Continuing our Spring/Summer freshen up, today we’ll look at our cushions and sofas.
Remove all your covers and wash them. If they need specialist cleaning, it’s off to the dry cleaners with them.
Now is a good time have your cushion inserts cleaned. This will usually mean dry cleaning, just check the care instructions. Plump your cushions regularly. This will air them and stop the filling clumping over time. If they’re sagging and not staying plumped, it’s time to invest in new inserts. At No Chintz we always have feather inserts in a variety of sizes in stock!
Don’t hang onto shabby covers, if they can’t be mended, they need to be replaced. Why not brighten up for the summer months? Changing your cushion covers is a quick and cost effective way to freshen and change the look of your home.
SOFAS AND CHAIRS
Zip off loose covers and launder or dry clean as per the instructions. Vaccuum any sofa or chair with fabric covers. Any fixed upholstery on chairs and sofas should be vacuumed regularly and steam cleaned at least annually. Have your carpets done at the same time, it’s worth the effort!
