Acrylic Canvas is manufactured and designed to withstand the harshness of the Marine environment. There are, however, a few simple steps you can take to help the fabric last and prolong its appearance over the course of its life.
Hose down regularly with fresh water and, if needed, a gentle brush to help remove any surface dist or dirt. This prevents any dirt becoming ingrained in the weave of the fabric.
For more ingrained dirt or stains use warm water below 30 degrees and a soft soap solution, ensuring you rinse any soap from the fabric thoroughly after cleaning.
A WORD OF WARNING
Before placing your cover into storage it should be dried and cleaned to prevent mould and mildew. Please dont wash your cover using a jet or pressure washer as the pressure of the water can damage the yarns and strips the fabric of its strength and waterproofing.
Don’t use any Chlorine or Bleach based products as these may discolour or damage the yarns, and please do not tumble dry or iron the fabric, allow it to dry naturally. For best results we recommend you reproof the cover after washing. We stock products in our loft for this purpose.
Alternatively if you don’t want to wash your cover yourself let us do it for you, please see out Laundry page for details on the process.
