Use and Care: Remove dust with a soft cloth; carpet beaters and vacuum cleaners could damage the padding and the upholstery. Stains must be dealt with as quickly as possible, using a clean white cloth moistened with lukewarm water and, if needed, a purpose-specific detergent. Never apply the detergent directly to the fabric. It is crucial to manually work from the edges of the stain toward the centre. Allow to dry in the open air; do not iron or steam. To avoid damage to the slipcover, place protective tape over the Velcro strip on each slipcover every time the item is dry cleaned or hand laundered. Follow the care instructions indicated on the fabric label. • Gentle dry cleaning: take your item to a specialized dry cleaner. If there are stains, tell the dry cleaner the source of the stain. After cleaning, the slipcovers should not be stored in hermetically sealed containers. • Water washing: hand wash (do not machine wash) at temperatures no higher than 30°C (86°F). For best results, turn sofa covers inside out before laundering. Use mild soap only, free of optical whiteners, because many commonly-available detergents contain bleaching agents that can alter colours. Hang the laundered covers to drip dry.
