Easy Does It.
While Crypton fabric is the easiest in the world to clean, it’s not self-cleaning. In reality, most new stains come off with a damp cloth and water. There is one suggested cleaning method that is universally and easily available – the use of enzyme detergent (listed below).
• Mix 2 cups of warm water with 1 teaspoon of enzyme laundry detergent (e.g., Tide® or Cheer®) to form a mixture that works well on most stains. Then follow these simple steps:
• Remove excess soil and apply the soap mixture to the stained area
• Agitate stain with a soft brush
• Allow solution to remain on stain for one minute
• Blot up the stain with a dry, white towel, rinse any remaining soap and blot the area again
• Repeat if necessary
If Extraction is Required:
• Before wet-cleaning, vacuum the upholstery
• Apply cleaning solution to specific spots and lightly brush
• Follow directions on filling extraction machine with proper solution, wet the area with pre-spray and vacuum up the solution
• Be sure to extract the entire surface of the upholstered furniture to achieve uniform cleanliness
If Bleach-Cleaning is Required:
• Using bleach on Crypton (as any other textile) is dependent on the fiber content. We recommend cleaning with a 10% bleach/water mixture only on solution-dyed polyester, acrylic or 100% polyester
• Spray the 10% bleach/water mixture on the fabric and allow to linger for the time specified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Make certain to thoroughly rinse after bleach-cleaning
