Faux Leather

NYTEK®, a specially engineered nylon fiber matrix, is designed with a built-in stain resistant finish that will not wash or wear off and does not require a topically applied spray. The following simple cleaning methods will ensure the long-lasting beauty and elegance of these NYTEK® products.

Ordinary Cleaning
Ordinary dirt, smudges and water-soluble stains such as coffee, tea, juice, soft drinks, milk, beer, and wine can be removed with mild soap and water. Use a clean cloth or soft sponge to dab the stain with soapy water. Remove the soap solution by wiping the area with a cloth and clean water. Dry with a soft lint-free cloth or towel.

Stubborn Stains
Very stubborn stains or non-water soluble stains can be removed with a mild solvent such as naphtha (lighter fluid, paint thinner). Lightly wipe the stain with a clean cloth moistened with solvent. Blot the area with a dry cloth and dry.

Ink and Magic Marker Stains
Many ink and magic marker stains can be removed using a solution of one part Wisk detergent and one part rubbing alcohol. Dab lightly with a moist cloth, but do not rub. As the ink loosens, blot the area with a dry cloth. Repeat if necessary. Rinse with a cloth dampened in clean water, and dry with a soft cloth.

Commercial Installations
For general cleaning of commercial installations, use mild soap and water. Avoid using cleaners containing abrasives or bleach. Disinfectants can be used provided they are evaluated beforehand. Technical bulletins outlining specific cleaning and disinfecting procedures for NYTEK® products used in healthcare applications are available.
