Bean bag loungers are great, right? After a hard day, they’re like enormous, squishy embraces. However, we must take care of them. You wouldn’t let your beloved jeans collect dust, would you?
Let’s start with the basics. It’s easier if your bean bag lounger has a removable cover. But those small beans might be hard to manage, so grab a big bag or two and let your lounger pour its heart out into them. It’s like moving marbles.
Now that you’ve cleared your cover, it’s time to investigate. Have spots? It’s not a water gunfight, so use a little detergent. Put it in the washing machine inside out after carefully brushing it. The cover will benefit. Use cold water and a gentle cycle to wash grandma’s precious china.
Now drying. Those exquisite china dishes? Treat the cover similarly. No heat, just air drying. After it’s dry, play reverse marbles and put the beans back in.
Non-washable cover owners, I hear you. The strategy: Dish soap, hot water, and a rag. To remove soap, dab gently and rinse with a clean, moist towel. Your lounger cover isn’t a scouring brush, so be careful.
Those with leather or imitation leather bean bag loungers have it easy. Regularly clean them with a dry, soft cloth and a moist cloth with mild soap for unexpected spills. After washing, wipe it off with a moist towel and dry it with a soft cloth.
Think of your lounger as a giant, squishy puppy, fake fur pals. Dust the fur with a gentle brush and wipe up wet spills with a dry towel. Call a pro to bathe your faux fur friend.
When in doubt, consult the labeling or manufacturer’s instructions. They’re your treasure map and will help you clean securely. I know cleaning is a pain, but a clean bean bag lounger is worth it. Go read or watch a movie on your clean lounger!
We all love that comfy bean bag lounger, don’t we? That plushy joy in the corner of the room provides unmatched comfort for movie marathons or late-night discussions with pals. Do you know what it hates? It’s filthy! Like an unexpected party guest who won’t leave.
First, let’s explore what makes our beloved bean bag loungers lose their attractiveness. You may wonder, “How on earth does this cozy paradise get dirty?” Friend, life happens. You, your kids, your pets, and your careless pals all contribute.
Imagine popping corn for your favorite movie night and spilling it all over the bean bag lounger. Food spills are number one. These may discolor fabric and attract insects, making your next meal less than enjoyable. Then there are dust mites and allergies, the tiny squatters who like your bean bag lounger as much as you do. If you’re sneezing just thinking about it, envision your lounger. These can build up over time, making the cloth seem drab and giving you a cold every time you sit down.
Have children? You’ve got culprit number three. That lounger is loved by your cute kids, also. However, they’re budding Picassos who love to draw on everything. They’ve stained your sofa with crayons, markers, and paint. Not just the tiny ones. After a muddy trek, have you thought, “I’ll just take a quick rest on my lounger?” Guilty as charged! Your bean bag lounger takes the brunt of your hiking boots’ adventures.
Whiskers or Fido? Pets love your bean bag lounger as much as you do. They’re responsible for your bean bag lounger’s declining appearance due to shedding, “accidents,” and poor cleaning practices. This awful tale involves our bodies too. As incredible as it sounds, our bodies lose skin cells and create oils that rub off onto the lounger fabric with continuous use. These can accumulate, making the surface look dirty.
Did we forget the drink spills? Your bean bag lounger may not enjoy a game night toast with a glass of wine or a cold beer. Fabric stains and smells can result from liquid spills. Do you like sunny days? Unfortunately, you can’t take your lounger outside. The sun’s UV rays don’t help. Long-term exposure can degrade colors, making your lounger seem worn out. It’s not just the outside. Your lounger’s beans might break down and crumble with time, making the surface uneven and less comfortable and giving it an aged, worn-out look.
The air surrounding us adds to the steady plunge into filth. Airborne particles like dust, pollen, and smoke can land on your lounger and lodge into the fabric. But wait, there’s hope! With regular maintenance and a little cleaning know-how, you can tackle these offenders. Remember, knowledge is power. Now that you know what makes your bean bag lounger dirty, you can clean it. Go out, conquer, and may your bean bag lounger always be a clean, cozy refuge!Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
