is a specially formulated coating produced in the Netherlands that increases resistance to staining. Stains that would otherwise prove indelible can in most cases be entirely eradicated. Everyday stains should be wiped clean with a damp cloth, while tougher stains should be dabbed with rubbing alcohol (isopropanol). All stains should be cleaned immediately, and rinsed with clean water. Please note that ONLY Colour Heaven is treated with Stainerase. When cleaning all other fabrics in this range DO NOT APPLY any solvents, and follow the General Cleaning instructions.
Expression fabrics are easy to clean and have been developed to retain their attractive appearance. Normal soiling can generally be removed with a damp cloth. More obstinate stains should be washed with warm soapy water and gently rubbed with a soft brush, before rinsing with clean, cold water, and drying with a cloth. DO NOT USE detergents, chemical cleaners, solvents, bleaches, abrasives, wax polishes and aerosol sprays etc., as these may damage the surface of the material.
NHS cleaning solutions such as Chlor-Clean and Haz-Tabs can be applied at the recommended strength, and should be rinsed with clear water, though excessive use of the solutions should be avoided. Do not use general detergents, chemical cleaners, or solvents.
Although Expression Fabrics are resistant to many mild acids, alkalis, drinks, and common household fluids, any spillages should be wiped off as soon as possible. The longer a spillage is left in contact with the fabric, the greater the likelihood of permanent staining.
