Have you ever experienced that your favorite umbrella that you bought with much effort was damaged immediately?

Here are some simple ways to care for your umbrella so that you can use it for a long time.

before using umbrella

Forcing the umbrella to open may cause damage such as tearing the fabric or breaking the bones.

Shake lightly 2-3 times to loosen the pleats before opening.

Open the folding umbrella after fully extending the inner shaft (middle stick).
If you pull it out strongly, the bone will break, so be gentle and polite.

If you touch the fabric or handle with hand cream, sun cream, disinfectant, etc. on your hands, it may cause discoloration.

Be careful not to touch it sticky.

after using umbrella

If you fold it while it is still wet and store it as it is, it may cause deterioration of water repellency and waterproofing, color transfer, rust and mold.

After use, be sure to dry completely in the shade before storing.

When drying, avoid direct sunlight as this can cause fading, surface treatment and damage to the fabric.

how to remove stains

First, lightly wipe the entire dirty area with a dry towel.

Next, dilute the neutral detergent about 10 times and put it on a sponge to wash off the dirt.

Scrubbing too hard can damage the fabric, so rub gently.

If it falls, wipe off the detergent thoroughly with a towel containing clean water.

Finally, apply a waterproof spray (water repellent spray).

Apply from a distance of about 20-30 cm.

Lightly shade and dry completely, then fold neatly along the crease.

As you can see in the image, hold the ends of the pleats tightly and wrap them around to fold them neatly.

If you leave it open, it may get entangled with other umbrellas and cause your bones to break, so store it folded.
