Vinyl Fabric Cleaning Guidelines
A soft cloth or sponge with soapy water will get the job done in most cases. Vinyl is impervious to water.
Should you wish to use bleach or any cleaning agent other than mild soap, you may want to test the cleaning agent on a scrap or in a inconspicuous area of the item to be cleaned. Cleaning agents may contain unknown solvents and are subject to formula changes by the product manufacturer without notice. The good news is that most household spray cleaners may be used with vinyl.
Never use harsh solvents or cleaners which are intended for industrial application. Avoid use of paper towels as they are many times made from recycled materials and contain particles such as ink. This would contaminate the cleaning process.
Clean with warm water and liquid dish soap on a sponge or soft cloth.
Clean with a soft, white cloth using a solution of household bleach (sodium hypochlorite); 10% bleach, and 90% water. Rub gently, then rinse with a water dampened cloth to remove the bleach concentration.
To restore luster, a light coat of spray furniture wax can be used. Apply for 30 seconds and follow with a light buffing using a clean white cloth.
Cleaning products maybe harmful or irritating to your skin, eyes, etc. Use protective gloves and eye protection. Do not inhale or swallow any cleaning product. Protect surrounding area and clothing from exposure. Use in a well ventilated area. Follow all product manufacturer's warnings.
