How to clean Alcantara
In order to preserve the beauty of Alcantara it is recommended that regular cleaning is carried out. Don’t rub too vigorously, and we don’t recommend using steam machines.
It is sufficient to dust Alcantara using a soft brush, a dry cloth, or a vacuum cleaner.
After having dusted Alcantara, run a slightly moistened white cotton cloth over it. avoid the use of printed absorbent cloths/papers as they can release ink onto the material.
If the upholstery is removable, it is recommended that you wash it in a washing-machine, following the general washing instructions.
If the upholstery is not removable it is possible to clean Alcantara, by using specific products (Fenice, James, Perrone).
If such products are not available, please follow these instructions:
- dust the material with care;
- moisten a soft cloth or a sponge in clean water, wring it thoroughly and run it over the whole Alcantara® material, making sure not to wet it excessively;
- rinse the cloth or sponge and repeat as necessary. Leave to dry (overnight).
Once dried, in order to restore the material, brush it delicately with a soft bristle brush.
