10. How do I maintain it ?
Stains and dirt should be removed with a soft sponge and a solution of water and soap (30º C), possibly mild cleaners.
For a better sliding of the metal snap hooks on the wire it may be necessary once in a while to lubricate the steel cables with 'dry grease', e.g. a bicycle spray with teflon, silicone, ceramic.
Do not use 'karcher style' or other pressure washers for cleaning - this may lead to tearing, violation of the fabric impregnation structure.
