Fabrics

To maintain your cushions we suggest that you do not leave cushions in standing water and do not put your cushions in the washer or dryer.  Suntan oils, lotions, sweat, dirt, etc all accumulate on fabric over time, even if the buildup cannot be seen by the naked eye.  Regular cleaning of your furniture frames and fabrics is important to maintaining the integrity of your furniture.  Read below for specific instructions on how to care for different types of fabric.
