How to use the skin - Because the hairs can split and subsequently shed if you sit or walk on it, it should be regarded as decoration only. Do not expose to sunlight for longer time, or leave it outdoors as the color may fade. Cleaning - Freshen up by shaking it. The skin can be cleaned by vacuuming: select the lowest level on your vacuum cleaner and clean from top to bottom. You should exercise caution when vacuuming and not do so more than once a year.
