How do I make the booth seat cover last longer?
Clean booth seats with only soap and water. Do not clean with any products that have alcohol or any harsh chemical cleaners. These chemicals will cause the cover to dry out and crack more quickly. When cleaning under booth, rotate booth seat to the opposite booth seat frame. Most booth seats breakdown on the side of the seat that is first sat on. The other side of the booth seat is more gently used. Do this once per month and the booth seat will last longer.
