Tips on Cleaning Your Custom Umbrella

Cleaning Your UmbrellaThe majority of panels on branded daily use umbrellas are composed of nylon or polyester (with additional waterproof coating). Nylon is an incredibly durable material that can withstand all sorts of weather, but it’s easy to take this durability for granted. Even hardy products like umbrellas need a clean sometimes, particularly if they end up with mud spatter during bad weather.

Clean Your Custom Branded Umbrella

The best way to clean your custom nylon umbrella is by gently scrubbing it down with a washcloth soaked in warm water. This should remove any mud or dirt without damaging the nylon fabric. If your umbrella has built up mould or needs a deep soak, please refer to the cleaning instructions packaged with the product before treating it with chemical cleaners. Some harsh chemicals can strip back the nylon’s waterproofing, so always double check the manufacturer’s recommendations before applying store bought cleaners to your umbrella.

Safe Cleaning Tips for Nylon and Polyester

Outdoor umbrellas can sometimes be made of polyester rather than nylon. Polyester umbrellas are designed for prolonged exposure to the elements, however they can fade after a period if not properly cared for. That's why regular gentle cleaning with warm water is the best way to keep them in showroom condition. As with nylon umbrellas, if you're considering using harsh chemical cleaners please ensure you refer to the manufacturing information first to make sure it's safe for your customised umbrella.

Taking Care of Your Umbrella

Umbrellas are items designed for long term use. If you treat your custom printed umbrella with care then it will last you for many years to come.
