Care Instructions by Collection
To keep your Emeco products looking good for a long time to come, follow the care instructions below. Care instructions are organized by collection.

Navy Collection

111 Navy
Emeco uses 65% recycled PET bottles and 35% glass fiber and pigment to make the 111 Navy Chair ®. Slight variations in color are natural to this recycled material. Emeco’s lightly textured finish will reduce the appearance of scratches.

Daily cleaning
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.

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.

Brushed Finish
Anodizing changes the aluminum surface to aluminum oxide, a super-strong material. 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.

Daily Cleaning
To keep your chairs looking beautiful, clean 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. 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 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.

Scuffmarks
Light scrubbing in the direction of the aluminum grain with a Scotchbrite® pad.

Stains
Treat the stain with the appropriate cleaner (i.e. bleach for coffee, paint thinner for paint) leave the cleaner sit on the stain until the stain is dissolved, then follow the instructions for heavy-duty dirt.

Polished Finish
It takes eight hours to hand polish each piece of Emeco furniture. Each item will exhibit slight variations of handcraft. There is no coating on Emeco’s hand polished items and they will begin to patina immediately upon use. Polished aluminum is non-corrosive and does not tarnish. To keep your polished chairs shining brightly use ordinary car wax. Do not use abrasive cleaners, pads or brushes on hand-polished aluminum.

Daily cleaning
Windex® or similar spray cleaner, with or without bleach followed by a soft, lint-free towel. Wash any film or residue with hot water. Do not use Stainless Steel cleaner on any aluminum furniture.

Light scratches

Wood
Daily Cleaning
Clean the chair with a warm, soapy, damp cloth gently applied to the surface. Do not use any harsh or abrasive cleaning agents.

Solid wood is a natural fiber, therefore, it will shrink and swell with the seasons. Take care not to expose your furniture to extremes in temperature and humidity. Wet surfaces should be dried immediately. Solid wood changes color over time under normal conditions of light exposure, but do not expose directly to sunlight and heat.

Cedar is a softwood, so marks, scratches, and stains may occur through use. The tops are treated with a natural oil finish for outdoor use, which will change color and patina with exposure to light and the elements. To protect and refresh the finish, periodic application of linseed oil to clean and dry cedar surfaces is recommended. Apply an even coat of linseed oil with a brush and let sit for 30 minutes. Rub the oil into the wood with a clean, lint-free cloth, following the grain. Wipe away excess oil with a clean rag. If needed, sand lightly and wipe clean.
