A Cleaning Guide For Ottomans

Ottomans are delicate pieces of furniture that require maintenance and cleaning. They are prone to spills and stains, and therefore require an extra effort for maintenance. There are various types of ottomans which are installed all around the house. There are round ottoman, modern ottoman, small storage ottoman, and leather ottoman. The ottoman is paired with other statement furniture to complement the space. But how do you protect them from spills and pet hair?

Here is a cleaning guide to help you keep your ottomans safe from dirt and stain:

Research upon the Material

Before you start cleaning your ottoman, make sure to research upon the type of material it is made of. If it is made of cotton, use a shampoo on a soft cloth. You can also use diluted dish soap to clean the microfiber storage ottoman. For a leather ottoman, use a saddle soap or a vinegar and water solution.

Make Use of Care Tags

The furniture usually comes with a care tag. If you are not sure about the type of ottoman material you purchased, you can look at the tag and care instructions, where codes are mentioned. These codes may be W-S, which means water-based cleaners, or solvent cleaners, and X, which means only vacuum or brush. S means never to use a water-based cleaner.

Clean the Stains Quickly

Don’t wait till a certain point of time when your ottoman gets spilled or has stains. It is recommended to prevent the stains from setting in, and therefore it is necessary to soak the excess stain and dab the liquid before proper cleaning. Check the legs of these furniture as well and clean them with a damp cloth.

Dry Them Out

After you have cleaned properly, you can allow it to dry. It is better to not use it until it's fully dry to avoid more stains over it. If you have a pet, or small children, it is advised to keep them away until it is fully dry. Use them after they are fully dry.
