Care & Cleaning Sunbrella Fabric
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
by simply brushing off any loose dirt, hose down and clean with
a mild solution of natural soap in lukewarm water (no more than
100 ¡ F). Rinse thoroughly to remove soap. DO NOT USE DETERGENTS.
Allow to air dry and store in your Tubelite Cover. For more stubborn
cases: Soak the fabric for approximately twenty minutes in a solution
of no more than 1/2 cup( 4 oz.) of non-chlorine bleach and 1/4
cup (2 oz.) natural soap per gallon of water at approximately
100 ¡ F. Rinse thoroughly in cold water to remove all of the soap.
Note: Excessive soaking in non-chlorine 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 fluorocarbon water repellent treatment, such
as 303 Hi Tech Fabric Guard, if water repellency is a factor.
Sunbrella is made from 100% solution dyed acrylic fiber which
is thermoplastic. DO NOT SUBJECT TO EXCESSIVE HEAT. When Sunbrella
fabric is stored, it should be cleaned, allowed to air dry and
stored in a dry, well ventilated area.
