
Normal wear, usage and cleaning will reduce the effectiveness of Outdura's water-repellent finish. If water repellency is important, a water-repellency treatment (available at marine and awning stores) should be used if the fabric has been cleaned or if the fabric is constantly exposed to the elements.
