Fabric Care and Cleaning

Our Premium Outdoor Fabrics are Easy to Clean


QUALITY

We only use outdoor fabrics that are specially formulated for sustained outdoor use, resisting water, fading and fraying. These vibrant fabric colors stand up to harsh chemicals like bleach, our recommended cleaner.


PROCESS

Our outdoor fabrics are 100% solution-dyed acrylic, meaning that the acrylic is dyed in a liquid state, extracted into yarn, spun into thread and woven into fabrics. Adding the dye in the liquid state allows the color to permeate the fabric and prevent it from fading, washing or wearing off.


CARE

While our outdoor fabrics are resistant to stains and damage from mildew or chlorine, we know that over time cleaning may be necessary. Our cushions, pillows and umbrella canopy fabrics are easy to clean, only requiring simple household cleaners.

Instructions for Care

SPOT CLEAN

We recommend regularly spot cleaning any lighter stains from liquids, food or dirt. Good for cushions, canopies or fabrics that were last cleaned less than a year ago.

  • 1. Brush off any loose particles and rinse fabric completely with clean water.
  • 2. Mix a solution of 1 TBSP liquid dish soap in 1 GAL lukewarm water (no more than 100˚F.)
  • 3. Gently scrub fabric with a soft nylon brush or sponge.
  • 4. Rinse fabric thoroughly in cold water to remove cleaner.
  • 5. Allow to air dry. Unzip cushions and stand on end to speed dry time.

DEEP CLEAN

A more intensive cleaning method. Good for cushions, canopies or fabrics that have not been washed or cleaned in more than a year or after intensive use.

  • 1. Brush off any loose particles and rinse fabric completely with clean water.
  • 2. Mix a solution of 1 TBSP liquid dish soap and 1 CUP household bleach in 1 GAL lukewarm water (no more than 100˚F.)
  • 3. Gently scrub fabric with a soft nylon brush or sponge.
  • 4. Rinse fabric thoroughly in cold water to remove cleaner.
  • 5. Allow to air dry. Unzip cushions and stand on end to speed dry time.

IMPORTANT:

DON’T remove the foam from inside the cushion while cleaning – cushions can easily be cleaned with the foam in place. Zippers can be opened for faster drainage and drying if needed.

Country Casual Teak does NOT recommend washing cushion covers or pillows in a washing machine or dry cleaning them. The agitation and spinning will fray the seam allowance on the inside to weaken or rip seams. Country Casual Teak is not responsible for damage resulting from machine washing, and machine washing negates any warranty on fabric, canopies, pillows or cushions.
