Upholstered chairs are a great addition to any living space. They come in all shapes, sizes, and colors to add beauty and comfort to your home. However, with daily use, they tend to get dirty, and if not cleaned regularly, they can harbor germs, bacteria, and dust mites. That’s why it’s important to know how to clean the arms of upholstered chairs.
Before beginning the cleaning process, it’s important to gather all the necessary supplies. You will need a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment, dish soap, white vinegar, warm water, a clean towel, and a soft-bristled brush. It’s also important to check the manufacturer's instructions for cleaning the chair, as some materials require special care.
The first step in cleaning the arms of the upholstered chair is to vacuum them thoroughly. Using a brush attachment, gently vacuum the arms to remove any loose dust, dirt, and debris. Make sure to get into all the nooks and crannies, including between the cushion and the armrest, to ensure that all the dirt and debris are removed.
Once you have vacuumed the arms of the chair, it’s time to clean them. Mix together warm water and dish soap in a small bucket. Dip the soft-bristled brush into the solution and begin scrubbing the arms of the chair. Make sure to scrub gently to avoid damaging the fabric. If the arms have stubborn stains, mix equal parts water and white vinegar and apply it to the stain. Allow it to sit for a few minutes before scrubbing it clean with the soft-bristled brush.
After cleaning the arms of the chair, it’s important to dry them thoroughly. Use a clean towel to blot the arms and remove any excess water. Then, allow the arms to air dry completely before using the chair.
Cleaning the arms of upholstered chairs doesn’t have to be a daunting task. By following these simple steps, you can ensure that your chairs remain clean and free from germs and bacteria. Remember to clean your chairs regularly to keep them looking and smelling fresh. With a little bit of effort, your upholstered chairs will remain an attractive and comfortable addition to your home.
