Brush off dirt before it becomes embedded in the fabrics and wipe up spills or clean soon after a stain occurs. Blot (don’t rub) liquid spills with a clean, dry cloth. For oil-based spills, apply an absorbent such as corn starch and remove with a straight edge. Finally, spray on a mild cleaning solution of soap and water and then rinse the fabric thoroughly to remove all soap residue. Air dry.
