How to Clean InsideOut patterns

General Cleaning Instructions

  • Because dust and dirt build up cause fabrics to wear faster, it is recommended to vacuum regularly with an upholstery attachment.
  • Flip, rotate and fluff removable cushions regularly to ensure even wear and increase longevity.
  • An annual professional cleaning will keep the upholstered furniture looking it’s best.
  • Maintenance requires promptly treating spots and stains which should include routine, on-going care to reduce soil build-up on a fabric’s surface.
  • Excessive brushing and/or rubbing may create fuzzing.

Spot Cleaning with Soap and Water (for light to medium stains)

  1. Before spot cleaning, blot up liquids on the surface with a clean, soft towel and brush off any loose dirt.
  2. Prepare a cleaning solution of ¼ teaspoon mild enzyme hand washing dish detergent with 1 cup of lukewarm water. For larger stains, double or triple the ingredients proportionally.
  3. Apply the cleaning solution using a misting spray bottle.
  4. Work the solution into the affected area by lightly cleaning the area with a sponge or soft bristle brush. Make sure to work from the outside of the stain inwards so as not to spread the stain. Rinse the sponge or brush frequently.
  5. Allow the cleaning solution to soak into the fabric.
  6. Rinse thoroughly to remove all soap residues, as residues will attract dirt. Blot excess moisture with a clean, soft towel or sponge.
  7. Repeat steps 3-6 as needed.
  8. Allow fabric to air dry.

Spot Cleaning with Bleach (for stubborn or excessive stains)

  1. Remove any loose debris and blot the stain
  2. Prepare a bleach-based cleaning solution: Bleach should be diluted with water using a 1:4 ratio.
  3. Apply the bleach-based cleaning solution using a misting spray bottle and allow for the solution to soak into the fabric.
  4. Work the solution into the affected area by lightly cleaning the area with a sponge or soft bristle brush. Make sure to work from the outside of the stain inward so as not to spread the stain. Rinse the sponge or brush frequently.
  5. Blot and thoroughly rinse the fabric with water until the stain is cleaned. *Make sure that all of the bleach is rinsed off of the fabric*. Any bleach left on the fabric will assist in early degradation (shortening the lifespan) of the fabric.
  6. Allow fabric to air dry.
