If it is necessary due to extensive staining, in case of removable upholstery, Alcantara can be safely machine washed.
In case of removable upholstery, Alcantara can be safely machine washed with water at about 30° C and a mild detergent; do not spin-dry.
If there are velcro fastenings along the edges of the upholstery, they must be protected with counter-Velcro before washing in order not to damage the upholstery.
Once the upholstery is washed, let it dry in the open air and brush it delicately with a soft bristle brush.
Alcantara is not to be bleached with chlorine.
If necessary, Alcantara can be ironed, making sure that a white cloth is put between the iron and the product. The base of the iron must not reach a temperature higher than 110°C.
It is advisable to avoid direct contact with steam appliances.
The use of “spray extraction” machines is recommended at low temperatures.
For the cleaning of non-removable upholstery follow the instructions given in the section yearly cleaning.
