Cleaning PVC

Post by Izzitpvc » April 12th, 2019, 10:31 pm

Hi,
Hoping somebody might be able to help/advise. I have just added to my PVC collection, items from a well known manufacturer here in the UK. My query has anybody used this product BeGLOSS special wash vinyl cleaner. Reading the review I found on the internet it would appear to be ok to use on my PVC clothing.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Can't help you there but I just use a wet cloth to wipe mine down then a dry soft cloth to dry it off.

Many thanks for the advice, I have now received a reply from the company (PUL) about cleaning PVC after wearing/other actions the PVC, they suggested washing in "warm water" with soap, BUT TO ENSURE ALL THE SOAP IS RINSED OFF" I have just purchased unscented/pure bar of soap from a local supermarket so I will give it a go in due course.

I never gave soaping it up whilst wearing much thought before, I was always under the impression that soap would be the "death" of the PVC, this could be the answer to another problem that I was thinking about, using the soap with garments on means that I do not have to remove them first, wash them and then wash the soap off, whilst enjoying and enhancing the experience all at the same time. brilliant.

Yes, but can you cope with the tumble drier after?
