How To Clean Fabric Dining Chairs: Step By Step Process At Home
⇒ Recognize the Fabric of the Dining Chair
Every dining chair has a different fabric, and different fabric requires different cleaning methods. Only use cleaners that are relevant to the fabric you are working with. If you are unfamiliar with the cleaning products, check the care label on the fabric or test the cleaning products on a small piece of fabric before using them.
⇒ Capture the loose dust By Vacuuming
Begin cleaning the chair by vacuuming it. Always use a vacuum with a hose and upholstery brush attachments, which will help you to get rid of loose dust and crumbs.
Always start vacuuming from the top of the chair to every particular part of the dining chair. Also, don’t forget the undersides and backs of your dining chairs, even if it is against the wall.
⇒ Choose A Cleaning Method Suitable For Chairs
Always refer to the manufacturer’s instructions and fabric cleaning code for better-cleaning fabric chairs. The “W” means you can wash with water. “S” indicates the use of non-aqueous solvents such as alcohol. Spray lightly and wipe off with a white cloth or sponge. “S/W” means you can use either solvent or water, and “X” means use neither, just vacuum.
⇒ Make a DIY cleaning solution
Make your DIY cleaner. First, take one cup of water. Then add 1/2 cup white vinegar. After that, add 1/2 tablespoon of natural dish soap to finish the solution.
Don’t rub the dilute solution into spots or spills because it can potentially stain your fabric chair.
⇒ Use Hydrogen Peroxide For Stains
You can also apply hydrogen peroxide to the stains if DIY solutions do not work. To do this, (use microfiber for best results) and blot the stain.
Test a small area of the affected area to ensure the hydrogen peroxide doesn’t attack the fabric.
⇒ Clean, Rinse, And Dry
Dip a sponge or microfiber cloth into the water and wring it out until it is damp. Wipe down all fabric surfaces, starting at the top of the chair. Work in small sections at a time. Do not over-saturate the chair.
Finally, wipe the fabric chair with a dry towel to absorb as much moisture as possible. Use a fan to speed up the drying process, but avoid direct heat like a hair dryer.
