Cleaning Your Menus
Updated: Aug 14, 2020
Your menu cover is an investment that we would like to ensure that you get the best benefit from over the years. Here are a few pointers to make sure that your menu covers keep in tip-top condition.
Regularly remove dust, dirt, crumbs, spills etc. at the end of a shift, using only warm water, or very mild soapy water on a soft damp cloth or sponge. Do not use harsh chemicals, spray and wipe, abrasives, bleach, etc. These can destroy both covering materials and embossed images.
Ideally, clean inside pockets with the same sponge every day to avoid the pockets sticking together.
Menu Company Covers are both water resistant and stain resistant. However, there are some products which can leave permanent stains such as pen. Please make sure that your staff do not use pen and remove the menu covers before service begins at the table.
Store your Menu Company Covers in an upright position. Wooden wall boxes are not recommended.
Do not store Menu Covers near heat sources or let them come in contact with stoves, coffee makers, hot plates, etc. Also, do not store them in refrigerated rooms or unheated supply areas that may cause materials to crack. Keep your covers at room temperature whenever possible
Do not let your covers become submerged in water. Do not place in dishwasher or otherwise allow to become submerged in water or other liquid. For instance, do not leave your menus flat on a wet bar top.
