CARE AND CLEANING
To extend the life of your fabrics, we recommend cleaning them regularly so dirt and food particles don’t build up and embed in the fibers. Routine cleaning also reduces the bacteria that causes mildew.
Your cushions are not impervious to extreme weather so consider taking a proactive approach to care. If inclement weather is approaching, we recommend you bring them indoors. Should the cushions become saturated, squeeze excess water out of them, then set them on their side to air dry.
For general cleaning, vacuum the fabric, then mix a gentle cleaning solution of dishwashing
liquid and lukewarm water. We suggest 2 ounces (59ml) of solution per gallon of water. use a sponge to blot, but do not scrub. Follow with a thorough rinsing and air dry your fabric. Mildew and stubborn stains require heavier cleaning. To your general cleaning solution, add
8 ounces (237ml) of bleach, then spray on the entire fabric area. allow the solution to soak in, then scrub vigorously with a soft bristle brush or sponge and rinse thoroughly. In some cases, long-standing stains may not be completely removable.
