To enjoy the beauty of TAi Products for a longer time, you should follow a few simple cleaning procedures.

For surface soil or stains resulting from industrial fallout, tree sap, insecticides or chimney fumes, the use of ordinary non-abrasive household detergent is recommended. (1/3 cup of detergent per gallon of water)

Use a soft rag, sponge or soft bristle brush to apply the solution. Soft bristle brushes equipped with long extension handles may be used to reach some of the higher areas.

As with any cleaning operation, less streaking will result if the product is thoroughly rinsed with fresh water from a garden hose.


If stubborn stains are encountered, use a heavy-duty cleanser such as "Fantastik", available in supermarkets or "Industro-Clean" available from local Amway Distributors. Heavy soil deposits may not be removable in one application and may require repeated cleaning. CAUTION: DO NOT USE CLEANSERS CONTAINING ABRASIVE PARTICLES, SOLVENT OR AMMONIATED TYPE CLEANSERS OR PAINT REMOVER FOR CLEANING YOUR PRODUCTS. THESE MATERIALS MAY SOFTEN OR ACTUALLY REMOVE YOUR PRODUCT'S FINISH.


Climatic conditions vary considerably from one locality to the next. In some locales, mildew may be a problem. It appears as black spots occurring on the surface dirt and is usually first detected in areas not subject to direct rainfall, such as under eaves or porch enclosures. For removal, prepare a solution as follows and comply to the aforementioned washing and rinsing procedures.

    1/3 Cup Detergent (Washing Powder) 2/3 Cup Trisodium Phosphate (Soilex for example) 1 Quart 5% Sodium Hypochlorite (Clorox for example) 3 Quarts Water
