1. Vacuum Cleaner For Daily Cleaning
For velvet furniture, the simplest daily cleaning should be to use a vacuum cleaner to remove the dust and dust that usually accumulates. Don't exceed 5-10 minutes for cleaning. This is a small payment for an elegant piece of the chair!
If you have enough time, brush the furniture with a soft brush before vacuuming. After the surface of the furniture is loosened, the dust inside is easier to clean.
2. If You Spill A Drink, Clean It Immediately
Sometimes we spill the drink or drip it on the velvet chair, leaving stains. In this case, use a cloth with a strong water absorption ability to absorb the liquid as soon as possible. The longer contaminants or liquids are allowed to stay on the furniture, the greater the chance of stains or permanent damage to the velvet. Therefore, those who often entertain guests or have kids at home can consider preparing a cleaning cloth near the velvet furniture to cope with emergencies. If the liquid discharge leaves traces after draining, please wash it with soapy water, or add a few drops of odorless detergent to warm water before cleaning.
3. Test It First Before Using A Detergent
If the stain on the sofa has dried, you may have to use detergent to solve it. You can try the basic formula of "soap + water" first. If it is not suitable, buy related furniture cleaners. But before using it in a large area, please select a small piece of cloth in a relatively hidden place on your chair for testing of the furniture to find out whether this cleaner will damage the furniture. After choosing a suitable cleaner, use a soft cloth dipped in it to clean the furniture and let it dry naturally.
4. Gently brush after cleaning
After cleaning the velvet chair and waiting for it to dry, we may find that the cleaned part looks a bit flat. We can use a soft brush to comb along the original fluff direction for a while so that the cleaned part will restore fluffy and suppleness.
5. Do Not！
Direct sunlight will make your velvet color fade over time. In order to make the chair look brand new, please move the furniture so that the sofa does not set directly in front of the window.
Do not wring out forcefully, because it hurts the tissue of velvet.
Do not pull it by hand, it will cause the fluff to fall off.
