Cleaning is a breeze with Naugahyde brand fabric and its advanced BeautyGard protective finish. While staining and soiling exposures are common to upholstery fabrics, Naugahyde’s sulfide stain resistant formulation allows most to be removed using the following methods:

Step 1 Light soiling, the most common of problems.

  • A solution of 10% household liquid dish soap with warm water applied with a soft damp cloth.
  • If necessary, a solution of liquid cleanser and water applied with a soft bristle brush. Wipe away the residue with a water dampened cloth.

Step 2 Heavy soiling.

  • Dampen a soft white cloth with lighter fluid (naphtha) and rub gently. Rinse with a water dampened cloth.

Step 3 For more difficult stains follow these steps.

  • Dampen a soft white cloth with a solution of household bleach (sodium hypochlorite); 10% bleach, 90% water Rub gently. Rinse with a water dampened cloth to remove bleach concentration.
  • Allow 1:10 diluted bleach solution to puddle on the affected area or apply with a soaked cloth for approximately 30 minutes. Rinse with a water dampened cloth to remove any remaining bleach concentration.

Step 4

  • Dampen a soft white cloth with rubbing alcohol and rub gently. Rinse with a water dampened cloth to remove any remaining rubbing alcohol concentration.

NOTE: To restore luster, a light coat of spray furniture wax can be used. Apply for 30 seconds and follow with a light buffing using a clean white cloth.
