How to Choose the Right 'Cleanable' Upholstery Fabric
What is the difference between Cleaning and Disinfecting?
Cleaning helps remove soils and stains from the surface of a fabric, requiring soap/detergent and water. Disinfecting kills any germs on the surface. It is important to clean a surface before disinfecting, as germs and other viruses can hide under other soils.
Is there a difference between Wipeable vs Cleanable?
A ‘wipeable’ fabric has an impermeable top layer that prevents liquids from getting through, all of our coated fabrics are considered wipeable.
A ‘cleanable’ fabric is one that can be cleaned with a recommended cleaning agent to help remove any stains from the fabric, but are not impermeable.
What is a 5:1 or 10:1 bleach solution?
Disinfectants, cleaners and/or bleach should always be used in the proper concentration as recommended.
We recommend a 10:1 water/bleach solution for our bleach-cleanable wovens, also known as a ‘10% dilution’. For our coated products, we recommend a 5:1 solution, known as a ‘20% dilution’.
