Cleaning Care

Our Clinic Armour products are designed to be washed/wiped down with approved cleaning agents.

The following procedure is our recommended cleaning strategy:

Cleaning Equipment required: soft, non abrasive cloth, cleaning agent in recommended concentrate.   Either spray bottle or wipes are recommended.  Dry towel

Prior to cleaning ensure the cover is fitted well with no loose areas. Firm fit not tight

Any products with logo branding should not be exposed to hot temperatures.  We recommend a cold or warm wash if laundering.      

1. Use an approved cleaning agent - over the entire cover

2. Spread using a suitable cloth

3. Dry any excess cleaning agent off the surface with a dry towel to ensure a film residue from the cleaning agent doesn’t build up. This can leave the surface “shiny” 

This can be removed using a biodegradable detergent based cleaner.

The material has been tested against cleaning agents.

The normal cleaning instructions are to wipe the surface clean with a sponge or cloth with warm soapy water.

Clinic Armour covers can be washed in warm soapy water at up to 95°C.

Cleaning Guide

Do the covers dry quickly after washing?

The speed of drying will depend on the cleaning product used and the air temperature and airflow. For faster drying use a cleaning agent with higher alcohol content, or towel dry after washing.

Detergent based cleaners
will be better for clean marks/stains, but as they are water based will dry slower.
Alcohol based cleaners will dry faster but may not remove all stains.  

It is best to have combination of both available to clean all types of marks.  Please see below for instructions for the best ways to cleaning make up and massage oils.

The product should have a matt finish and if it gets shiny it may need a thorough clean.   

Cleaning over printed logos?

  • Important brief on Labels: Not under warranty.
  • Complies with Australian Standards for clothing garments
  • Better longevity then screen-printing
  • Solvent based labels
  • Heat transfer labels – dry cleaning and ironing will lift labels and compromise quality.
  • Bleach, Acetone and some commercial based cleaners will effect colour and quality of labels.
  • UV tested
  • Friction – continuous rubbing will compromise label
  • If washed in normal washing machine with gentle solutions – manufacturer confident the labels will last over 50 washes.
  • Labels need to be used/cleaned correctly –manufacturer can not guarantee longevity of labels as it depends on use of products.
