How do we clean our velvet cushions?
Our velour style lambskin needs regular attention and care. You will need some items at home for the care of the cushions. We highly recommend a soft suede brush for regular brush-off dust. If you get a spot on your cushion, a muslin cloth is the best if you have to wipe off with water. Temperature of the water must not be more 30C. preferably less. Use very mild liquid soap. The softness of the muslin cloth is gentle on the cushion materials.
Vacuuming regularly is another way to keep the cushions clean from dust. But use a gentle power and a plain suction, turbo could destroy the texture of the velour lambskin!
