Odyssey® Care & Cleaning
ODYSSEY® fabric is finished to resist the growth of mildew. However, it should not be folded and stored while wet. Accumulations of dirt and animal droppings which can support growth of mildew and result in fabric staining, should be removed periodically by recommended cleaning methods.
Periodic reapplication of AQUA-TITE® GREEN water & stain repellent, or a similar post treatment water repellent, should be done.
The pigmentation in ODYSSEY® fabric will not migrate onto upholstery vinyls. If some surface rub-off should occur it can easily be removed with vinyl cleaner of mineral spirits. In areas where vigorous movement of the fabric against a hard surface will occur during use, use of a buffer strip is recommended.
ODYSSEY® fabric may be cleaned with a cleaning solution of 4 ounces of bleach and 2 ounces of mild soap mixed in one gallon of warm (100⁰ F) water. Do NOT use detergents. Use a soft, bristled brush to lift soil embedded in the fabric surface. Rinse thoroughly with clear water to remove soil and soap residue. After thorough cleaning and drying, water repellency may be reduced. The water repellency can be improved by an application of AQUA-TITE® GREEN water repellent.
