Care + Maintenance for the Alfi Collection

Alfi seats are made of 100% reclaimed post-industrial waste - polypropylene and wood fibers. Therefore slight differences in chair surfaces may occur.

To keep the seats looking beautiful, clean with soap and water and dry with a soft cloth. Bleach may also be used, as well as hydrogen peroxide based cleaners (dilution level 1:10). Wash any film or residue with hot water. Alcohol based cleaners may appear to whiten the reclaimed polypropylene material. Should this occur, we recommend wiping it down with a lubricant such as WD-40 to remove any residue and restore the surface.

Clean the aluminum base with soap and water, and dry with a soft cloth. You can also use Windex®, Formula 409® or similar spray cleaner, with or without bleach followed by a lint free towel. Hydrogen peroxide-based cleaners may also be used, dilution level 1:10. Wash any film or residue with hot water. Do not use Stainless Steel cleaner on any aluminum furniture. For Heavy-duty dirt or oil use a very hot water and strong soap, followed by LIGHT scrubbing in the direction of the aluminum grain with a soft bristled brush or damp Scotchbrite® pad.

Anodized aluminum is corrosion-proof and can be used outdoors, however we suggest cleaning with soap and water every two weeks to remove grit and other air pollutants that can pit the surface.
