|Clearing and care guide

Vacuuming is best for fabrics and a slight damp cloth is best for upholstery. Anytime dust settles into the fabric a spill or stain will always be more noticeable and even more difficult to clean.

Pen, pencil or grease marks sometimes can be gently removed with a white rubber based eraser. A stain that has time to settle in should be cleaned with a solvent based cleaner. Care should be taken when using these type cleaners, manufacturers instructions should be followed. These cleaners, made by Guardsman or Sprayway can be purchased online or some retailers. Only small areas can be spot cleaned, and heavy soaking or numerous cleaning in one area can result in a visible ring around the stain. A professional should be used for overall cleaning or any hard to clean stains.
