Cleaning Naugahyde®

Advanced BeautyGard™ Protective Finish

Naugahyde with Advanced BeautyGard provides outstanding protection in difficult medical and health care environments. Contains agents effective against bacterial and fungal microorganisms.

Cleaning is a breeze with Naugahyde® brand fabric and its Advanced BeautyGard protective finish. While staining and soiling exposures are common to upholstery fabrics, most stain and soiling may be removed by using the simple cleaning methods that follow:

For Light Soiling

1. A solution of 10% household liquid dish soap with warm water applied with a soft damp cloth will remove most soiling.

2. If necessary, a solution of liquid cleanser and water applied with a soft bristle brush. Wipe away the residue with a water-dampened cloth.

For Heavier Soiling Not Solved by Above Method:

1. Dampen a soft white cloth with lighter fluid (naphtha) and rub gently. Rinse with a water-dampened cloth.

NOTE: Use extreme caution with this method. Complete only in a well-ventilated area and away from any open flame.

NOTE: You should try this method on an inconspicuous spot before using it on the original stain/soiling.

For the Most Difficult Stains Not Removed by the Above Methods:

1. Dampen a soft white cloth with a solution of household bleach (sodium hypochlorite); 10% bleach, 90% water.

2. Rub gently.

3. Rinse with a water-dampened cloth to remove bleach concentration.

4. If necessary, allow a 1:10 diluted bleach solution to puddle on the affected area or apply with a soaked cloth for approximately 30 minutes. Rinse with a water-dampened cloth to remove any remaining bleach concentration.

NOTE: You should try this method on an inconspicuous spot before using it on the original stain/soiling.

Please Review Carefully

CAUTION: Should you desire to use other cleaning methods, carefully try them in an inconspicuous area to determine potential damage to the material. Never use harsh solvents or cleaners which are intended for industrial applications. To clean stained or soiled areas, a soft white cloth is recommended. Avoid use of paper towels.

CAUTION: Cleaning products may be harmful/irritating to your skin, eyes, etc. Use protective gloves and eye protection. Do not inhale or swallow any cleaning product. Protect surrounding area/clothing from exposure. Use in a well ventilated area. Follow all product manufacturer’s warnings. Naugahyde cannot be held responsible for damage or injuries resulting from the use or misuse of cleaning products.

Cleaning Crypton

There is nothing unusual about the normal care of Crypton®. Like any beautiful textile Crypton® must be cleaned on a regular basis. Since dirt and dust build up on a fabric, vacuuming regularly is advised. To prolong the life of your furniture, cushions should be rotated on a frequent basis. The everlasting beauty of the Crypton® can be found in its ability to resist stains.

Cleaning Liquids

Most spills can be easily cleaned with cotton. Just wipe up the spill with a clean cotton towel. Please follow directions for solid or dry stains(below) if a residue remains after wiping.

Solid or Dry Spills

Remove as much of the dried stain as possible with a dull flat knife. By removing the majority of the stain, there is less of a chance the staining agent will be rubbed into the fabric as it is cleaned. In many cases this process will remove the stain. However if the stain is still present, procede with wet cleaning treatment described below.

Wet Cleaning Treatment

For most stains, simply make a paste using equal amounts of an enzyme powder detergent, such as Tide® or Cheer®, and water. Apply the solution to the stain. Allow the solution to remain for at least one minute (max five minutes) to allow the detergent to begin removing the stain. Then, scrub the area with a nylon brush. After scrubbing, the area needs to be rinsed thoroughly using a sponge and clean water. Water will not affect Crypton®, so please use it liberally. Remember to rinse the soap completely because the fabric will look and perform its best when all soap is removed. Then, dry with a clean cloth. Any remaining moisture will evaporate in a short time. Please remember, with Crypton's® water barrier, the foam will not become wet in the rinsing process. For some oil based stains and ink you should pretreat the area with rubbing alcohol.

Steam Cleaning

Steam cleaning is an ideal method of thoroughly cleaning Crypton®. Spots can be removed by pre-treating them with either the soap solution mentioned above or a pre-treatment solution from the steam cleaning company. Most solutions provided by these companies are acceptable to Crypton® fabrics.

Cleaning Sunbrella®

One of the best ways to keep Sunbrella® fabrics looking good and to delay deep or vigorous cleaning is to properly maintain the fabrics. This can be accomplished by simply brushing off dirt before it becomes embedded in the fabrics, wiping up spills as soon as they occur or spot cleaning soon after stains occur.

General or Light Cleaning

Brush off any loose dirt.

Prepare a cleaning solution of 2 ounces (1/4 cup) mild soap per gallon of lukewarm water.

Use a sponge or a soft bristle brush to clean.

Allow cleaning solution to soak into fabric.

Rinse thoroughly to remove all soap residue.

Allow fabric to air dry.

Spot Cleaning

Apply a light mist of mild soap and water using a spray bottle.

Work the solution into the stain by lightly scrubbing the area with a sponge or very soft bristle brush.

Rinse thoroughly to remove all soap residue.

Blot excess moisture with a clean, soft towel or sponge.

Wet-vacuum or blot excess water.

Air-dry. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until all soap is removed.

