Some canvas will lose stiffness and structure when laundered. To prevent changes in the material or construction, we recommend spot treating.
To spot treat, wet the Wash & Stain Bar and gently work into the stained area(s).
Remove soap and dirt with a wet Lint-Free Cleaning Cloth—be sure to remove all soap. Dampen the cloth as needed, and repeat the process until satisfied.
Skip to the Dry & Finish step, and continue by steaming.
Stain Solution is ideal for protein and tannin stains, such as wine, coffee, ink, grass, urine, blood, and old, set-in stains.
The Wash & Stain Bar works the material to remove dirt, grease, oil, and makeup.
To remove odor, presoak the item for 30 minutes in hot water mixed with ¼ cup of Scented Vinegar.
Dry & Finish
Cotton and linen can withstand tumble drying with high heat; however, canvas items (such as tote bags and sneakers) are best line-dried to preserve shape.
To remove wrinkles, iron on the highest temperature setting, or steam.
To freshen between uses, spritz with Fabric Fresh Classic. It’s a safe, nontoxic, allergen-free fabric spray that adds scent while removing odor!
Always store items clean.
