To achieve the perfect level of cleanliness, it is best to wash your cushions on warm days with no wind. The reason? Our cushions are designed to absorb sunlight and warm conditions help to keep the fibres strong.

Prior to washing your cushions, gently brush off all dirt and dust from the covers and gently rinse them in lukewarm water. If your cushions have stains, create a mixture with mild soap and lukewarm water and using a sponge or cloth. Then, gently apply the mixture to the cushion, giving it time to soak all the way into the fabric. For deep or large stains apply a small amount of mild, preferably Eco-friendly washing detergent to the solution.

Once the solution has thoroughly soaked into the fabric, rinse the cushion in warm water. Repeat the process until the stains have been removed from the fabric.

Once the stains have been removed and the cushions have been thoroughly rinsed, hang your cushions out to dry. Air drying achieves the best results as it allows the cushions to dry naturally in the sunlight. Never, under any circumstance, put your cushions in a machine drier as the heat from the drier will damage the cushion and burn the fabric. If your cushions have removable covers, you can put them in the washing machine to be cleaned.
