How to take care of our fabrics?

PRETTY AND HEAVY-DUTY THINGS WILL SERVE YOU EVEN LONGER, IF YOU TAKE CARE OF THEM PROPERLY.

Here are the instructions on how to properly take care of Toccare fabrics. Observing a few simple rules will allow to emphasize all the advantages of Toccare fabrics and give more satisfaction from using tchem.

USING FABRIC ON A DAILY BASIS

UAVOID DUST – remove dust, stains and dirt immediately.

CLEAN ON A REGULAR BASIS – minimum ones a week clean a fabric – using a soft brush or a vacuum cleaner with a tool for furniture.

KEEP AWAY FROM SUN RAYS – avoid exposing to sun rays.

KEEP AWAY FROM HEAT SOURCES – avoid exposing to heat sources such as for instance a radiator or a stove. Keep the minimum distance of 30 cm. from heat sources.

DO NOT DRY FABRIC WITH A HAIRDRYER – fabrics cannot be dried by means of heat sources such as a heater, a hairdryer or an iron, etc.

CLEAN ANY DIRT IMMEDIATELY – in case of any dirt on fabric clean it immediately with eraser or wipe it with a moist cloth, depending on the type of the fabric.

AVOID GETTING WET – do not expose fabrics to excessive or longterm moistness or wet.

KEEP AWAY FROM ANIMALS – keep away from pets which might damage the structure of a fabric.

DO NOT COVER FABRIC – to avoid the pilling effect do not cover a fabric with pile bedspreads and blankets. The pilling effect comes into being when fibers of bedspread join with fibers of an upholstery fabric.

BE CAREFUL WITH CLEANING AGENTS – using cleaning agents other than green soap might cause discoloration of fabric. Using a small amount of green soap is allowable. Contact with cream, deodorant, solvents and ammonia as well as alcohol and kerosene-based chemical agents causes discoloration of fabric and synthetic leather.

WASHING, DRYING, IRONIN

Due to used technologies Toccare fabrics cannot be washed, dried mechanically, ironed or chlorinated. All these activities might damage the waterproof layer of fabric and easy clean systems. Technologies applied in Toccare fabrics reduce  the possibility of dirt arising and make removing it easy eliminating the need of additional fabric cleaning.

WHILE CLEANING FABRICS DO NOT USE:

  • rough and hard sponges, cloth or brushes
  • cleaning agents other than green soap
  • stain removers, bleaching substances, washing agents (powders, liquids, gels), petroleum-derived agents, chemical agents with alcohol, solvents, ammonia, nail polish removers and disinfectants
  • waxing agents, moisturizing creams

The above mentioned substances might permanently damage fabric or synthetic leather structure. They might cause discoloration, scratches, cracks and even entire damage (burn off) of a fabric. The use of other cleaning agents might reduce or entirely eliminate effectiveness of technology and systems which help keeping fabric clean on a daily basis.

FABRIC MAINTENANCE

During a normal exploitation of fabric, waterproof and easy/H2O clean layer undergoes a natural process of getting worn causing the reduction of their properties. This is a normal process and it is not covered by the warranty. In order to maintain all features of waterproof and easy/H2O clean layer for the whole period of exploitation we recommend to use EASY CLEAN & WATERPROOF InSpray or H2O CLEAN & WATERPROOF InSpray agent once a year – depending on the type of fabric your furniture wears. Only regular – once a year – fabric maintenance with a dedicated agent guarantees the waterproofness and easy-careness of fabric.

REMEMBER!

ONLY REGULAR – ONCE A YEAR – MAINTAINING FABRIC WITH A DEDICATED AGENT GUARANTEES FABRIC WATERPROOFNESS AND EASY CLEANING.

WARTO WIEDZIEĆ

Technologia Waterproof zabezpiecza tkaninę przed wnikaniem w jej głąb większości płynów, takich jak sok, woda, wino czy napoje gazowane. Cechą naturalną jest mniejsza skuteczność technologii w przypadku płynów ciepłych (np. herbata, kawa), które mogą wnikać w tkaninę, co nie podlega gwarancji.

REMOVING STAINS AND DIRT

Fabric cleaning has never been so easy before! Toccare fabrics have been manufactured using advanced technologies, which will make cleaning any dirt easier in a maximum extent. The method of dirt cleaning depends on the fabric type your furniture “wears”. The name of the fabric can be found on the other side of this page, on the Authenticity Card as well as on the list of applied technologies on our website. In case your fabric lacks systems which make removing dirt easy, use moistened soft cloth and green soap. Remember that you can any time impregnate fabric and make it waterproof applying one of Toccare InSpray sets dedicated to the type of your fabric.

REMEMBER!

IN CASE FABRIC GOT DIRTY CLEAN IT IMMEDIATELY NOT ALLOWING DIRT TO PENETRATE INTO FABRIC FIBERS.

 

EASY CLEAN SYSTEM

Rub the dirty part of the fabric with EASY CLEAN block making small, round moves – just as if you were erasing pencil remnants from the paper… Done! The fabric will be clean. Easy, right?

HINT:

to remove dirt use only soft rubber not to damage fabric structure. We recommend using rubber from Easy Clean & WATERPROOF InSpray set whose composition and softness have been matched in order to maximize the protection of fabric structure and ensure maximum efficiency in dirt cleaning.

Apply EASY CLEAN & WATERPROOF InSpray preparation on a cleaned fabric surface. It will again protect the fabric from dirt.

Directions of use EASY CLEAN & WATERPROOF InSpray: apply EASY CLEAN & WATERPROOF InSpray on fabric in such a way the fabric is well moistened and gently rub it in with a soft cloth. Leave it for 30-40 minutes. Wipe it dry with a paper towel or an absorptive cloth (DO NOT USE COTTON). Wait out 6-8 hours. During this time do not touch the fabric, so the fabric has no contact with another surface or leather.

 

H2O CLEAN SYSTEM

Wipe the dirty surface of fabric with a H2O CLEAN moistened cloth making firm, round moves. Turn the cloth the clean side out after each single wipe in order to avoid spreading the stain on the fabric. Leave it to dry.

HINT:

to remove dirt use only a very soft cloth. We recommend using the cloth from H2O CLEAN & WATERPROOF InSpray set which has been made from especially selected highly soft microfibers which guarantee efficient dirt removing and maximum protection of the fabric.

Apply H2O CLEAN & WATERPROOF InSpray preparation on a cleaned fabric surface. It will again protect the fabric from dirt.

Directions of use H2O CLEAN & WATERPROOF InSpray: apply H2O CLEAN & WATERPROOF InSpray on a fabric and leave it it to dry for 1 hour. Reapply and wait out for 6 to 12 hours. During this time do not touch the fabric, so the fabric has no contact with another surface or leather.

Remember! The longer you wait out after applying the second layer of H2O CLEAN & WATERPROOF InSpray preparation the longer-lasting and more friction resistant the membrane will become.
