Acrylic is an ideal fabric for outdoor applications, since its naturally resistant to rotting and mildew, as well as to mild acids and alkalines. The fabric used in the Cedarbrook Collection is treated with Teflon® fabric protector, which acts both as a fungicide to protect the fabric from mildew and mould, and as a water and oil repellent. Remember, though, that mould and mildew can still grow on soiling, so all fabrics should be washed periodically at 40°C. Mild mould and mildew can be removed with a mild bleach solution, without adverse effects on the integrity or colour of the fabric.
All of the fabrics used by Bluebay are:
- Mould or mildew resistant
- Weatherproof or weather-resistant
- Machine washable.