Heavy Cleaning for Stubborn Stains and Mildew

Sunbrella® fabric does not promote mildew growth, however, mildew may grow on dirt and other foreign substances that are not removed from the fabric. To clean mildew, or other stubborn stains:

Prepare a solution of 8 ounces (1 cup) of bleach and 2 ounces (1/4 cup) of mild soap per gallon of clean water.

Spray on entire area and allow to soak into the fabric for 15 minutes.

Remove stain with a sponge, clean towel or very soft bristle brush.

Rinse thoroughly to remove all soap residue.

Allow fabric to air dry.

Professional Cleaners

In evaluating the services of a professional firm, you should inquire about the firm's experience in working with Sunbrella® fabrics and knowledge of cleaning and re-treatment requirements. DO NOT dry clean Sunbrella® fabrics.

Sta-Kleen® Care and Cleaning Guide

Sta-Kleen® Performance Fabric is the first erasable urethane fabric that enhances fashion for designers and brings the convenience of easy cleaning to the end user. Moreover, its looks and feels so much like real leather, you'll hardly believe it’s faux.

Sta-Kleen is the best choice for high-traffic areas where sacrificing beauty for performance simply isn’t an option. Whether you’re choosing fabrics for a living room or a lobby, a restaurant or a casino, a waiting room or a dining room, Sta-Kleen succeeds where style and elegance are as important as withstanding stains and wear.

Cleaning tough stains is a breeze, and Sta-Kleen has staying power – for the life of your furniture. Sta-Kleen is not a topical treatment. It is a permanent application chemically bonded during the manufacturing process.

Ballpoint pen can be dry erased.  Oil-based stains like butter, salad dressing, sauces, and cosmetics can be easily removed. Topical antiseptics, lotions and creams that would stain conventional urethane upholstery forever are wiped away. Regular cleanings and the removal of difficult stains will not damage nor diminish Sta-Kleen's finish, performance or high-style appeal.

Day-to-Day Cleaning

Remove ordinary dirt and smudges with mild soap and water. Dry with a soft, lint-free cloth or towel. The use of conditioners or protectants is not required nor recommended for use on Sta-Kleen upholstery – its cleanability is permanent, and won’t wear out.


A 5:1 ratio of water to bleach solution may be used as a disinfectant. Rinse the surface with clean water after disinfecting. Dry with a soft, lint-free cloth or towel.

Stain Removal

Upholstery protected with Sta-Kleen is resistant to most common stains. To keep your furniture looking new, stains such as ballpoint pen can be dry-erased with a clean, lint-free cloth. Gently rub the area until the stain has been removed. Wet or gooey stains such as food stains (e.g., ketchup) or topical stains (e.g., antiseptics, lotions and creams) should first be wiped off with a clean cloth or sponge, then follow the instructions above.

Stubborn Stains

If a ghost stain remains, apply a small amount of household rubbing alcohol (91% isopropyl alcohol) to a clean, lint-free cloth and rub the stain until it has been removed. Rinse with a clean, damp cloth and go!

Chemical Cleaners

Sta-Kleen products are used in many commercial applications. The housekeeping crews often use strong chemicals for cleaning and disinfecting surfaces.  It is imperative that when these chemical cleaners are used that they are rinsed off with a wet sponge or damp cloth.

Blue Jean Dye Resistance

Sta-Kleen creates an invisible barrier to keep the indigo dye from transferring to the upholstery. However, as there are many types of both natural and synthetic dyes used in coloring clothing, we cannot guarantee there will never be any dye transfer. In the unlikely event that any blue jean dye transfer occurs, follow the Stubborn Stains cleaning instructions above.


This guide addresses the care and cleaning of Sta-Kleen Performance Fabric. The care and cleaning methods covered in the guide will provide the best protection for these products. However, not all stains can be removed, especially if the stains are not addressed immediately. This information does not relieve the user from the responsibility for the correct and safe use of the product and cleaning methods. The Mitchell Group is not responsible for any defect caused by the use of cleaning solutions not included in this guide. In addition, the product warranty will be voided if any other cleaning methods are used on this product.

What are "Nano" coatings?

Mosehart-Schleeter Pattern 3336

Nano technology employs the use of molecular particles that are measured in billionths of a meter or 1,000 times smaller than a grain of sand. When these small particle sizes are used in textile coatings they provide several advantages over traditional coatings:

1. The small particles coat the fibers more completely and evenly providing better protection.

2. They provide more surface area to protect the fiber from stains.

3. Being so microscopic they do not affect the “hand” of the fabric.

4. They adhere better to the fibers providing a more permanent protection.

In addition to extraordinary durability the Nano coating provides remarkable stain release characteristics. While professional upholstery cleaning is the recommended method for cleaning fabrics with Nano finishes most stains, including red wine, coffee, oil, mustard, ketchup, soy sauce, suntan lotion and even ink from a ballpoint pen, can be cleaned by using a clean cloth dampened with only water. More stubborn stains can be cleaned with a little mild soap and water followed with another clean cloth dampened with water to remove any residue.

Stains that prove more difficult to remove are usually easily cleaned with an upholstery cleaning product found at most grocery, home improvement and drug stores. ALWAYS FOLLOW PRODUCT USAGE DIRECTIONS TO TEST FABRIC COLORFASTNESS AND FOR ANY OTHER PRECAUTIONS.
