Care & Maintenance

Baserails:
• For regular cleaning, remove dirt and smudges with a mild soap and warm water solution. Dry with a soft, lint free cloth.
• Use a stronger detergent for more difficult stains and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
• Special cleaning problems (use in the following order):

Step 1: Non-abrasive household cleaners used with water and a soft cloth.
Fantastik® or Formula 409®

Step 2: Solvent type cleaner liberally applied with a soft cloth. Dry area with a different cloth, rinse with clean water and let dry.
Rubbing (isopropyl) alcohol

Step 3: Strong, active solvent cleaners applied with a soft cloth. Stain should be removed with less than 6 rubs; if stain persists after 6 rubs, stain has set and probably cannot be removed. Dry area with a different cloth, rinse with clean water and dry.

CLEANING

Cleaning Fabric- Spot Cleaning:

For regular cleaning:

• Lightly brush or vacuum both vertical and horizontal surfaces to prevent dust and soil build-up.
For spills, stains, or heavy soil build-ups:
• Clean immediately. Remove as much of the stain or staining agent from surface. Vacuum the surface, gently brush or scrape off the material, and/or soak up any excess liquid from a spill. Do not dry completely as this will cause the stain to set, making clean up more difficult.
Water-based Cleaning Agents (Colorfastness code W or W-S only)
• If your fabric cleaning code is W or W-S (see table above). Works best on water-based stains (coffee, soft drinks, juice):

-Use only water-based cleaning agents or foam.
-Mix 2 tablespoons ammonia or detergent to a quart of water.
-Wipe the stain gently with a cloth dampened with this solution.
-Continue turning the cloth so you are always using a clean portion to remove the stain.
-Work from the outside of the stain toward the center using quick, light strokes. Do not over-saturate the fabric.
-If you use a water-based cleaning solution such as Woolite® always follow the directions on the package.
-Allow the area to dry thoroughly and vacuum.

Pure Water-Free Solvents (Colorfastness code S or W-S only)

• If your fabric cleaning code is S or W-S (see table above). Works best on oil-based stains or spills (lipstick, oil, ink):

-Use a dry-cleaning solution or spot remover. Some cleaning products may cause discoloration and should be tested in an inconspicuous location prior to use.
-Apply the solution to the soiled area using a damp cloth or soft bristle brush.
-Work from the outside of the stain toward the center using quick, light strokes. Do not over-saturate the fabric.
-Blot the area with a cloth to absorb the cleaning solution and soil.
-Clean the area with clean water and damp cloth or sponge.
-Allow the area to dry thoroughly and vacuum.
-If the stain persists, repeat the above process. It is better to use several light applications than one heavy one.
