Care + Maintenance
Emeco uses recycled waste plastic bottles (rPET), glass fiber and pigment to make the 111 Navy Chair®. Slight variations in color are natural to the recycled material. Emeco’s lightly textured finish will reduce the appearance of scratches.
Use Windex® or similar spray cleaner, with or without bleach followed by a soft, lint free towel. Wash any film or residue with hot water. Rinse with clean water, using a clean, nonabrasive cotton cloth. Dry the surface with a soft, clean, non-abrasive cotton cloth.
Hydrogen peroxide-based cleaners may also be used, dilution level 1:10. Wash any film or residue with hot water.
Normal maintenance and light scratches:
Lemon Pledge or Armorall® (generically: spray wax with silicone) or Isopropyl Alcohol. Rinse with clean water, using a clean, non-abrasive cotton cloth. Dry the surface with a soft, clean, non-abrasive cotton cloth.
Abrasive pads, scouring powders or cleaners may permanently dull and scratch the rPET surface making it susceptible to staining. Never use cleaners containing acid, alkali, or concentrated sodium hypochlorite. These cleaners may mar, etch, corrode, and permanently discolor the surface.
Glides are the small "feet" at the bottom of each chair leg. Adding new glides - and making sure you have the right type of glides for your floor - can make the world of difference and breathe new life into your product. Learn more.
