Crypton® Fabric Care

Throughout the years Crypton has recommended that a mild powdered enzyme detergent mixed with water is a very effective way to clean Crypton. It still is. If you choose to use an enzyme detergent, mix 5 parts water with 1 part enzyme detergent (like Tide® / Cheer®).


Easy Cleaning Steps

  1. Apply the soap and water solution to the spot.
  2. Work area using soft brush or edge of spoon from outside of spot towards the middle.
  3. Allow solution to work for approximately one minute.
  4. Extract with clean water or blot with clean soft white towel.
  5. Repeat as necessary until spot is removed.
  6. Rinse with clear water and blot as a final step to rinse away soap.

Helpful Hints

  • Before cleaning, vacuum the upholstery.
  • Never spread the spot to the surrounding clean fiber.
  • Go slowly; repeat the steps until the spot is removed.
  • Do not use a stiff brush that may scratch or tear fibers in the fabric.
  • Always seek to reduce the size of the spot.
  • As always, test the soap and water solution in a hidden area before proceeding.

Water Extraction Cleaning

Water extraction cleaning is another fine method of thoroughly cleaning Crypton. Spots can be removed by pre-treating them with the soap solution outlined above or a pre-treatment solution from an upholstery cleaning company. Most solutions provided by these companies are acceptable for Crypton fabrics.
