Cleaning Instructions

Alcantara is extremely easy to clean, wash by hand or in the washing machine. Use lukewarm water and neutral soap, do not wring or tumble dry. Drip dry in the shade. If dry cleaning use only perchloroethylene, do not bleach. When ironing use a cloth and steam iron adjusting the temperature to Rayon or Synthetic. To maintain its natural look, just use a soft brush. Spots are easy to remove, just follow the instructions in the spots removal table.
