Whilst our fabrics are designed to be easily cleaned, they are not self-cleaning and require a regular maintenance regime to extend the life of the fitout. Most spills and stains can easily be cleaned with a towel. Just wipe up the spills with a clean cloth.

  • For fabrics that are classified MAT 11 (bleach cleanable) it is important to follow the concentration recommendation and further ensure you rinse any residue.
  • When spot cleaning difficult stains using Crypton Care it is important to work from the outside towards the centre to avoid spreading.  Ensure you rinse any residue.
  • When padding ensure you use a white cloth to avoid any potential migration of colour from the pad.

Crypton Care is also available to purchase from Materialised and is available in 2 formulations:

Crypton Care Purple

suitable for oil based stains.  Butter, cosmetics, crayon, grease, gum, ink, iodine, lipstick, mayonnaise, mustard, nail polish, oil, red drinks, rust, shoe polish, sun block, tar, vegetable oil.

Some stains necessitate the use of both Crypton Care Purple and Crypton Gold.

In addition there is a disinfectant and deodoriser ideal for use after cleaning:

  • Attend to spills immediately.
  • Remove excess soil and apply the appropriate Crypton Cleaner to the stained area.
  • Agitate stain with a soft brush.
  • Allow solution to remain on stain for one minute.
  • Blot up the stain with a dry, white towel, rinse any remaining soap and blot the area again.
  • Repeat if necessary.
  • Once cleaned, use Crypton Disinfectant and Deodoriser. This process will provide a Crypton surface that is germ free!


Always test in an inconspicuous area first. In some instances not all stains can be completely removed.

We recommend that you use Jaes or a similar cleaning company that offer a steam cleaning service on fabrics and upholstery, to do a hot steam clean on your chairs at least once a year. 

This has been proven to increase the life of the fabric by at least 30% and is a very cost effective way of protecting and enhancing the lifespan of your investment.
