Example of Painted Multi Purpose Cloth

Multi-Purpose Cloth Care Instructions:

When sealed with paint or adhesive, gently clean with soap and water.

When unsealed:

  • If spot cleaning of fabric becomes necessary, the best method for removing the stain is to gently brush the stain off with a soft cloth.
  • Be careful to avoid pressing stain in to the fabric, as this may make stain removal more difficult.
  • If simple brushing does not remove the stain, then a small amount of colorless cleaner (such as window cleaner) may be gently applied and then blotted to remove.
  • Do not scrub stain. This may press stain further into fabric and make removal more difficult.
  • If ironing is necessary, cover the fabric with a PRESSING CLOTH. The iron setting recommended is "Acrylic/Silk" or a temperature of 121°C / 250°F.

Finishing Suggestions for Floor Cloth:

  • Let the floor cloth paint dry thoroughly, this usually is 24 hours.
  • Make sure you let each coat of sealer dry before you paint the next coat.
  • Brush 4 to 6 coats of sealer over front of floor cloth.
  • Brush two coats of sealer onto the backside of the floor cloth.
  • Let dry thoroughly.

Helpful Hints:

6 Tips To Minimize Needle-Holes When Sewing:

  • Use a straight stitch.
  • Use a maximum of 5 to 6 stitches per inch.
  • Use a Mercerized COTTON or a Texturized Polyester THREAD when sewing Blackout lining - these threads tend to plug up needle-holes.
  • Use a Teflon Needle - tends not up as much and increase hole to heat size.
  • Use Loose Tension - this eliminated making oval shaped holes in Blackout while sewing. U
  • se a “French seam ” or “over-lap stitch” to eliminate needle-holes on seam stitches. These types of stitches work wonders and provide a “custom look” to the finished project.
