• Caring For Outdoor Fabrics

    General Guidelines for Outdoor Fabric Care

    • Do not dry clean.
    • Do not tumble dry; outdoor fabrics dry quickly.
    • Fabric is water-resistant, not waterproof.
    • Brush off loose dirt and wipe up spills as they occur.
    • Fabrics do not promote mildew growth, but mildew can grow on soils or spills if not promptly removed.
    • UV ratings are given in terms of hours of protected sun exposure. Most printed/ woven polyester and printed acrylic fabrics are rated for 500 – 750 light hours. Woven acrylics are rate for 1,500+ light hours.
