Stains should be removed as quickly as possible to eliminate any possible
reaction between the staining agent and the wallcovering. Time
is especially important for removing materials containing colors or solvents
such as ball point ink, nail polish, lipstick, oil, shampoo tints, paint,
lacquer or enamel and some foodstuffs.
Precautions: Excess soiling materials such as chewing gum, asphalt,
crayon, paint, nail polish or tar should be carefully scraped off prior
to other cleaning attempts.
It is desirable to start cleaning with mild ingredients such as soap-detergent
and water. If necessary, stronger cleaners can be used such as
liquid household cleaners (with or without ammonia), rubbing alcohol,
and solutions up to 3% of hydrogen peroxide, turpentine, gasoline or
kerosene. High strength detergents, chlorine bleaches, abrasive
household cleaners, rubbing alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, turpentine, gasoline
and kerosene should first be tried on some inconspicuous portion of tackboard
to make sure that there will not be any adverse effect on print (if any),
color or gloss.
Gasoline, kerosene, and turpentine are explosive and should be handled
carefully. NEVER MIX CLEANING AGENTS TOGETHER-VIOLENT REACTIONS
MAY OCCUR WHICH COULD RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY OBSERVE ALL LABEL PRECAUTIONS
WHEN USING THESE AND ANY CLEANING AGENTS.
Repeated use of stronger cleaners will extract plasticizer from vinyl
wallcovering and it will lose it's suppleness.
Normal dirt—This can be removed with a mild soap
or detergent and warm water; allow to soak for a few minutes, then
rub briskly with a cloth or sponge. Use a soft bristle brush on rough textured
pattern, rinse with clear water, then wipe with clean dry cloth. Repeat
Nail polish, shellac, lacquer—Remove immediately
with dry cloth and be careful not to spread the stain. Go over quickly
with rubbing alcohol and then rinse with clear water.
Paint, shoe polish, rubber heel marks, car grease,
off as much as possible, then clean with kerosene or turpentine. Rinse
thoroughly with clear water.
Ball point ink—must be removed immediately, using
a cloth dampened in rubbing alcohol.
Chewing gum—Wipe off as much as possible (will come
off easier if rubbed with ice cube), then rub lightly with rubbing
alcohol. Can also use kerosene or naphtha.
Pencil, crayon—Scrape off excess crayon. Erase pencil
marks. Wipe any remaining stains with rubbing alcohol.
Feces, blood, urine—Remove these staining materials
quickly; wash stained area using a strong solution of soap and household
type chlorine bleach, rinse with clear water.
