With these 6 tips, you can learn how to keep your white upholstery fabric chair looking fresh.



Here are 6 Easy Ways how to clean your white upholstery fabric chair:

Tip 1: Use a Spot Cleaner - Cleaning white upholstery using a spot cleaner is very simple. It is best to catch the stain when it is relatively fresh, but as a busy parent that may not always be feasible. Fear not, many stain removers are made to remove set in, difficult stains. First, you’ll use a clean cloth to gently remove the outer, surface level, stains. Then you’ll spray the stain remover solution on the stain and allow it to sit for approximately five minutes. Lastly, dab at the stain with a clean absorbent cloth. This should remove the stain, however if the stain remains stubborn, repeat the steps as necessary. Just because the chair is white, does not mean you should try to add bleach to remove a stain. This could ruin the fabric of your glider. Using a safe spot cleaner is a quick and easy option for how to clean white upholstery.

Tip 2: Vacuum - White chairs, along with all fabric and upholstery chairs, naturally collect dust and hairs that can become visible. Using a vacuum to clean your white upholstery is easy. Be sure to utilize the vacuum’s upholstery attachment. It is specifically made to gently, yet thoroughly remove crumbs or hairs from all over your glider. It is important to use a powerful vacuum with a thin nozzle to be able to get all of the debris out of the gliding mechanism too. A vacuum is a quick, easy way to keep your white upholstery fabric chair clean.

Tip 3: Use a Lint Remover Tool - A lint remover tool can pull up some of the dust and hair on your white nursery recliner, but also some types of fabrics pill, and it might show a little more on the white fabric. It’s not ideal, but there is a solution to handle it. A small battery operated fabric shaver tool, works perfectly to help maintain the pristine look of your white glider. Gently rub the shaver over the pilling areas on the back and armrests, and then go over it with a lint roller if needed, and watch it remove the little unwanted balls of fabric. Follow tool's instructions for use.

Tip 4: Use a Blanket - A nursery recliner will begin to look most used on the armrests where you rest your arms while holding your baby. A great way to keep these armrests looking as white as they were the day you bought them is by using blankets to cover the armrest. Any soft throw or perhaps a cute baby swaddle, will protect your chair and adds some color!  The best part is, if the blanket gets spilled on you can remove it and wash it and your white chair will be spared.

Tip 5: Annual or Semi-Annual Professional Cleaning - When considering a professional clean for your glider, you can rent a steam cleaner and follow the instructions to clean your chair yourself, or hire a professional. Professional upholstery cleaning will kill germs and remove dust and grime leaving your recliner clean and fresh. With a professional you will feel more secure that the cleaning will be done right. Professional cleanings can be done every six months or yearly to keep your chair looking fabulous. A professional clean is a great way to keep your white upholstery looking brand new.
