Performance fabrics

We have all likely been at a family gathering where someone might have been having too much fun, or the one child in the family that is never careful with their meals and accidentally spills their food or drink on the brand new sofa or antique dining room chairs. With typical fabrics, this new stain would tell the tale of this accident for several years to come. However, with Calico’s innovative collection of Performance fabrics, the cleanup process has never been easier, plus the added benefit of NO STAINS to remind the world of that pesky accident.

Calico has been an industry leader in Performance fabrics by incorporating them into their design projects for over 50 years and has accumulated a collection of more than 1,000 indoor and outdoor fabrics with a wide variety of patterns, textures, and colors. Performance fabrics are scientifically engineered to be extraordinarily easy to clean, stain resistant, extremely durable, fade resistant, and odor resistant. Performance fabrics are even durable enough to stand up to your pet’s nails so they can be a part of movie night with the family.

At Calico, we know what makes a great performance fabric, and Calico only offers the best:

– Easy Cleanability with mild soap and water

– Stain resistant, so that spills tend to bead up

– Extraordinary durability, woven to keep their good looks

– Most are fade resistant to survive sun and Glare.

– Odor resistant to outlast kids, cats, and dogs

Maintaining your performance fabrics

Our Performance Fabrics are tightly woven to keep their good looks for several years to come and also help with their stain resistance by allowing spills to bead up instead of soak into the fabric. You can clean the majority of these small spills can easily be cleaned by gently blotting the area of the spill to soak any excess liquid up, and then spray a soap and water mixture followed by gentle scrub from a washcloth.

For more prominent stains, its best to use this method:

  1. Before spot cleaning, blot liquids on the surface with a clean, soft towel and brush off any loose debris.
  2. Prepare a cleaning solution of 1 cup of lukewarm water and ¼ tsp mild enzyme detergent (such as Tide or Dawn).
  3. Apply the solution using a misting spray bottle.
  4. Work the solution into the affected area by lightly rubbing the area with a sponge or soft bristle brush. Avoid scrubbing, and do not use a stiff bristle brush or anything that will scour the fabric. Work from the outside of the stain inward. Rinse your sponge or brush frequently.
  5. Allow the cleaning solution to soak into the fabric for a few minutes.
  6. Rinse thoroughly to remove all soap residue and dirt. Blot the excess moisture with a clean, soft towel or sponge.

Calico always recommends regular vacuuming to prevent dust and dirt from wearing your fabric quicker, as well as having your furniture cleaned by a professional annually.
