We all love a clean, sparkling banner. However, cleaning your vinyl banner is a delicate act that should be carried out with utmost care.

- Detergents are a huge no-no

What do you use to keep your banner clean? If you’ve been using detergent or harsh chemicals, you need to stop. These cleaning chemicals can cause the color on the banner to fade or damage it permanently. As such, you should only use mild soap mixed with water for cleaning vinyl banners. Don’t forget to wipe off the soap before drying!

- Don’t store while wet

It may be tempting to store your banner while it’s still damp, especially if you’re in a hurry. However, this isn’t advisable. Storing your banner while it’s still wet or damp could cause it to develop molds and an offensive odor. You definitely don’t want your vinyl banner to smell like a gym sock.

- Store properly

Storage is where most people get it wrong with vinyl banners. Your vinyl banner should never be folded as this could cause creasing. Rather, it should be rolled and kept in a cool dry place. Remember to keep it away from sunlight to prevent discoloration or fading. If you’re unsure about how to roll it properly, you could always ask your printer. Proper storage will ensure that your vinyl banner remains in top-notch condition.

- Wrinkles? No problem!

If your banner is stored properly, there are little chances of it developing creases or wrinkles. However, if it does develop wrinkles, you can take care of this tiny problem in just a few steps.

First, unroll the banner on a flat surface such as the floor or a flat table. Place a damp cloth on it and then iron over it.

However, if you aren’t comfortable with this method, you can simply place the banner under sunlight for about thirty minutes.
