Characteristics of Fabrics treated with GS stain away PROVIDED a spilling is cleansed immediately with a sponge or absorbent towel immersed in lukewarm water, fabrics treated with GS stain away withstand stains either water based (such as coffee, soft drinks, wines) or oil based (such as mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard etc.). It is essential that all spots and spillings are taken care of immediately.

It is highly recommended that as soon as you notice spots or spillings to softly clean those, taking care not to soak nor to rub the fabric hardly but gently in circular movements.

The GS stain away acts as an active stain resistant and durable product giving you the necessary time to remove the spilling and consequently restore the fabric in its original look and appearance provided you take care of the spot or spilling ASAP.

Some stains such as blood, chocolate, ballpoint ink or butter require washing, provided the fabric is treated with a washable fire retardant. In all other cases, professional cleaning is recommended.

Stains as shoe polish, permanent marker or tapenade cannot be removed due to the nature of the stains.

As GS stain away is applied during finishing process in the production plant, GSF cannot accept any liability or be held responsible for any interaction or chemical reaction caused by any posterior treatment or use of dissolvent substances.

Pilling is a typical phenomenon in structure weave fabrics. Pilling is usually caused by the clustering of small fiber particles of dust from clothing on top of the upholstery fabric creating small balls. Next to pilling some fabrics have the property that fibers are raised in use. No real pilling is formed, however, this effect will result in a fluffy look of the surface of the fabric. It is usually a temporary phenomenon and both pilling balls as well as the raised fibers can be easily removed with lint-clippers (pilling razors).
Even after repetitive treatment, the shaving of the excess yarn does not influence the quality and the properties of the fabric.Harder yarns such as yarn with natural fibers and fabrics with coarser / rougher structures tend to pilling faster than others.

  • damage caused by the influence of heat (hot waterbottles, electric blankets, hot liquids, hot objects, etc.)
  • damage caused by improper cleaning methods.
  • pressure marks (these are inherent characteristics of every pile/chenille weave).
  • The faint strié effect contributes to the lively appearance of the fabric, and is not due to a flaw in the upholstery fabric.
