Do you have a recliner that has been collecting dirt and dust? It is time to clean your hugger recliner! In this blog post, we will discuss how to get the job done.
This guide covers how to spot dirty areas of your chair, how to remove the cover on your seat, how to wash it, and how to put everything back together again.
Steps on Cleaning Hugger Recliner
Step 1. Spot Dirt and Dust: Look for dirt or dust on your seat, arms, back of the chair. This can be done by using a vacuum cleaner to suck up any loose debris you see in these areas.
Step 2. Remove Cover: If there is an armrest, lift it off and set it aside so that you are only dealing with the seat portion of your chair. If you are not able to lift it off, use a screwdriver or butter knife to pop the armrest free and set it aside.
Step 3. Remove Seat Cushion: To remove the cushion from your hugger recliner, unzip any zippers that might be on either side of this cushion. Pull the cover off of it, and set it aside so that you are left with just the seat frame and bottom portion intact.
Step 4. Remove Arms: If there is a piece on either side of your chair to allow for armrests, remove them by first loosening any bolts or screws near these pieces if they do not come free . Once they are loose, slide them off the frame and set them aside.
Step 5. Clean Frame: Use a water-based soap or detergent on an old sponge to scrub your hugger recliner’s seat frame. You may need to use some elbow grease in order to get it how you want it (no pun intended).
Step 6. Wipe Down: Wipe the entire seat frame down with an old rag, and then use a dry one to get it how you want it.
Step 7. Zip It Up: Once everything is clean, reassemble your hugger recliner by first placing the cover back onto the cushion . Then put both armrests back on if they were removed.
Step 8. Reattach Backs: Next, lay the back of your chair over and gently place it on top of where the seat should be . Use small screws to attach each side in order to keep everything together.
How to Vacuum a Hugger Recliner
I’m assuming that you know how to use a vacuum cleaner, so I’ll just skip the how-to and get right into instructions for how to vacuum your hugger recliner.
It’s important to clean your chair regularly in order to keep dust mites out of it which can cause allergies and other health problems. A lot of how often you need to clean your chair will depend on how many people live in the household and how big particles are end up inside.
Vacuum Regularly: It’s best to vacuum your hugger recliner at least once a month, but if most of what falls into it are larger than dust mites then you ‘ll need to vacuum it more often.
Clean the Outside: You should also clean off any dust or dirt that has collected on the outside of your recliner with a damp cloth. This will keep any particles from getting inside and causing allergies etcetera.
Clean Inside Seams: The inside seams are hard to reach, but you should take a damp cloth and wipe around the inside seams to loosen any dust or dirt that has collected there.
Damp Cloth: A good way to clean your hugger recliner is with a damp cloth, so use this if you don’t have any other supplies on hand. If you do want something more heavy-duty, you can use an upholstery cleaner. You should start with the most stained areas and work your way to less dirty parts of the chair.
Spray Fabric Cleaner: In order to clean any fabric or material, you’ll need a fabric cleaner like Febreze or Woolite so make sure that you have one on hand if not.
Woolite: If you don’t have a fabric cleaner, just mix one tablespoon of Woolite with two cups of lukewarm water and use this as your cleaning solution. You should also make sure that the cleanings are done often to keep dirt from accumulating on the fabrics over time
Febreze Fabric Refresher Spray: You should also make sure that you have a fabric refresher spray like Febreze Fabric Refresher Spray on hand to keep fabrics smelling fresh.
