1. SUNBRELLA ® fabric should
be cleaned regularly before substances such as dirt, roof particles, etc.,
are allowed to accumulate on and become embedded in the fabric. The fabric
can be cleaned without being removed from the frame. Simply brush off
any loose dirt, roof particles, etc.; hose down and clean with mild natural
soap in lukewarm water (no more than 100° F.). Rinse thoroughly to remove
soap. DO NOT USE DETERGENTS!
2. For stubborn stains soak the fabric for approximately twenty minutes
in a solution of no more than 1/2 cup (4oz.) of bleach and 1/4 cup (2
oz.) natural soap per gallon of water at approximately 100° F. A non-chlorine
bleach is recommended for SUNBRELLA ® "Plus" because
of the urethane coating. Rinse thoroughly in cold water to remove all
of the soap. Note: Excessive soaking in bleach can deteriorate sewing
threads. This method of cleaning may remove part of the water repellency
and the fabric should receive an application of an air-curing water repellent
treatment, such as APCO, UNISEAL, SUNSEAL or similar products, if water
repellency is a factor.
3. SUNBRELLA® may be dry cleaned but a water repellent
treatment must be applied to the fabric after dry cleaning to reestablish
water repellency. SUNBRELLA® is made from 100% acrylic
fiber and is thermoplastic or heat sensitive. When washing or cleaning,
DO NOT SUBJECT TO EXCESSIVE HEAT as the fabric will shrink. DO NOT STEAM
PRESS OR DRY IN ELECTRIC OR GAS DRYERS, but allow to air dry.
