AUTION: Other cleaning methods are used at the facility’s own risk.
For cleaning, a soft white cloth is recommended: avoid use of paper towels.
General Cleaning: General Cleaning: Your Champion chairs are constructed of vinyl with protective finish, MORGUARD™. This finish resists staining materials. Staining materials can penetrate over time, so it is important to remove the spill as soon as possible after it occurs. Not only is the clean up easier, the possibility that the spill will penetrate the protective finish and become permanently set in the fabric is reduced. So for the best results, give spills immediate attention.
CAUTION: Some fabric dyes have the ability to create a permanent stain. To reduce the likelihood of a problem from this or any stain, clean as soon as noticed.
VINYL MANUFACTURER’S CLEANING RECOMMENDATIONS:
Follow these steps in order. If the stain is removed; stop the cleaning process at that point, after rinsing with clean water and drying the fabric.
- Remove excess spill with a damp cloth. Clean with a mild soap solution. Always rinse with clear water and dry with a clean cloth. Soap solution may be applied with a cloth or a soft bristle brush.
- For more stubborn stains, use a mild detergent such as Fantastik®, Formula 409®, or Mr. Clean® according to the manufacturer’s directions. Use a soft cloth or a soft bristle brush to apply the detergent, always rinse with clear water and dry with a clean cloth.WARNING: When solvent type cleaners are being used, care should be exercised. KEEP AWAY from fire or flame and use in a well ventilated area.
- If the stain persists, use full strength rubbing alcohol or mineral spirits cautiously. (This means trying the cleaner in a hidden area first). Work in a small area; apply the cleaner in a circular motion a few times, rinse with clear water and dry with a clean cloth. Examine the fabric for damage before using on the stain.Caution: Indiscriminate use of strong solvents can damage or discolor vinyl.
- Use a full strength application of lighter fluid (naphtha). Use a soft cotton cloth saturated with cleaning material. Rub the stain in circles 10 times, pat dry with a soft cloth and check results. Rinse thoroughly with clean water and pat the surface dry with a clean cloth.
- Use 1:1 mix of isopropyl alcohol and water. If stain persists, use straight alcohol. Rinse with clean water and pat surface dry with a clean cloth. If stains remain, use a 1:1 mix of acetone (nail polish remover) and water. Rinse clean and pat the surface dry with a clean cloth.
To disinfect a solution of up to 10% bleach and water solutions may be used. Information from the fabric manufacturer is meant to establish an upper limit beyond which damage might occur.
