Care and cleaning

Comfortable, beautiful, and oh so liveable, Sunbrella fabric makes the dining or living room as worry-free as the outdoor room. It’s amazingly easy to

maintain, and most spills can be cleaned with mild soap and water. For tough stains, bleach can be used without fear of damaging the fabric or removing

the colour. With this kind of durability and a wide range of styles, what’s not to love?

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.

• Machine wash at 40°C or hand wash as follows:

• Prepare a cleaning solution of 60 ml mild soap for 4 l of lukewarm water (less than 40°C).

• Clean with a soft bristle brush and allow cleaning solution to soak into fabric.

• Rinse thoroughly and allow fabric to air dye.

• If necessary, use an iron set to “synthetic fabric” heat. DO NOT use a steamer or an iron with steam setting.

Heavy cleaning for stubborn stains and mildew

Sunbrella fabric does not promote mildew growth, however, mildew may grow on dirt and other foreign substances that are not removed from the fabric.

To clean mildew, or other stubborn stains:

• Prepare a solution of 240 ml of bleach and 60 ml of mild soap for 4l of clean water. Spray on entire area and allow to soak into the fabric.

• Scrub vigorously with a soft bristle brush, rinse thoroughly and allow fabric to air dry.

For removable Sunbrella fabric umbrella and cushion covers, machine wash in cold water (less than 40°C). Depending on wash load size, use normal

amounts of mild laundry soap and add 240 ml of bleach if needed. Allow fabric to air dry. If stain and/or mildew are severe, bleach quantities may be


Re-treating the fabric for ease of cleaning
