This delicate fabric can be damaged by friction, such as a full length dress on a shoe, or a bag brushing against a leg. With wear, the fabric will lose a small amount of glitter and as this is the nature of the fabric, it is not considered to be a fault. If an area of the product becomes bald, the glitter cannot be reapplied. We therefore recommend glitter fabric merchandise is handled with utmost care. Do not treat with any liquids containing alcohol as this will cause permanent damage.
We advise to simply wipe off the fabric to remove dirt, food, surface stains, etc. Do this on a consistent basis, so that dirt and grime don’t accumulate and damage the fabric to the degree that it can’t be restored or can't look its best. Never use harsh cleaning solvents or cleansers on your vinyl fabric, particularly cleaners that are abrasive. Some commercial spray cleansers may be an exception. Check on the cleaning products container for proper use of the product. If you’re not sure the cleaning solution you are using will be safe to use, apply a small amount to a patch of fabric that is not readily visible. In this way, you can test your cleaner without risk of discoloring fabric that will be easily seen.
