Outdoor Materials Care Guide

Cleaning Instructions for King Living’s Malibu and Maldives Outdoor Fabrics by Sunbrella®


One of the best ways to keep King Living’s outdoor fabric by Sunbrella® looking good is to brush off dirt before it becomes embedded in the fabrics and wipe up spills or clean soon after a stain occurs.

The quicker you clean spills and stains, the easier they can be to remove.


Try this first:

With a new spill or stain on your King Living outdoor fabrics by Sunbrella®

• Spray with a mild cleaning solution or KingCare® Fabric Cleaner. Gently brush the solution into the fabric and leave for 2-3 minutes, rinse with clean water then wipe over with a soft dye-free cloth or towel and allow to air dry.


General Cleaning

• With a soft brush, remove any debris on furniture.

• Dampening the fabric with a light hosing down of water and clean with KingCare® Fabric Cleaner or a gentle solution of mild soap and warm water (max 40°C); gently brush the solution into the fabric and leave for 2-3 minutes, rinse with clean water then wipe over wiht a soft dye-free cloth or towel and allow to air dry.

• Please do not use a power washer (pressure hoses) to clean or rinse your King Outdoor furniture.

• Apply the KingGuard® spray-on protection at least once every season to maintain the weather resistant properties.


Oil-Based Stains

Immediately apply an absorbent such as corn starch directly on the oil-based stain. Let sit for 10 minutes and remove the excess using a straight edge or ruler. This helps remove the stain and prevents it from being pressed into the fabric. Then proceed with the cleaning process.


Seam-to-Seam Cleaning

When cleaning upholstered pieces, clean the entire surface area of the fabric, from seam to seam, instead of rubbing only the affected area. This method, along with an extractor, may be required in order to avoid water rings and stains.
