Regular cleaning is recommended to maintain the appearance of the fabric and to prevent buildup of dirt and contaminants. Most stains can be cleaned using warm soapy water followed by clean water rinsing. Stubborn stains - for best results, treat all stains immediately. Wipe stain with cloth dipped in isopropyl alcohol, rinse with clean water to remove any residual cleaning agent and let dry.
