One of the best ways to keep Sunbrella® Indoor Outdoor Throws looking good is to brush off dirt before it becomes embedded in the fabric and clean spills soon after they occur. The quicker you clean spills, the easier they can be to remove.


Try this first... With a new spill on your Sunbrella Throw.

  • Blot (don't rub) liquid spills with a clean, dry cloth.
  • For oil based spills, apply an absorbent, such as cornstarch, directly on the spill. Let sit for 10 minutes and remove the excess using a straight edge
  • Spray on a mild cleaning solution of soap and water or use our Sunbrella Clean™ Multi-Purpose Fabric Cleaner.
  • Rinse the fabric thoroughly to remove all soap residue. 
  • Air dry. 

Try this next... If your first try doesn’t get the spill completely out.

Machine Wash
Machine wash your throw on gentle cycle with bleach if needed. Tumble dry low. Do not dry clean.

Add Bleach

For more stubborn stains, we would recommend adding a 1:5 ratio of bleach to the soap and water solution mentioned above.

Oil-Based Spills

If a stubborn oil based stain persists after cleaning, use Sunbrella Extract™ Oil Based Stain Remover or treat with a strong degreaser and rinse thoroughly.

Steam to Remove Wrinkles

Use a steamer or steam iron set to the synthetic setting to remove wrinkles and creases from your throw. As iron temperatures may vary, first test a small inconspicuous area before ironing the entire piece.



Helpful Hints 

While Sunbrella fabric offers excellent protection against stains, full removal is not always guaranteed if spills are not addressed promptly.

Avoid scrubbing, hard bristle brushes or any other abrasive cleaning method.

Protect the other materials and area around your Sunbrella fabric when using bleach or other chemical solvents that
may discolor other components (grommets, corner weights, etc.). Always rinse Sunbrella thoroughly

Bleach can have harmful effects on the natural environment around you. Please follow all safety and environmental precautions according to the bleach label.

Professional Cleaners

Should you want to enlist the help of a professional cleaner, we recommend inquiring about a firm’s experience working with Sunbrella fabrics and knowledge of cleaning and re-treatment requirements.

Seam-to-Seam Cleaning

When cleaning, clean the entire
surface area of the throw, from
seam to seam, instead of rubbing the fabric in a circular motion on the spill only. This method may be required in order to avoid water rings and residue
