Flip, rotate and fluff removable cushions regularly to ensure even wear and increase longevity.
Covering outdoor upholstered furniture when not in use will reduce the need for cleaning.
During the off season, cover your outdoor upholstery and, if possible, store it in an enclosed, dry area. This will extend the life of your furniture. Clean before covering and storing.
Sunbrella® Outdoor Fabric Cleaning
For light overall cleaning, brush off loose dirt and rinse with water.
For spot cleaning, use a sponge or soft bristle brush with a solution of 1/4 cup mild soap per gallon of water. Rinse thoroughly, air dry. We also recommend Folex® water-based stain remover for spot cleaning. Follow label directions for best results.
Sunbrella fabrics do not promote mold or mildew growth; however, it may grow on dirt and other foreign substances if not removed from the fabric. To remove mold or mildew:
Prepare a solution of 1 cup of bleach and 1/4 cup mild soap per gallon of water.
Spray on entire area and allow to soak into the fabric for 15 minutes.
Clean entire surface area with a sponge, clean towel or very soft bristle brush. (It's best to clean the entire surface area of the fabric to avoid water rings.)
Rinse thoroughly to remove all soap residue.
You may also machine wash or hand wash any removable fabric casings. To wash, first close all zippers. Machine wash in cold water on the delicate cycle with normal amounts of mild laundry detergent. For severe mold or mildew, add 1 cup of bleach. Allow fabric to air dry. Do not tumble dry.
Do not dry clean fabrics. If ironing is necessary, use the synthetic setting with no steam and test a small, inconspicuous area first.
