FAQ FABRIC CARE AND CLEANING

How to take care of your cushions and fabric

1. How do you care and maintain fabric of a cushion?

  • Once a week, remove dirt from the fabric by lightly brushing or vacuuming your custom cushion and/or custom pillow. This will prevent dirt from entering the fabric and assist in preserving its appearance.
  • Turn or reverse the cushions and pillows on your furniture often so they wear evenly. This will allow you to notice stains more quickly before they become problematic.
  • If you are troubled with wrinkles, use an iron with a “synthetic fabric” heat setting. Do not use steam or hot settings.

2. What is the best way to clean cushions fabric?

  • Lightly brush or vacuum your furniture prior to cleaning.
  • Use a spray bottle to lightly mist your fabric with mild soap and water: 1/4 cup mild soap per gallon of lukewarm water. Use a sponge or a soft bristle brush as needed.
  • Be sure to rinse the item thoroughly to remove any residue that may remain.
  • Allow your custom cushion and/or custom pillow to air dry.

  • Saturate the stained area in the mixture for 15 minutes. Use a sponge or a soft-bristle brush as needed.
  • Be sure to rinse the item thoroughly to remove any residue that may remain.

4. How do you care and maintain a cushion fabric?

  • Do not place your fabrics around heating and cooling vents.
  • For specific fabric care instructions relative to your custom cushion, please visit our Fabric Selection.

  • There is no set timetable for when fabric should be cleaned. The local environment will determine your specific cleaning frequency. The Cushion Pros Team recommends investing time and energy to ensure long-lasting use of your custom cushions and custom pillows.
