Clean Fabric Bar Stools

Step 1: Vacuum the Stools

Start by thoroughly vacuuming your fabric bar stools using the upholstery attachment. This will remove dust, dirt, and crumbs from the surface and crevices of the fabric.

Our velvet bar stools are designed with easy-to-clean fabrics, making maintenance a breeze.

Step 2: Check the Care Label

Before using any cleaning products, check the care label on your bar stools. The label provides important information about the type of fabric and recommended cleaning methods. Some fabrics may require special care or specific cleaning solutions.

Step 3: Test the Cleaning Solution

Mix a small amount of mild detergent with warm water. Before applying the solution to the entire stool, test it on a small, inconspicuous area to ensure it doesn’t cause discoloration or damage to the fabric.

Our adjustable bar stools feature fabrics that are both stylish and resilient, ideal for busy households.

Step 4: Clean the Fabric

Dip a white cloth or sponge into the cleaning solution and gently blot the stained area. Avoid rubbing, as this can push the stain deeper into the fabric. For stubborn stains, use a soft brush to work the solution into the fabric fibers. Blot with a clean, damp cloth to remove any soap residue.

For an added touch of elegance, our padded wooden bar stools combine comfort with easy maintenance.

Step 5: Remove Odors

If your fabric bar stools have any lingering odors, sprinkle baking soda over the surface and let it sit for at least 15 minutes. Vacuum the baking soda thoroughly to remove any odors trapped in the fabric.

Step 6: Dry the Stools

Allow the fabric to air dry completely before using the stools again. Avoid placing them in direct sunlight, as this can cause fading. If possible, use a fan to speed up the drying process.

Step 7: Apply Fabric Protector (Optional)

Once the stools are clean and dry, you may want to apply a fabric protector spray to help repel future stains and spills. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the best results.
