W-S. Can be cleaned with light brushing and/or either water or solvent based products. Use a mild solvent, an upholstery shampoo, or the foam from a mild detergent.
The best time to deal with any spill is immediately. Because of GreenShield's water and oil repellant properties, most spills on a GreenShield® treated fabric will be sitting on top of the fabric. Immediate gentle blotting of a simple liquid spill such as coffee or wine with a clean, absorbent cloth or paper towel will often completely remove the spill. If there are solids in the spill (mustard, tomato sauce, etc.), it is best to remove the solids with something like a spoon before blotting the spill. Do not rub at the spill since that may push it into the fabric or make it bigger. If the spill is large, remember to blot toward the center so that you do not spread it. If the spill is not completely removed by blotting, the application of a fluid may be necessary. Before selecting a cleaning system, be sure to check the manufacturer's instructions for the fabric and do not use cleaning materials which may damage the fabric itself.
It is impossible to evaluate all available cleaners but a number have been tested for both spot removal and their impact on the GreenShield treatment. Water-based spot cleaners that have been found to be compatible with fabrics using GreenShield fabric finish include: •Woolite® uphoslstry cleaner •Woolite® Oxy Deep® •Resolve® Multi-Fabric •Shout® Advanced •Folex® •Once'n Done® Few solvent based spot cleaners have been evaluated with GreenShield. Solvent cleaners based on hydrotreated aliphatic hydrocarbons (such as Solv-a-clene™ and Goo Gone®) were compatible with GreenShield as was isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol).
