you have to be very careful with any bleach product as the chlorine will attack the stiching and weaken it over time.I have tried all kinds of cleaners over the years and so far about the best thing is fantastic and a soft nail brush followed up with a nice wipe of the Tannery vinyl conditioner.That combo kept the pearl white in my power play clean for 12 years,doesn't hurt the thread and doesn't lift the color from the accent stripes.
