Cleaning & Care
The spot cleaning method of stain removal can be used for most light to medium stains.
- Before spot cleaning, blot up liquids on the surface with a clean, soft towel and brush off any loose dirt.
- Prepare a cleaning solution of 1/4 tsp mild, enzyme detergent, such as Tide®, Woolite® or Dawn® dishwashing liquid, per 1 cup of lukewarm water.
- Apply the cleaning solution using a misting spray bottle.
- Work the solution into the affected area by lightly scrubbing the area with a sponge or soft bristle brush. Make sure to work from the outside of the stain inward so as not to spread the stain and rinse your sponge or brush frequently.
- Allow cleaning solution to soak into the fabric.
- Rinse thoroughly to remove all soap residues, as residues will attract dirt. Blot excess moisture with a clean, soft towel or sponge.
- Repeat steps 3-6 as needed.
- Allow fabric to air dry
Crypton Home utilizes the same “repel and release” technology as Crypton, but is tailored for use in the home. Each fiber of Crypton Home is encapsulated with our patented technology through an immersion process, so it never breaks down its resistance to stains, moisture, and odors.
Crypton Home is processed without an integrated moisture barrier, and should be specified in suitable environments.
No. Crypton has been improving its technology for over 20 years. Our new and advanced 2.0 technology does not affect the look or feel of the fabrics we process.
Yes, Crypton Home has the same breathable qualities as any other home upholstery fabric.
It is not suggested that Crypton Home be used for outdoor applications. Crypton Outdoor fabric was developed specifically for outdoor use. It has all the features of Crypton PLUS enhanced anti-microbial protection and UVresistant fibers, which resist fading for at least 1000 hours.
Crypton Home is the only fabric that meets or exceeds all of the following heavy duty requirements: stain resistance, water resistance, abrasion, flammability, and resistance to fungal and bacterial growth.
Crypton Home passes Cal 117, UFAC, and NFPA 260.
Yes. Crypton Home’s exceptional protection from stains, odors, moisture, and mildew makes cleaning a breeze! Most new stains come off with a clean, damp cloth and water. For more stubborn stains, a mild soap and water mixture is very effective. More cleaning tips are available on our Cleaning & Care page.
Many cleaners have high alkalinity (soap) levels, and when used on fabric they leave behind a soapy residue that attracts new dirt very quickly.
Crypton Home prohibits the growth of molds, like Aspergillus niger, and bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus and K. pneumoniae. Our fabric process also includes chemistry that prohibits bacteria and mold from spreading.
No. Because our chemistry is permanently integrated into the fibers themselves, our chemistry will never wear off, but highly-allergic individuals may want to verify use with their doctor.
No. Crypton Home fabric is third-party-certified as containing ultra-low or no VOCs. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) can be emitted from products over time into the air, adversely affecting indoor air quality. Crypton technology also does not add formaldehyde to fabrics.
No. PFOS and PFOA are considered persistent organic pollutants (POPs),
so Crypton has developed an environmentally-preferable C6 chemistry for all
of its fabrics that avoids the use of these POPs.
Yes, Crypton Home fabric’s performance technology does not affect its
ability to be recycled. A common outlet for recycled fabric is shoddy, which is
used in making carpet padding and rear parcel shelves in cars.
Crypton is proud to support American workers and American textile mills.
We do all of our processing in our state-of-the-art, environmentally
responsible facility in Kings Mountain, North Carolina. All research and
patented chemical formulations are also developed and made in the USA.
