Clean Sunbrella® Sheer

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

Spot Cleaning

  • Apply a light mist of mild soap and water using a spray bottle.
  • Work the solution into the stain by lightly scrubbing the area with a sponge or soft cloth.
  • Rinse thoroughly to remove all soap residue.
  • Air dry.
  • Repeat these steps until stain is removed.

Machine Washing

  • Pre-treat any heavily stained areas with an appropriate stain remover (see Stain Chart).
  • Depending on wash load size, use normal amounts of mild laundry soap.
  • Machine wash in cold water for best results.
  • Air dry.

Heavy Cleaning For Stubborn Stains And Mildew

Sunbrella fabrics do not promote mildew growth, however, mildew may grow on dirt and other foreign substances that are not removed from the fabric. To clean stubborn stains:

  • Add 1 cup of bleach to the cleaning solution.
  • Soak fabric for 10 – 15 minutes in the diluted cleaning solution (stop machine prior to agitation).
  • Machine wash in cold water for best results.
  • Air dry.

If stain and/or mildew are severe, bleach quantities may be increased.
