Sofa Cleaning TipsUpdated a month ago

Our sofas are intended to be simple to clean. Scroll through to see specific cleaning instructions for your particular sofa. Please note that we never advise removing cushion covers for any reason or putting any component of your seating in the washer or dryer.

Indoor Furniture

Performance Basketweave: Chorus, Field, Mambo, Nomad, Range, Shift, Vesper 

Blot stains with a solution of warm distilled water and bleach (1 tablespoon of bleach per 4 cups of water). Allow to soak into the stain. If possible, place a towel between the cover and cushion to absorb any excess moisture. Thoroughly rinse with additional warm distilled water until clean. Allow to air dry.

Please note that using tap water instead of distilled may result in water stains. Do not machine wash, steam clean, iron, or remove covers for any reason. 


Performance Chenille: Field, Union 

For day-to-day care, use a lint roller or a vacuum for dust, dander, and hair. For spills, absorb the excess with a clean towel, then blot with a solution of warm, distilled water and a mild detergent or dish soap such as Dawn dish soap. Dawn is recommended as it will pull any grease out of the stain. Rinse with a clean towel and additional distilled water. Allow to air dry. 

Please note that using tap water instead of distilled may result in water stains. Do not machine wash, steam clean, iron, use bleach, or remove covers for any reason.


Performance Flat Twill: Field 

For day-to-day care, use a lint roller or a vacuum for dust, dander, and hair. For spills, absorb the excess with a clean towel, then blot with a solution of warm, distilled water and a mild detergent or dish soap such as Dawn dish soap. Dawn is recommended as it will pull any grease out of the stain. Rinse with a clean towel and additional distilled water. Allow to air dry. 

Please note that using tap water instead of distilled may result in water stains. Do not machine wash, steam clean, iron, use bleach, or remove covers for any reason.


Performance Velvet: Nomad, Pica 

For day-to-day care, use a lint roller or a vacuum for dust, danger, and hair. To restore an even pile pattern, use the included velvet brush or your hand to brush the material in one direction. For spills, absorb the excess with a clean towel. If the contaminant has hardened, gently scrape away. Blot the area with a solution of warm, distilled water and mild detergent or dish soap such as Dawn dish soap. Dawn is recommended as it will pull any grease out of the stain. Rinse with a clean towel and additional distilled water. Allow to air dry. 

Please note that using tap water instead of distilled may result in water stains. Do not machine wash, steam clean, iron, use bleach, or remove covers for any reason.


Top Grain Leather: Field, Lodge, Mambo, Nomad, Vesper 

Keep out of direct sunlight and away from sharp objects. Dust regularly. Wipe up spills immediately. If necessary, you may use a cloth or sponge dampened with water to gently blot the area without force. Allow to air dry. 

Because of the special finish we use on our leather, we do not advise using any cleaning agents, even those specifically designed for leather. Do not use a hair dryer to speed dry time. Please note that using tap water instead of distilled may result in water stains. Do not machine wash, steam clean, iron, use bleach, or remove covers for any reason. 


Wood 

A light dusting should maintain your furniture on a regular basis. For spills, we recommend a gentle cloth and water within 12 hours of exposure. If you use a cleaning agent, only use products specifically made for use on wood or else you could damage the beautiful finish.


 

Outdoor Furniture 

Dunes: 

Fabric: For day to day care, remove hair and debris with a lint roller or a soft-bristled nylon brush. Soak up excess water with a microfiber or lint-free towel. For spills, absorb the initial spill with a clean towel. Spot clean with warm, distilled water and a mild detergent as soon as the stain occurs. We recommend Dawn dish soap as it will help pull any grease out of the stain. 

Do not use bleach solutions as they can affect the water-resistant treatment. We recommend utilizing furniture covers when not in use to minimize aging and provide protection from the elements. Do not machine wash, steam clean, iron, or remove covers for any reason. 

Teak: Out of the box, our teak is a honey brown color that naturally weathers to a beautiful silvery gray patina. This weathering process is to be expected and will vary depending on climate, exposure to the elements, and care and maintenance.

To maintain the out-of-the-box honey brown color, you may use Golden Care Teak Cleaner and Golden Care Teak Protector. Be careful to use these products according to their use instructions. For more information on our teak furniture, please see our article about Dunes


Relay: 

For day-to-day care, remove hair and debris with a lint roller or a soft-bristled nylon brush. Soak up excess water with a microfiber or lint-free towel. Clean the metal frequently with a sponge or soft-bristled brush, mild soap, and water. Pay special attention to the underside of furniture and weld joints. Avoid abrasive cleaners as they can take off the protective finish. We recommend utilizing furniture covers when not in use. 

For spills, absorb the initial spill with a clean towel. Spot clean with warm, distilled water and a mild detergent such as Dawn dish soap, which will pull any grease out of the stain. Bleach solutions are not recommended as they may affect the water-resistant treatment. Do not machine wash, steam clean, iron, or remove covers for any reason. 

While the exterior of the frame is powder coated, the inside is raw metal. As such, if condensation or rainwater collects inside the frame, you may see rust-colored water run out when you move your furniture. This rust is not corrosive, but can be prevented by covering your furniture when not in use, especially when expecting rain, snow, or ice.
