Cleaning is a breeze with Naugahyde® brand fabric and its advanced BeautyGard™ protective finish. While staining and soiling exposures are common to upholstery fabrics, most stain and soiling may be removed by using the simple cleaning methods that follow:*

Step 1 For Light soiling:

  • A solution of 10% household liquid dish soap with warm water applied with a soft damp cloth will remove most soiling..
  • 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 For Heavier soiling not solved by the above method:

  • Dampen a soft white cloth with lighter fluid (naphtha) and rub gently. Rinse with a water-dampened cloth.
  • NOTE: Use extreme caution with this method. Complete only in a well-ventilated area and away from any open flame.
  • NOTE: You should try this method on an inconspicuous spot before using it on the original stain/soiling.

Step 3 For the most difficult stains not removed by the above methods:

  • 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.
  • If necessary, allow a 1:10 diluted bleach solution to puddle on the affected area or apply a soaked cloth for approximately 30 mintues. Rinse with a water dampened cloth to remove any remaining bleach concentration.
  • NOTE: You should try this method on an inconspicuous spot before using it on the original stain/soiling.


  • 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.

Stains such as lipstick, crayon, felt tip pens, ballpoint pen, certain dyed suntan lotions or mustard, etc. MUST BE CLEANED IMMEDIATELY. The longer these and other similar harsh/permanent stains are exposed to the vinyl surface, the more difficult the vinyl will be to clean. In some cases, removal of certain stains is impossible.

CAUTION: When using strong cleaning agents such as naptha or bleach, it is advisable to first test in an inconspicuous area. Other cleaning agents may contain harsh or unknown solvents and are subject to formula changes by the product manufacturer without notice. Should you desire to use other cleaning agents, try them in an inconspicuous area to determine potential damage to the material. Never use harsh solvents or cleaners which are intended for industrial applications. To clean stained or soiled areas, a soft white cloth is recommended. Avoid use of paper towels.
CAUTION: Cleaning products may be harmful/irritating to your skin, eyes, etc. Use protective gloves and eye protection. Do not inhale or swallow any cleaning product. Protect surrounding area/clothing from exposure. Use in a well ventilated area. Follow all product manufacturer's warnings.
