Maintaining Your Chilewich Table Mats and Shag Rugs

PLEASE FOLLOW THESE EASY CARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAINTAINING YOUR NEW PLACEMATS:

  • Be sure to store Chilewich placemats flat. Do not fold or allow to crease.
  • Chilewich placemats and runners are easily cleaned by wiping with soap and water or standard tabletop antibacterial cleanser. A high temperature sanitizer can be used up to once a week.
  • We do not recommend running placemats or runners through a dishwasher.
  • Do not iron or dry with a heated dryer.
  • Permanent stains may result when certain food or liquids are left on the tablemat for long periods before cleaning.
  • Substances like tomato, hot pepper sauce, turmeric or mustard may stain lighter color textiles. Wash such stains immediately to avoid permanent damage or discoloration.
  • Should a stubborn stain occur, woven vinyl is very durable and can withstand aggressive scrubbing with a soft-bristle brush and a bleach-based cleaner. This will remove the stain without altering the fabric.


Special care is required for Dhalia Placemats:

  • Do not use cleaning products that contain bleach, ammonia or household alcohol. Top layer metallic foil may be damaged if treated with rough sponges/brushes, harsh soaps or chemicals.
  • Clean with warm water, mild soap and a clean, soft sponge or clean cloth. Do not aggressively scrub. Rinse well and air dry.
  • To sanitize, simply use vinegar and a clean, soft sponge or clean cloth. Rinse well with clean water and air dry.


PLEASE FOLLOW THESE EASY CARE INSTRUCTIONS TO MAINTAIN YOUR NEW SHAG INDOOR/OUTDOOR MAT:
  • Vacuum, shake out or hose off with water to clean. Hang to dry.
  • Good in all weather. Quick to dry.
  • Mold, mildew and chlorine resistant.
  • Do not lay on top of rubber floor or place objects made of rubber on top of the mat.
  • Discoloration of the mat or floor may occur.
  • We recommend that you occasionally lift, move and air out your shag mat.
  • Although our shag mats are mold-resistant, the flooring underneath them may not be.
