Cleaning Prevail™ Fabrics

The fibers used in this fabric are naturally stain and fade resistant.  Aggressive cleaners can be used on it, but there are important things to keep in mind.

  • Wash by hand.  A washing machine may break down any backing attached to the fabric.  
  • Start with a milder cleaner. Soap and water should be your first choice for cleaning, If it is a tougher stain a cleaner made specifically for upholstery will take out nearly any stain.
  • If you are faced with a very difficult stain, and the stain is on fabric that can be removed from the furniture, as with a cushion, and there is no backing that can’t be removed. a bleach solution may be used.  It is very important to rinse all the bleach out, with a stream of water.  If there is bleach left in the fabric it can ruin clothing, irritate skin, or degrade padding or wood it comes in contact with. 
  • Allow fabric to air dry.  Do not use a dryer.  It also may break down any backing.
