Caring for your Sunbrella® Outdoor Fabric

CLICK TO SHOP FOR OUTDOOR FURNITURE

One of the best ways to keep Sunbrella® fabrics looking good and to delay deep or vigorous cleaning is to properly maintain the fabrics. This can be accomplished by simply brushing off dirt before it becomes embedded in the fabrics, wiping up spills as soon as they occur or spot cleaning soon after stains occur.

GENERAL OR LIGHT CLEANING

  • Brush off any loose dirt.
  • Prepare a cleaning solution of 2 ounces (1/4 cup) mild detergent, such as Woolite or Dawn dishwashing liquid, per gallon of lukewarm water.
  • Use a sponge or a soft bristle brush to clean.
  • Allow cleaning solution to soak into fabric.
  • Rinse thoroughly to remove all detergent residue.
  • Allow fabric to air dry.

SPOT CLEANING

  • Apply a light mist of mild detergent and water using a spray bottle.
  • Work the solution into the stain by lightly scrubbing the area with a sponge or very soft bristle brush.
  • Rinse thoroughly to remove all detergent residue.
  • Blot excess moisture with a clean, soft towel or sponge.
  • Wet-vacuum or blot excess water.
  • Air dry, Repeat steps 3 and 4 until all detergent residue is removed.
