Aluminum Frame Care
Use caution when opening boxes and removing bubble wrap. (Note: This type of damage is not covered by Limited Warranty.) Regular washing with nonabrasive, mild soap & water will remove dirt, body oils, chemicals and other substances. Rinse thoroughly; do not pressure wash, and allow to air dry.
The sling is made of 100% Phifer mesh, an extremely durable, fade resistant, and easy to care for fabric. Regular maintenance will help extend the life of the fabric. We recommend cleaning the fabric twice yearly for moderate use, or more often for heavy-use applications. To clean fabric slings, prepare a solution using 1 tbsp. liquid dish detergent and 2 tbsp. bleach mixed in 1 gallon of fresh warm water. Clean the fabric using a sponge or soft cloth dipped in the solution. Be careful to avoid getting this solution on the teak or stainless steel furniture frame. After cleaning, rinse the fabric thoroughly with fresh water and allow it to air dry.
For more stubborn stains, use the following treatments:
- Suntan lotion, oils, or grease: Rubbing alcohol
- Mildew: Use strong liquid detergent with warm water and chlorine bleach.
- Beer and coffee: Use strong liquid detergent with warm water and white vinegar.
- Berry juices, wine, or blood: Use strong liquid detergent, warm water and ammonia.
You should avoid putting your sling fabric in direct contact with oil-based products such as suntan lotion, which may cause the fabric to discolor or age more rapidly. If direct contact occurs, clean the fabric promptly to remove any lotion or oil residue.
