303® Multi-Surface Cleaner

303 Multi-Surface Cleaner is an all-in-one cleaning agent that is practical for water-safe surfaces, including Sunbrella fabrics. Whether you are getting ready to put your patio furniture out for the season or keep it on display year-round, you can use 303 Multi-Surface Cleaner to freshen up cushions, pillows, umbrellas, rugs, and more. Due to its powerful yet fabric-friendly formula, it’s easy to watch stains and grime vanish by using this residue-free cleaner.


303® Fabric Guard

Sunbrella fabrics’ water and stain repellency is designed to last for several years but may require replenishing after a thorough cleaning. 303 Fabric Guard is designed to safeguard your patio furniture, so liquids bead up and fly off the treated areas before stains even get the chance to form. For example, taking the time to apply 303 Fabric Guard to your patio furniture will protect it so house guests won’t have to feel bad about knocking over a wine glass.


How To Retreat Sunbrella Fabrics With 303

As mentioned in the introduction, Sunbrella fabrics are specifically designed to be durable. Nonetheless, messes are inevitable, and your fabrics may need a deep cleaning every now and then.

Start your refresh by using 303 Multi-Surface Cleaner on your pillows, cushions, rugs, or any other Sunbrella material you wish to retreat. This first step is as easy as spraying the entire surface area until wet. Once ready, agitate these areas with a soft bristle brush or cloth, rinse with clean water if necessary, and allow time to dry.

Once the desired fabric surface has been cleaned with 303 Multi-Surface Cleaner and is dry, use 303 Fabric Guard to provide a protective layer for your Sunbrella fabric. Spray the entire surface area you wish to retreat in a crisscross pattern (once vertically, once horizontally) until wet and allow a minimum of 12 hours to dry. For best results, apply in a well-ventilated outdoor area in temperatures above 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

After you’ve properly cleaned and protected your fabrics, you won’t have to feel guilty about spilling drinks like coffee on your patio furniture because it will bead up and disperse from the surface with ease.
