The upholstery is crafted from Nautolex which has been designed to provide years of dependable service with normal use and care. Regular care will help keep Nautolex products looking their best. However, some stains can become permanent if not removed quickly. We recommend cleaning as soon as possible after a stain is discovered.
Each week, wipe surfaces with a soft, damp cloth and towel dry. In very rainy weather, cover or remove cushions since seams can trap and absorb moisture. Cushions should be stored in a dry, well-ventilated place.
Special Cleaning Problems
For dirt or stains that cannot be removed with a damp cloth (refer to cleaning chart below for examples) and to minimize any problems from these and other stains, it is recommended that as soon as they are noticed all stains should be cleaned, making sure the recommended cleaning steps are used in the following order:
Mild Soap and Water Solution: Use mild soap and water solution and if necessary, a soft-bristle brush. Rinse cleaned area with fresh water then dry with a clean, lint-free cloth.
DO NOT USE abrasive powders, steel wool, industrial strength or solvent cleaners, vinyl "conditioners" or "protectants." These products should be avoided on this Nautolex upholstered product. Undiluted bleach or lacquer solvents can dull or damage the upholstery. If in doubt about a detergent or cleaner, test a patch in an inconspicuous place before applying in a larger area.
CAUTION: Suntan lotion and insect repellants can cause rapid staining and deterioration of the surface of the product. Remove these products immediately after contact. Wash the area with a mild soap and water solutions, rinse with clean, warm water, then towel dry.
