Any Revolution Performance Fabric is a sought-after choice for durable upholstery use. As the summer winds draw to a close, we want to acknowledge that Romero Linen was one of our bestsellers.
Understandably so. This particular fabric has a fairly neutral color that works in a variety of situations, featuring a chevron pattern in ivory.
Normally with any light toned fabric there’s a concern for spills and stains, which will be much more noticeable. Revolution Performance Fabrics are virtually unstainable, tough, and stand up to whatever life throws its way. This is why the fabric line has been lauded for families with kids and pets. It’s bleach cleanable, while maintaining its color and luster.
Romero Linen Is Eco-Friendly
Revolution Performance Fabrics use no PFC chemicals in manufacturing, which are common in fabric but are under scrutiny by several governments for their affects on the planet and people alike. In addition, the unique process behind Revolution Fabrics also means no formaldehyde, phenols, phthalates, heavy metals, or chemical flame retardants.
In the past many of the aforementioned additives found their way into popular fabrics to improve durability, but at the cost of a negative footprint on safety.
Choices like Revolution Fabrics Romero Linen are made from Olefin, which is also known as polypropylene. Colors are solution dyed by mixing pigments right into the liquid polymer that forms the yarn itself. This means the material itself is that given color, rather than having a fabric with dye added to its surface. If you’ve wondered how Revolution Performance Fabric resists stains so well, this is a big part of that.
If you’ve never used this kind of fabric before, you’re probably curious about how to clean the material. The durability sounds great, you might think, but not if it’s a pain to clean or requires special additives.
Though the manufacturer recommends against machine washing the fabric, you can spot clean Revolution Performance Fabric with basically any household cleaner. Even pure bleach.
Often blotting with water will remove discoloration from spills. But to ensure you’re also killing any bacteria in the fabric, you can use a bleach mixture (or your favorite cleaner). Easy.
The one thing to remember after cleaning, though, is that the fabric needs to thoroughly dry. If it’s a pillow it’s easy enough to set aside for a day. But if you’ll need to use the sofa or furniture sooner than that, you can use a hair dryer on the lowest heat setting to dry it more quickly.
If you’re looking to reupholster a sectional, sofa or chair and want something that stands up to life, Revolution Performance Fabrics are the perfect fabrics for you.
