1. Get to the stains quickly. As soon as a spill or stain occurs, get to cleaning it immediately. Waiting too long before treating a stain – even a matter of a few minutes – can cause the stain to set, making it harder to get out.
  2. We use MasterGuard Protective Spray for your rocking chair, don’t be complacent with stains. Whilst this doesn’t stop stains, it goes a long way towards offering additional protection – as long as spills are attending to immediately.
  3. Use a dry brush to remove loose particles. Go over the entire chair with a stiff brush with natural bristles to help loosen stains and bring dust and dirt to the surface.
  4. Vacuum. Before scrubbing and cleaning your chair, use a vacuum to remove any loose particles. This will make it easier to identify and focus on troublesome stains when it comes time to clean.
  5. Clean with baking soda, In fact, sprinkling baking soda over the entire chair will help to remove odors and further loosen stains. You can also use a homemade baking soda solution for any areas of deep-set stains; in a bowl, mix together equal parts baking soda and water. For either the dry or wet solution, let the baking soda sit for 15 to 20 minutes. Once the baking soda has fully absorbed the stain, vacuum it up with a brush attachment. And as with all types of cleaning solutions, always spot treat a test portion of the sofa before cleaning it fully.
  6. Spot treat a dirty spot with Benzine, Vanish or any other clothing stain treatment detergent. If you are unsure if the product falls within the recommendations, test a small area for any discoloration before proceeding. Whether you use a water-based cleaner or a solvent (or both), follow the instructions on the packaging. If the instructions say it is safe to do so, use a soft cloth to wipe away the solution.
  7. If you own a wet and dry vacuum cleaner you will be able to deep clean your upholstered furniture as and when required. Use the recommended furniture shampoo that comes with your machine.
  8. Dry your chair with a soft towel. Pat down any wet areas with a dry towel to soak up the residual moisture. Gently brush off any remaining cleaning solution.
  9. Let your chair air dry out of direct sunlight during the day. If it’s not completely dry by night, let the upholstery air dry overnight, and enjoy a fresh chair in the morning!
