Care Instructions

"Carefree Instructions" might be a better way to put it. One of the things consumers and designers alike appreciate most about Ultrasuede® is how easy it is to keep looking beautiful—and feeling soft and plush—for years to come.
Everyday Upkeep
A quick once-over with a lint brush will restore the sensuous nap and soft luster of Ultrasuede®. Periodically, it’s also recommended to vacuum the fabric and then dust it gently but thoroughly with a well-wrung damp cloth or sponge. Take care not to get the fabric too wet. Redampen your cloth or sponge in clean water, wipe again and let dry overnight. Once completely dry, rejuvenate the fabric with a gentle brushing.
Laundering/Dry Cleaning
Ultrasuede® is designed to be machine-washable. However, it is often combined with materials (for lining and the like) that don't stand up to a washing machine. So be sure to check the manufacturer's care instructions first.
All Ultrasuede® fabrics can be dry-cleaned except for one shade of clear white used for some garments. Again, check your manufacturer's care instructions for details.

Ironing and Storage of Ultrasuede® Garments

Wrinkle-resistant Ultrasuede® products almost never require ironing, but if you do iron Ultrasuede®, brush the fabric with a lint brush in one direction and make sure to use a pressing cloth and to press the fabric gently, with your iron set at or below 120ºC/250ºF ("Synthetic Fabrics," "Low"). For storage after dry cleaning, wrap your Ultrasuede® garment and hang it in an insecticide- and mothball-free space on a clothes hanger so that it maintains its shape.

Spot Cleaning

For spills, gently pat the spilled liquid with a paper towel. This will take care of most spills. For dried-in soiling, coffee stains and the like, you’ll obtain the best results by gently brushing the stained area. Vacuuming up the dried material is also effective.


  • Next, take two rags, one soaked in ethyl alcohol, the other clean and dry. Pat the stained area from the outside in with the alcohol-soaked cloth, then pat the loosened dirt and oil off with the dry cloth.

  • Repeat depending on degree of soiling.

  • After removing the stain, let the fabric dry completely before using.


Never pour a cleaning product directly onto Ultrasuede®. If you use ethyl alcohol, make sure the room is well-ventilated and avoid contact with open flames.


Chewing Gum and Wax

Put ice in a plastic bag and place on the stain. Once the material hardens, gently chip it away and then treat with ethyl alcohol. Rinse with clean water.

Stubborn Stains

Try repeating the treatments described above; even stains that are not water-soluble often require subsequent treatment with water.

Old Stains of Unknown Origin

First treat with lukewarm water, then rinse by blotting with clean water. If the stain begins to dissolve, repeat the treatment as often as necessary and let dry thoroughly. If staining persists, try treating with ethyl alcohol.
