So, how do you properly care for your tables? Follow the suggestions provided by Custom Craftworks, a top manufacturer of professional, well-built massage tables.

After Each Client

Clean your table with a mild cleaning solution.

  • Using a solution of 10% mild household liquid dish soap and warm water applied with a soft, damp cloth works best. This will keep the upholstery colors vibrant.
  • After you clean with a mild dish soap solution, rinse with clean water, and thoroughly dry.

For Stickiness or Stains

  • Make a solution of Fantastik® and water or Formula 409® and water [1:1 ratio].
  • Use a water dampened cloth and rub and dab gently until the stain lifts.
  • Rinse with clean water and dampened cloth.

For Difficult Stains

  • Dampen a soft [white] cloth with a solution of household bleach and water [10% bleach: 90% water].
  • Rub gently and rinse with a water-dampened cloth until the bleach concentration is gone.

Fantastik

Try a Disinfecting Wipe

  • A natural alternative to mixing solutions is the disinfectant wipe Protex Ultra Disinfectant Wipes alcohol, bleach, and solvent-free.

What NOT to Use

  • Do not use improper cleaning agents that crack, dry out, and destroy your vinyl.
  • Using the wrong cleaning agents can result in a VOIDED warranty.
  • Do not use any cleaning agents that contain alcohol, harsh chemicals, or abrasives.
  • When in doubt, give us a call!

  • Wash in cold water on the gentle cycle to avoid friction.
  • Add one cup of white vinegar to the rinse cycle and DO NOT USE detergent.
  • Adding vinegar will allow the fiber to expand, creating softness and will preserve the long-lasting color.
  • If using a front-loading washing machine, use the extra water setting.
  • Tumble dry on warm or use medium heat on a gentle setting or remove from dryer while sheets are still slightly damp.
  • DO NOT USE dryer sheets as they cause friction allowing the flannel to pill over time.
