After going through the process of cleaning your cushions, you’ll want to make sure to protect them from getting stained again. The best way to protect your couch cushions is by using a fabric guard.
Fabric guards, Sometime’s it isn’t the fabric that is causing your couch to look older, it may actually be the cushions themselves.
Remove the cushion from the cover and make sure it’s still in good condition. You’ll want the batting to cover three sides of your cushion: top, front, and bottom.
Trace your cushion around the batting so it fits correctly.
Once you’ve measured correctly, place adhesive spray between the layer of batting and your cushion to help the two from sliding around when placed within the cushion cover.
Let the adhesive dry, put the cover back on the cushion, and you’ve got yourself a plump cushion again.
If your cushion isn’t heavily damaged, a short-time fix of flipping cushions can work.
If your fabric can be machine washed, unzip the cover and remove it from the cushion.
Wash it in cold water on gentle cycle with mild detergent.
If you do own pets, consider purchasing a product designed to help remove pet hair, as pet hair and dander can be hard to remove with vacuuming alone.
Trust me, as an owner of a golden retriever, I know that dog hair doesn’t always clean up easily.
