Sunbrella is also easy to care for.  Most spills and stains can be cleaned up by spaying on a mild cleaning solution of soap (such as Dawn) and water.  Then simply sprayed off with water and let air dry.

Sunbrella fabrics do not promote mildew growth, however, mildew may grow on dirt and other foreign substances if not removed from the fabric.  To remove mold or mildew, prepare a solution of 1 cup of bleach and ¼ cup mild soap per gallon of water.  Spray on entire area and allow to soak into the fabric for 15 minutes.  Clean entire surface area with a sponge, clean towel or very soft bristle brush.  Rinse thoroughly to remove all soap residue and let air dry.

Neutral DeckAnd did you know you can recycle your Sunbrella fabric?  It’s true.  For over 25 years, Sunbrella acrylic manufacturing waste has been delivered to recycling partners who convert the materials into industrial products such as felt, automotive insulation, and filtration.  You can contact Sunbrella and learn more on how to recycle your pre- or post-consumer fabric waste, including used awning covers, boat covers and upholstery fabric.
