Sun protection and upholstery fabrics usually require little maintenance. Coarse dirt can be washed off with water, a mild soap solution, and a cloth or sponge. Let the cover air-dry afterward. Some covers can also be removed and washed by machine. Please note the instructions for washing on the labels. Because of their low weight and large surface area, parasols are susceptible to wind, so please remember to fold and secure your umbrella if necessary. There will be no refund in case of storm damage.
