Guide to cleaning

As a general rule, artificial grass shampoo is the best cleaner. It removes dust, pollen and pollutants carried by the air. If you want to your grass, use clean water spread evenly and dampened without saturating it with water; never use water from a polluted source.

Recent stains

Aqueous : Remove any solid waste with a spatula. Clean any remaining marks with soapy
water.
Non-aqueous (Beer, blood, chocolate, coffee, cola drinks, fruit drinks, sodas, glue, ice cream, milk, mustard, tomato sauce, tea, urine etc.) : Brush the residue using a stiff bristle brush. Rub using soapy tepid water or a non-abrasive household detergent. Rinse copiously in clear water. Wipe the grass using dry and clean absorbent paper towels.

Tough stains

  Non-aqueous : Use a 3% dilution of ammonia.
  Aqueous or oil based :
  1. Paraffin : Scrape off the paraffin and mop up with perchloroethylene.
  2. Tar and asphalt : Scrape the mark and dab with perchloroethylene. Caution: take care to ventilate the area and avoid any sources of heat.
  3. Nail varnish : Mop up with acetone.
  4. Oil paint : Dab with paint remover (e.g. turpentine). Rinse in cold water. Scrape off any remains. Apply perchloroethylene. Repeat these steps if necessary.
  5. Others: Mop up with perchloroethylene and dry with an absorbent paper towel. Caution: take care to ventilate the area and avoid any sources of heat.
