You can find bean bag chairs in almost every home. Some people use them as decoration and some people like to take the outdoors either in their yard or when they want to have a picnic somewhere.
They have become so popular that you can find them in just about any fabric – suede, vinyl, leather, cotton, microfiber, etc.
Today, I wanted to talk about how to clean them and which cleaning method you should apply on your bean bag chairs. Of course, it mainly depends on the fabric it is made out of so keep that in mind!
How To Clean Your Bean Bag Chairs?
There are two things you need to do on regular basis – use a vacuum cleaner on a weekly basis to remove any dirt, crumbs, and impurities and clean up spills as soon as they happen. Of course, these two things should be done to any upholstery – not just your bean bag chairs.
Now that we got that out of the way – let’s start with the cleaning!
The first thing you need to do is to check the care tag. It’s the best way to figure out how to take proper care of your bean bag without damaging it!
Then it’s time to remove the washable cover. Check for any stains or spills that you need to remove before you throw the cover in the washing machine. If you notice any stains immediately treat them with a stain remover.
Then throw the cover in the washing machine. Keep in mind that you need to allow it to air-dry rather than using your dryer!
What If Your Bean Bag Is Leather?
If that is the case, then you should avoid throwing the cover in the washing machine at all cost. Instead, damp cloth in warm soapy water and gently wipe the surface.
Once you have covered the entire bean bag, allow it to air-dry. Then you need to apply a leather conditioner in order to maintain the leather soft.
What If Your Bean Bag Has Faux Fur?
Wash the cover in your washing machine on the lowest spin cycle possible. Avoid using your dryer and allow it to air-dry.
Once it’s clean and dry, mix a teaspoon of hair conditioner with two cups of warm water in a spray bottle. Spray the mixture on a small area and use a comb to untangle the fur.
When you are done, use a damp cloth to wipe the cover and let it air-dry again.
