Here is a guide on how to clean your upholstered dining chairs. Read on-

Fabric Dining Chair

Here’s what you’ll require to clean-

Vacuum cleaner

Clean cloth/towel

Rubbing or isopropyl alcohol

Liquid detergent

White vinegar

It is recommended that you vacuum your fabric chair once or twice every week. This will prevent those pesky, little food and bread crumbs, that won’t come off after dusting the chair off and won’t seep into the fabric. Hence, maintain the brightness of the fabric. It is advised to get your upholstered chairs cleaned professionally twice a year to conserve the precious fabric. In case of any inevitable spills, the quicker you get to work, the better; stains that are left to fester only worsens over time. Blot up all the excess liquid with a clean towel or an absorbent cloth. For tea or coffee, take cloth soaked in white vinegar and isopropyl alcohol and gently dab away the stain. For an alcoholic drink, use a towel soaked in rubbing alcohol and liquid detergent, gently rub to remove the stain. It is quite possible you might have to repeat the steps, depending on the severity of the stain. Never use bleach, ammonia or abrasive cleaning products.

Velvet dining chairs

Here’s what you’ll require to clean-

Vacuum cleaner

Upholstery cleaner

Dish soap

Dry cleaning detergent

Soft brush

Hairdryer or fan

Again, vacuuming daily and getting it laundered professionally is one of the best ways to preserve the newness of your upholstered dining chairs. You can use upholstery cleaner if the velvet is made of cotton or polyester to clean any stains. Afterwards, dry it with a hairdryer. For liquid spillages, you can use dish soap and water. Just dip a cloth in the soapy water, rub on the stain gently, use the hairdryer to aid in the drying process and then use a soft brush to restore the velvet texture if needed. Alternatively, you can repeat the same with a dry cleaning detergent.

Faux leather dining chairs:

Here’s what you’ll require to clean-

Paper towels

Clean rags

Dish detergent

Baby wipes

Faux leather polish

Faux leather upholstery chairs are the least maintenance ones, but it is still important to maintain and clean them. To remove the stains, first, dip a cloth in a bucket full of detergent and water then blot the stain off gently. You need to be careful here with the ratio of detergent and water because it can do more damage than good. Baby wipes are a quick way to remove easy stains. If the shine is getting dull, you can spray faux leather polish to restore it to new!
