Vinyl

A nonporous plastic that is tough, flexible, shiny, and can be transparent. Used as fabric coating and to produce leather-like products. Flame-resistant and resilient to insects and microorganisms.

CMSPage_Vinyl_Spot Treat

Spot Treat

Note: Oddly, vinyl cannot be dry cleaned. The material shrinks in perchlorethylene (the most common solvent used in dry cleaning). Clean according to the instructions below.

Most vinyl items, such as patent shoes, vinyl coats, and furniture coverings, can be spot treated, or wiped clean using Surface Cleaner.

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.

CMSPage_Vinyl_Pretreat

Pretreat

When washing, always pretreat stains with Stain Solution or the Wash & Stain Bar. Focus on susceptible areas such as underarms, necklines, and cuffs.

Stain Solution is ideal for protein and tannin stains, such as wine, coffee, ink, grass, urine, blood, and old, set-in stains such as pit 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 cool water mixed with ¼ cup of Scented Vinegar.

CMSPage_Vinyl_Handwash

Handwash

Handwashing is always the best and safest method for washing vinyl.

Add 2 capfuls or a squirt of Signature Detergent to a washbasin or sink filled with cool water.

Submerge the item and gently agitate the water with your hands to evenly distribute soap. Soak for up to 30 minutes. Rinse well by running cool water through the item until the water is no longer soapy. Do not wring.

CMSPage_Vinyl_Machine Wash

Machine Wash

Turn the item inside out, and place it in a Mesh Washing Bag. Select the delicate cycle on the washing machine, and make sure the water temperature is cold and the spin is on low.

Add the appropriate amount of Signature Detergent according to the machine and load size.

If your vinyl has mold or mildew, add a capful of All-Purpose Bleach Alternative to the wash cycle.

CMSPage_Vinyl_Dry & Finish

Dry & Finish

Lay the item flat in its natural shape on a drying rack or hang to dry.

Do not put it in the dryer, and do not iron or steam.

CMSPage_Vinyl_Store

Store

Always store items clean and dry to prevent mold and mildew.
