Default How do you clean microfiber couch cushions?

The covers can be removed from the cushions. Can I machine wash them? Handwash? Do they go in the dryer, or line dry, or what?

I have no idea how you are -supposed- to, but I usually get a kitchen sponge and scrub them with water & dish soap.

As do I, but we tried woolite on some strawberry-smash incidents. I now have soap rings. Augh.

I've been scrub-rinsing them but just get ever-larger soap rings. I think they could use a good whirl in the washing machine, sans soap, but am scared. They're new and all, not like they're on their last legs, but still.

I'm not sure

if you decide to put them in the wash I would turn them inside out and use cold water with a small amount of soap. Then I would hang them to dry. Have you tried googling it? you might get ideas from others who have tried it and what they did or wouldn't do again.

Default Re: How do you clean microfiber couch cushions?

I took the cover off one of my cushions to wash it and then found a tag somewhere that said you shouldn't take them off it was REALLY hard to get itback on, and then the cushion looked funny for a while like thecover didn't fit right. It's fine now though months later.

Default Re: How do you clean microfiber couch cushions?

I regularly put mine in the washing machine. I use cold water, with half the soap in a front loader. At first I just put them in the dryer on a cold air cycle until damp. Now I dry them completely. I was surprised how well they come out because I had a professional steam cleaner tell me that he wouldn't clean my sofas because they would have streaks. I bought a Bissel Green Machine to take care of the rest of the sofa with decent results.

I wash mine in the washer like anything else, regular detergent and pop in the dryer They look brand new when done, everything else I've tried leaves water spots/marks.
