CARE & MAINTENANCE
Regular maintenance – Vacuum fabric regularly to remove crumbs, dust and dirt to avoid build up.
Spills – Soak up spills as quickly as possible using dry absorbent cloth.
Stains – Most stains can be cleaned using a damp cloth. For persistent stains use a warm soapy
water solution. Moderate scrubbing with a soft bristle brush and soapy solution will help loosen
soiling from the fabric surface. It is very important to remove all soap residue with clean water.
Fusion can also be cleaned with a bleach solution (1 part bleach 10 parts water) rinse all residue.
Do not use solvent based cleaners. Failure to follow cleaning instructions may permanently stain
and reduce the life of the fabric.
