2. Upholstery Care

For the best results, we recommend using our specially formulated upholstery cleaners on our Accessories Store.

2a. Leather

Secretlab NEO™ Hybrid Leatherette and PRIME™ 2.0 PU leather are naturally resistant to stains and easy to clean. Dirt and light stains are easily removed by wiping down with a slightly damp microfiber cloth. Leave to air dry before using again.

2b. Fabric

Like other fabrics, Secretlab SoftWeave™ Plus and SoftWeave™ fabric may become dirty over time. Simply vacuum up loose particles or dirt. Blot up any spills immediately with a dry cloth or paper towel. Do not rub the fabric, as this may cause the stain to set.

For the most effective stain removal, use our Secretlab Premium Fabric Cleaner.

2c. Suede

Certain Secretlab chair variants feature suede accents. Unlike Secretlab NEO™ Hybrid Leatherette or PRIME™ 2.0 PU leather, suede is not water-resistant. Avoid contact with water.

To get rid of loose particles and dirt, use a dry microfiber cloth to wipe against the grain of the suede. Spills should be immediately blotted up with a dry cloth or paper towel.
