Preserve the appearance

Regular gentle vacuum cleaning helps to preserve the fabric's attractive colour and appearance.

Wool – natural dirt repellent

Wool is naturally resistant to dirt and fire. It is antistatic and attracts dirt to a lesser degree than other fabrics do.

Dry wet spots with a piece of white kitchen roll. Scrape up dry, attached spots with a spoon. Most spots can be removed with lukewarm water possibly added a neutral detergent.

It is a good idea to do a test where it will not show before applying a cleaning agent. Use only small quantities of cleaning agent at a time and dry up with absorbent paper as you work.

If the spot does not disappear using water and a neutral detergent, follow the instructions in our guide to spots. 

Disinfection of polyester fabrics

Should the need for disinfection arise, this can be done by washing at minimum 74˚C or by wiping with ethanol.

NOTE: This applies to Comfort+, Obika Leather+ and polyester and Trevira CS textiles only.

The following is a quote from the report by the Danish SSI, Statens Serum Institut, “Advice and guidelines on disinfection in the health sector":

“In Denmark, ethanol at a concentration of between 70% and 85% (by volume) is recommended because it ignites more easily at higher concentrations.

Ethanol vapours are less irritating to the eyes and mucous membranes and are not absorbed through the skin.

Ethanol kills bacteria (e.g. tubercle bacilli), fungi and viruses (e.g. HIV, hepatitis B and C), but it has no effect on spores.

Ethanol is easily inactivated by organic matter. Surfaces must therefore be cleaned prior to disinfection with ethanol.”

For safety reasons we recommend that instructions for use are made for the specific area of use.
