Use a feather duster to ensure all dust is removed from the fabric

If you have chosen classic vinyl solar shades your work will be easier. Just use a damp cloth or a sponge with a little lukewarm water and mild dish detergent. You need to wring out the cloth or sponge. Then, gently run over the canvas to dislodge the dirt. It's that simple!

If you are cleaning solar shades, the best way to clean them with a cloth or sponge is to start at the bottom and work your way up. It is better to make small section and rinse with a damp cloth without detergent. Continue until the fabric is completely cleaned.

After cleaning and rinsing, the blind should be dried to prevent dust from sticking to your window coverings. To do this, use a hair dryer set to the lowest heat. This will help you loosen the excess water trapped in the micro-covers of the fabric.

Steam Cleaning

Many people believe that if they steam wash their solar shades, they will damage them. For some fabrics, this is the best way to wash them. However, you need to keep a few factors in mind.

Different fabrics require different care. For sturdier fabrics, you can use water and detergent, but you can also use steam. On the other hand, for more fragile fabrics, you can only use steam. Water and detergent could damage the fabric and thereby decrease the longevity of your investment.

Solar shades that absorb water should be steam cleaned only. This way pollen and dust residues will be easily removed. See the other advantages to solar shades.

Use your Vacuum

Solar shades are a well designed and durable product. On the other hand, if you don't like the idea of using water and detergent, you can always use the small brush of your vacuum set on low power and run it gently over both sides of your canvas. If you do this regularly, you will keep your ornaments in great condition for a long time.

Cleaning a stain

If you have pets or children at home, stains are part of your daily life. Whether it's a spot of tomato sauce, chocolate or any other stain, children are the champion of producing a healthy amount of stains. If you discover a new stain on your fabric, we recommend using a damp cloth to remove or dilute the stain as much as possible. If the stain has dried, it is recommended to use steam to remove it. It is never recommended to rub very hard to remove a stain. This could break the fibers of the fabric and damage it even further. Use gentle pressure when cleaning solar shades.

The best way to keep your shades in good condition it to maintain them regularly by removing dust or monitoring for stains and attending to them promptly!
