ALUMINUM FRAMES, INCLUDING POWDER-COAT
To keep furniture looking new, use Soft Scrub or similar non-abrasive products to remove scuff marks and scratches. Non-textured frames should be waxed once or twice a year with an automobile paste wax to maintain luster. Wax will make washing and cleaning easier. Do not use paste wax on textured finishes. Instead use lemon oil for protection and lemon soap and water for cleaning.
PVC STRAP FURNITURE
Telescope's Straps can be cleaned using a soapy solution of warm water and Ivory liquid. Hose down to rinse and DO NOT USE pine oil cleansers or harsh abrasives. Straps can be easily replace by the consumer by heating the strap in hot water and attaching it to the frame while hot. As the straps cool down, they will shrink for a snug fit.
Furniture that will be stored outside or in other cold areas should be drained of any water to avoid ice damage in the tubing.
