Cushion Care 101: Maintaining the Quality and Beauty of Your Custom Cushions

We have seen a lot of questions online, such as: 

  • What is the care and cleaning of cushions?
  • How do you clean cushion fillers?
  • How do you care for and maintain a cushion?

Well, these are great questions; and you should definitely know the answers before purchasing your custom pillows. Investing in custom cushions can enhance the aesthetic appeal and comfort of your living space. So, in order to ensure their longevity and preserve their pristine condition, it is essential to adopt proper care and maintenance practices. Whether you are looking to maintain outdoor garden cushions or indoor, custom-designed ones, following these guidelines will help you keep your cushions in top-notch condition for years to come.

General Cushion Care & Maintenance Tips

  • Keep Cushions Dry: Prevent moisture build-up by keeping your cushions dry, especially in humid or wet weather conditions. This will help in avoiding the growth of mold and mildew.
  • Vacuum Regularly: Regular vacuuming will prevent dust and debris from settling into the fabric. Use a brush attachment to gently remove any surface dirt and maintain the cleanliness of your cushions.
  • Avoid Prolonged Sun Exposure: Direct sunlight can cause fabric discoloration and reduce the lifespan of your cushions. Limit their exposure to sunlight by using protective covers or storing them in shaded areas when not in use.
  • Use Mild Cleansers: When cleaning your cushions, opt for mild soap or a gentle cleanser to avoid any damage to the fabric or colors. Before applying any cleaning solution, brush away loose dirt to prevent it from further embedding into the fabric.

Cleaning Cushion Fillers and Inserts

  • Submerge Cushion Inserts: If your cushion inserts require cleaning, gently knead them in water. Squeezing the insert in water can help dislodge dirt and debris, maintaining the freshness and cleanliness of the filler.
  • Washing Pillow Inserts: For machine-washable pillow inserts, use a front-loading washing machine with no agitator. Select a delicate cycle with warm water and use a mild detergent for optimum results.
