How To Care For Your Cushions So They Last A Lifetime

To ensure that your cushions stay in great shape, it is important to follow through with proper care and cleaning. Today, we will discuss the best way to wash and maintain your cushions, so they last a lifetime.

How to Clean Cushions

When learning how to clean cushions the right way, you will come across different fabric care and cleaning instructions. The trick is to understand the right way to clean your particular cushions without causing any irreversible damage.

When cleaning your cushions, use a mild detergent mixed with warm water. You can then use a sponge to spot clean the fabric. Always be sure to rinse out the cushions with clean water to remove any excess detergent there may be. 

Once washed, they should be dried thoroughly before they are stored or put back. If they are not dried properly, you run the risk of mould and mildew. 

Deodorizing

When choosing a detergent or cleaner, find one that also deodorizes. It should be safe for your cushion fabric and should not contain any harsh chemicals. Before cleaning the cushions, it is also recommended that you brush or vacuum them to remove any dust or other debris that might end up settling into the fabric as you clean them.

Scrubbing

Avoid scrubbing the cushions too harshly, or you run the risk of damage. If you have to treat stains, it is better to blot the stain than it is to scrub, or you might just make it worse. 

To preserve the appearance of your cushions, get into the habit of vacuuming or brushing them at least once per week to ensure that dust and dirt cannot settle into the fabric and cause a dingy and dirty appearance between washing.

Looking to replace your old and worn-out cushions? Even with the right cleaning, you may find yourself wanting new cushions. At JustCushions, we recommend cushions that are stain-resistant and family-friendly, making maintenance and cleaning a breeze. 

You won’t feel like your living room is a museum. You will have peace of mind knowing that the cushions you choose are safe around guests and your children.
