Care and Cleaning
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
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
W/S - Spot clean with upholstery shampoo, foam from a mild detergent, or mild dry cleaning solvent.
Disinfecting and Chemical Resistance
Sileather® fabrics are inherently resistant to strong and even harsh chemicals including disinfectants that are used in high traffic areas or healthcare facilities.
