Upholstery Care & Cleaning Tips
Malinda upholstered product is crafted for many years of comfort and performance. To help keep your upholstery looking new, certain precautions and cleaning instructions should be followed.
All fabrics have a cleaning code. You can learn this code and the published cleaning instructions for the piece or pieces you have purchased.
Any product or technique should always be tested on an inconspicuous area before attempting overall cleaning. Malinda cannot endorse any particular product or cleaning method for fabric. We recommend using a professional cleaning service whenever possible.
Proper placement of your upholstery in a room can contribute to its life. Try to avoid placing your fabric or leather furniture in direct sunlight and maintain a safe distance from a heat source.
As you settle into your new fabric or leather upholstery, “comfort wrinkles” will begin to appear. This is a natural part of the upholstery maturing process. Cushions and pillows should be reversed on a regular basis, where applicable. This keeps the filling evenly distributed to minimize wrinkles and maximize comfort.
Remember to vacuum your furniture often. This will help prevent dust and other debris from becoming embedded in the fabric. Use the soft brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner for leather upholstery.
Leather Upholstery: Frequent dusting or vacuuming with an upholstery attachment is recommended for preventative maintenance. Do not use furniture polish, saddle soap, oils, varnishes, ammonia water, soaps or dusting agents. To help remove soil or stains, take a lightly dampened cloth and using a mild solution of non-detergent soap and water gently wipe the area of the leather that includes the stain. Avoid dabbing the stained area only. Do not rub. Let dry naturally and repeat if necessary. Avoid using ink pens, nail polish, nail polish remover or other harmful products near your leather furniture to avoid spills and avoid placing newspapers or magazines on the surface, as the inks may transfer onto the leather. Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight should be avoided at all times, as it will cause fading.

Casegoods Care & Cleaning Tips
Each piece of Malinda Product is created to provide exceptional performance with minimal care. Attention to a few basic points will help you protect your investment.
Do not place plastic, rubber or hot objects directly on a wood finish. Chemicals in plastic and some rubber may soften or discolor the finish if left in contact with the furniture for a period of time. To avoid these markings, place a strip of felt, leather or cork under accessories.
Fine wood furniture should not be exposed to extreme heat or humid conditions, such as placing it near a heat outlet or an open window. Try to avoid direct sunlight which may cause certain finishes to fade.
Over time, scratches from normal use may be noticed on furniture. These can be touched up with a scratch remover or special touch-up pens/sticks.
Spilled liquids should be wiped from the surface immediately with a soft, slightly damp cloth, in the direction of the wood grain.
Remove household dust with a soft, clean cloth, dusting with the grain. The cloth may be dampened with a furniture dusting-aid product, or a furniture care polish may be used. Follow the manufacturer’s directions on the product. Avoid products that leave an oily film on the furniture since they may cause a clouding of the finish and have a tendency to collect dust.
For stone, metal and other non-wood surfaces, wipe off anything that spills immediately by blotting, avoid setting beverages on these surfaces, do not use abrasive cleaners and use felt pads under object that may scratch.
Occasional polishing with a high quality, non-silicone furniture polish will enhance the beauty of the fine finish. Avoid using oily polishes or waxes.
Every six months or so, there may be a need or desire for a more thorough cleaning of wood furniture. The furniture may be washed with a mild soap intended for that purpose or a furniture cleaning product available in most grocery stores. Following the directions on the product, use a soft cloth and wipe with the grain.

Outdoor Care & Cleaning Tips
Upholstered Seating, Cushions, and Pillows
General Care
To maintain structure and evenly distribute wear, frequently reshape and rotate back cushions and pillows.
Occasionally vacuum your furniture fabrics and cushions using upholstery and crevice attachments to remove all dirt and debris before it becomes embedded in the fabric.
For general fabric cleaning, use the following steps :
> For light cleaning:
* Lightly brush off or blot any loose dirt and light stains.
* Blot or mist spray with a lukewarm water/mild detergent solution. Avoid oversaturating.
* Rinse with water until clean and allow to dry thoroughly.
> For stubborn stains, mold and mildew:
* Substitute the water/detergent solution with a bleach solution of 30 parts lukewarm water to 1-part liquid bleach.
> Refer to our fabric listing on Bernhardt.com for specific cleaning instructions by fabric brand and stain type.
> We do not recommend removing fabric covers from the cushion core.

While fabrics are mildew resistant, spores that create mold and mildew thrive in environments where there is dirt and moisture. To deter build up, keep cushions clean and free of debris. Always remove wet cushions from furniture frames and allow to dry.
If upholstery or cushions require extensive cleaning, please contact a professional.
We strongly recommend storing your furniture under cover or covering it when not in use with our custom furniture covers to protect it from dirt, debris, heavy rain and inclement weather.
Always ensure your furniture and fabrics are clean and dry before covering and storing.

Caring for Cushions and Upholstery in the Rain
Choose the proper instructions based on the cushions specified for your furniture and avoid water standing on the surface of your cushions.
Exteriors Plush Cushions - If moisture does penetrate the fabric, open the zipper of the cover and dry the layer between the fabric and the sealed cushion using a towel. Excess water will continue to drain through the mesh panel on the underside.
Reticulated Foam Cushions - The open cell construction of this cushion allows water to drain through when wet. For saturated cushions, open the zipper of the cover and stand on end with zipper facing downward to allow excess water to drain through.
Back Cushions and Throw Pillows - Open the zipper of the cover and stand on end with zipper facing downward to allow excess water to drain through.

Stainless Steel
The stainless steel product is 304-grade with a powder coat finish. This finish helps guard against corrosion and other deposits, when cleaned regularly. 
Although stainless steel is generally resistant to corrosion, the surface is susceptible to cosmetic deterioration from saltwater and airborne chemicals. Superficial dark spots that may show on the surface do not affect the strength or integrity of the furniture.
To clean these spots and to help prevent stains from building up, use a mild soap and water solution.

Aluminium
Aluminum frames are powder coated and fully welded for strength.
Occasional cleaning of the aluminum frames is recommended using a soft cloth or sponge and a mild detergent mixed with lukewarm water to avoid buildup of salt and other potentially damaging deposits.
Never use abrasive cleaners or brushes.
To enhance and further protect the finish, a high-grade automotive paste wax can be applied to surfaces that are smooth.

Outdoor Fabrics
Malinda product use premium brands, like Sunbrella, to create a unique collection of fabrics designed to perform, endure and correlate beautifully with the furniture. The ultimate goal is to create a premium product that will not only last, but will also elevate the look and feel of your outdoor space.
Outdoor fabrics are made from 100% solution dyed yarns, so the performance features are not just an applied finish but are engineered into the fibers. As a result, each fabric will maintain its rich color and durability through normal wear and tear and exposure to the elements.

Stonecast
The stonecast products are made of a composite of crushed stone, indigenous to Southeast Asia, mixed with resin and/or fiberglass. 
To create some of the sculptural shapes and to provide structure, some of the stonecast products may have an internal frame made from treated wood or metal.
To keep stains from absorbing into the naturally porous surface, immediately blot spills and wipe clean with a soft, damp cloth.
For regular cleaning, use mild soap and water solution. Be sure to rinse thoroughly.
Avoid using chemicals and abrasives, as these will damage the surface.
Avoid sitting or standing water on the surface.
Move the furniture with care.
When not in use or during inclement weather, store indoors or under cover using our protective product covers.
