Cleaning Sunbrella Fabrics

For everyday cleaning, Sunbrella Shade and Upholstery fabrics are easy to clean. Simply spray with a mild cleaning solution of soap and water, clean lightly with a soft brush or cloth, and rinse well. We also recommend 303® Multi-Surface Cleaner, an all-in-one cleaning agent that works on all water-safe materials, including Sunbrella fabrics.

Mold and Mildew

Sunbrella fabrics do not promote mildew growth, however, mildew may grow on dirt and other foreign substances if not removed from the fabric. To remove mold or mildew:
  • Prepare a solution of 1 cup of bleach and 1/4 cup mild soap per gallon of water.
  • Spray on entire area and allow to soak into the fabric for 15 minutes.
  • Clean entire surface area with a sponge, clean towel or very soft bristle brush.
  • Rinse thoroughly to remove all soap residue.
  • Air dry.
