Care and Cleaning

View the cleaning guide

Thanks to the inherent advantages of Sileather® fabrics, cleaning and maintenance is very easy*! There is no need for waxing or cleaning solutions, nor additional sun-blocking agents. For common stains in daily life, water or water with detergent is sufficient to remove it all. Like many fabrics, we recommend that all spills be cleaned up as soon as possible, Here we also recommend some helpful tips for typical stains:

Loose dirt, dust, and footprints

Clean with a soft sponge or cloth using water

Stubborn stains

Ketchup, Grape Juice, Orange Juice, Red Wine, Coffee, Mustard

  • Simply clean with a soft sponge or cloth using water

Sunscreen, Mascara, Soy Sauce, Ballpoint Pen Ink, Permanent Marker

  • Mix 30 g detergent with 1 kg water

  • Use a soft sponge or cloth using the mixture solution.

Lipstick, Iodine, Denim Dye

  • Clean with a soft sponge or cloth using 95% ethyl alcohol or 90% Isopropyl alcohol
