Care Close during heavy rain and high wind, but open after storm so dirt won't collect in folds. Store for winter clean and dry.
Cleaning Clean either coarse fabric (sun protector) or vinyl with mild detergent and water solution, and rinse with hose. Dry completely before storing. Dry in open position.
Vinyl umbrellas that will not come clean with detergent, may be cleaned with an auto vinyl-top cleaner. Protective vinyl finishes for auto tops or upholstery may be applied when clean. This is easier to do if umbrella is spread on a clean flat firm surface such as driveway or garage floor.
