Spot Cleaning with Soap & Water for Everyday Spills

This spot cleaning method for stain removal can be used for most light to medium stains.

  1. Before spot cleaning, blot up liquids on the surface with a clean, soft towel and brush off any loose dirt.
  2. Prepare a cleaning solution of 1/4 tsp mild, enzyme detergent, such as standard dishwashing liquid, per 1 cup of lukewarm water.
  3. Apply the cleaning solution using a misting spray bottle.
  4. Work the solution into the affected area by lightly scrubbing the area with a sponge or soft bristle brush. Make sure to work from the outside of the stain inward so as not to spread the stain and rinse your sponge or brush frequently.
  5. Allow the cleaning solution to soak into the fabric.
  6. Rinse thoroughly to remove all soap residues, as residues will attract dirt. Blot excess moisture with a clean, soft towel or sponge.
  7. Repeat steps 3 – 6 as needed.
  8. Allow fabric to air dry.

Spot Cleaning with Bleach for Stubborn or Excessive Stains

  1. Remove any loose debris and blot the stain.
  2. Prepare a bleach-based cleaning solution. Bleach should be diluted with water on a 1:10 ratio (1 part bleach, 10 parts water).
  3. Apply the bleach-based cleaning solution using a misting spray bottle and allow for the solution to soak into the fabric.
  4. Work the solution into the affected area by lightly scrubbing the area with a sponge or soft bristle brush. Make sure to work from the outside of the stain inward so as not to spread the stain and rinse your sponge or brush frequently.
  5. Blot and thoroughly rinse the fabric with water until the stain is cleaned. Make sure that all the bleach is rinsed off of the surface of the fabric.
  6. Allow fabric to air dry.

Q & A

What are InsideOut Performance Fabrics®? 

InsideOut Performance Fabrics® (IOPF) are the first all-in-one performance fabrics that can withstand the elements of the outdoors and all of the messes that happen indoors (perfect for pets and small children)! IOPF pairs superior design with unmatched performance, making it the perfect choice for your home interior, sunroom, or outdoor space.


What fibers are used to make InsideOut Performance Fabrics®?

IOPF achieves high-performance standards by being constructed with a combination of solution-dyed Olefin and a high-energy dyed polyester. This combination offers a level of design and style consistent with interiors but is durable enough for the outdoors. 


Will the finishing on InsideOut Performance Fabrics® eventually wear off?

No! IOPF yarns are inherently stain resistant; meaning the durability, cleanability, and fade resistance are permanent for the life of the fabric.


 Do InsideOut Performance Fabrics® contain PFAS (polyfluorinated chemicals)?

No! IOPF is PFAS-free (including C6). RM COCO is pleased to offer a collection of fabrics safe for your family and manufactured using sustainable, environmentally friendly practices. 


What quality standards do InsideOut Performance Fabrics® meet?

All IOPF products are classified as heavy-duty residential textiles that are also suitable for use in hospitality and commercial settings. Further, IOPF exceeds all industry standards and testing methods for pilling, seam strength, abrasion, and flammability. Every piece of IOPF is inspected for quality before leaving our mill.


Are InsideOut Performance Fabrics® waterproof?

IOPF will repel liquid but is not waterproof. IOPF dries fast, but we recommend bringing outdoor cushions inside during heavy rain storms.


What about mold and mildew?
IOPF has properties that prevent the development of mold and mildew, but please be advised that mold and mildew can grow on dirt and other substances embedded in the fabric.


Will InsideOut Performance Fabrics® fade outside? What about my direct sunlight through windows?
No! IOPF are perfect for the outdoors because they are fade-resistant due to the UV properties of the yarns. This also makes them suitable for any room inside that has direct sunlight.


Do you have a product warranty?
We stand behind our fabrics with a 3-year limited warranty for upholstery and specialty fabrics. See our complete warranty section for details.


What are the best applications for InsideOut Performance Fabrics®?

Are InsideOut Performance Fabrics® compliant with the California TB 117 – 2013 flame retardant requirements?

Are InsideOut Performance Fabrics® disinfectant spray safe?

Are InsideOut Performance Fabrics® Greenguard Gold Certified?

Can I iron or dry clean my cushion casings or anything else made with InsideOut Performance Fabrics®?
