How are Revolution Performance Fabrics® so stain resistant?
OLEFIN, also known as POLYPROPYLENE, is a unique material because it is totally inert… that’s why milk jugs are made from Olefin. Revolution Performance Fabrics® are made from Olefin yarn that is SOLUTION DYED by mixing pigments in the liquid polymer. The color becomes an integral component of the yarn—That is why it’s VIRTUALLY UNSTAINABLE.
How do I clean Revolution Performance Fabrics®?
Revolution fabrics can be cleaned with almost any household cleaner—even pure bleach will not damage our fabric. Most stains can be blotted and cleaned with just water, but we recommend mixing some BLEACH in the solution to kill any bacteria that might grow. Whatever cleaning product you use, it is important to thoroughly RINSE the fabric with clean water and allow the fabric to AIR DRY.
