View Full Version : Cleaning grill cover?

11-21-2011, 09:00 AM
Hey everyone. I have a pair of Paradigm Monitor 9 floorstanding speakers. I noticed something must have been spilled on the bottom part of the grill cover. The cover has plastic backing, so the speaker itself is fine. Is there any way to clean the cloth exterior of the cover so the stain isn't visible. Thanks?

I'd take it to your local dry cleaner and see what they can do.

Depending on size I would fill the bathtub or kitchen sink with some gentle laundry detergent. Gently lower the grill into the water and move it up and down to force the water through the cloth. Then rinse and let dry. The cloth is probably polyester so it should be fine. I would not scrub the material but let the water flowing through it clean the grill. Good luck!

I have had great luck with fabric foam cleaner, I have to agree with above poster, do not rub hard, but I do rub the cleaner in with a damp lint free cloth, then vacumn. My HPM 100 grills look like new.
