How to clean Challenger

Challengerís Endurepel Armour performance finish coating means that it has tough anti-stain, anti-bacterial,

and anti-mildew properties, so mild soap and water will clean most stains. If you need to, you can use a soft

bristle brush over stubborn areas. When youíre done, be sure to wipe remaining soap residue away with

clean water and a soft cloth, and then dry the area with a separate cloth to help maintain the fabricís longevity.

 

If you need to use something stronger than soap, Challenger has been tested with common healthcare

and other industry standard cleaners with great results.
