Sunbrella upholstery fabrics are high-performance fabrics that are unique among upholstery performance fabrics in that they are
made from 100% solution-dyed acrylic that is then spun into yarn, which means the color
is not a coating. It goes all the way through the fabric. Sunbrella fabrics are UV resistant, fade resistant, water repellant, and remarkably easy to clean.
To clean Sunbrella upholstery fabrics, reference Sunbrella's Stain Chart PDF and follow the steps below:
For spot cleaning, mix a mild soap with some water and apply it to the spot with a spray bottle. Dab or scrub the sprayed area lightly with a clean, soft sponge or cloth. Rinse with clean water to remove soap
residue and allow to air dry. Repeat until the spill or mess has been removed.
For stubborn spots or stains, add some household bleach to the spot cleaning solution of water and mild soap. Apply a light mist of the soap and bleach solution to the stain and scrub the area with a clean sponge
or cloth. Use cold water to rinse thoroughly so that all of the bleach and soap cleaning solution is off the fabric. Repeat until the stain is gone. Once the stain is gone, let the fabric air dry.
A few important notes: While Sunbrella offers some of the best protection against stains among commercial upholstery fabrics, complete removal of stains and spills isn't guaranteed if spills and other messes are
allowed to build up and are therefore not addressed immediately. Also, it's important to avoid scrubbing too hard at stains or spills on Sunbrella fabrics. Never use hard bristle brushes or other abrasive cleaning tools against the
fabric. Be cautious when using the bleach and soap solution, as it can have negative effects on the environment and can also discolor fabrics and surfaces around the Sunbrella fabric.
