Now that you finally have your very own Lazyboy recliner at home, it is very important that you know how to properly clean and take care of it. Cleaning your recliner is very important if you want to maintain its look and if you want it to last a very long time. Whether you bought a recliner that is made of leather, suede, cloth or any material, it is important that you learn how to clean it yourself to save some.
The good thing is that Lazyboy recliners are quite easy to take care and maintain. If you get yourself some Lazyboy recliner slipcovers, it becomes even easier – just remove the slipcover and stash it into the washing machine (which is why slipcovers are a must). But how do you properly clean and maintain your Lazyboy recliner? Here are some tips that can help you:
1. Cleaning the cover made of cloth or suede
You can get rid of loose dirt or dust on your recliner using a brush or a vacuum cleaner (with a brush attachment). You can use some mild detergent, but be careful not to use one that has bleach or whiteners. You can mix one fourth of a cup of detergent and warm water then stir with a hand blender to create soap suds. It is the suds that you will use to clean your recliner, using a sponge to lightly scrub off dirt. Make sure to tap dry and to let it dry overnight
2. Cleaning leather upholstery
When cleaning leather, use a cleaning solution made from mild facial soap with warm water. With a soft rag, gently rub the cover, paying extra attention to the arm and head rest, where most dirt accumulates. Rinse lightly with water and pat dry with a towel. Make sure to use distilled water to prevent discolorations.
3. Vacuum the crevices
Dust would often accumulate in the crevices of your Lazyboy recliner. Make sure that you dust it away with a vacuum from time to time.
4. When there are spills
Spills are inevitable especially if you allow kids in your recliner, or if you drink and eat while sitting on it. When spills happen, immediately wipe it clean using a dabbing motion – NEVER rub. Also, do not let the liquids dry up or they may be very hard to clean afterwards. Afterwards, you can use leather cleaner or some soap water solution to remove residue that has been left behind.
5. When there are ink marks
Ink can be very difficult to remove. Do not give in to the temptation of using strong household cleansers to rub it away. There are some special cleaning solutions available that have been made to remove ink on leather or cloth surfaces. You can get a hold of these and apply it as quickly as possible.
It is also a good idea to ask your Lazyboy recliner dealer for tips in cleaning your recliner chair. They can even tell you about special conditioners which can protect your recliner to make it last even longer. Make sure that you take time every month to clean your Lazyboy recliner.
