Our covers are made from Sur Last™ a 100% solution-dyed polyester (USA Made!) fiber with a urethane coating, which provides excellent water repellency, and mildew resistant. This construction allows Sur Last™ to be easily maintained. If you follow a few simple care and cleaning steps, the fabric will look good and maintain its fine qualities for many years.
|Always use a natural soap (Woolite or Deft). Never detergent.|
|Water should be cold to lukewarm. Never more than 100 degrees.|
|Air dry only. Never apply heat to Sur Last™ fabrics or put them in the dryer. If you are cleaning Sur Last™ while still on a frame or on a boat, follow these simple steps:|
1. Brush off loose dirt and hose it down.
2. Prepare a cleaning mixture of water and mild, natural soap (Woolite or Deft) (no detergents).
3. Use a soft bristle brush to clean.
4. Allow soap to soak in.
5. Rinse thoroughly and air dry.
6. Retreat with 303 .
If stubborn stains persist, you can use a diluted chlorine bleach/soap mixture for spot cleaning of mildew, roof run-off and other similar stains. Please keep in mind that chlorine bleach will not change the color of your Sur Last fabric but chlorine bleach eventually breaks down the fiber of any fabric and this method should be used little as possible. Do not leave on fabric over two minutes.
Prepare a special cleaning mixture:
2 ounces (1/4 cup) of natural soap to one gallon of water.
Clean with soft bristle brush and allow mixture to soak for up to 20 minutes.
may also use 4 oz (half cup) of chlorine bleach per gallon of water. Do not let
a bleach mixture on the cover over 2 minutes.
Rinse thoroughly and Air dry.
Repeat if necessary.
If top or boat cover is suitable in size for a washing
machine, these steps should be followed:
Use only natural soaps. No detergent.
Wash and rinse in cold water. Retreat with 303 High Tech Fabric Guard™.
Air dry. Never put Sur Last™ fabrics in your dryer
Applying 303 High Tech Fabric Guard™
303 should be applied to Sur Last™ fabrics after each thorough cleaning, which typically removes the original fluorocarbon finish and reduces the fabric's water resistance. After cleaning the fabric, allow it to air dry completely and then apply 303 in a thin, even coat. After allowing the first coat of 303 to air dry, apply a second thin, even coating of 303. Two light coatings are more effective in restoring fabric water resistance than a single heavy coating. The 15-ounce bottle provides coverage of up to 50 square feet of lightweight fabric. Please keep in mind that 303 will only work as well as you apply it. This means that your fabric must be free of dirt and detergents or it will wash away with the dirt particles.
With proper care and cleaning, you can expect excellent service and long life from Sur Last™ fabric!
