Ethnicraft Upholstered Furniture Care Instructions


Upholstered items should not be washed. Taking off the cushion covers and washing these in a machine (even at low temperature) will lighten the color and shrink the fabric.

If pilling should occur, don't be alarmed. It's a result of excess fiber coming of the fabric or from external sources. This is not a defect but a characteristic of many upholstered fabrics.

To keep upholstery in optimal condition we recommend the following:

●  To remove pilling, we recommend using an antipilling machine.

●  Avoid placing item in direct sunlight.

●  For dusting or removing crumbs take a clean cloth or soft brush and wipe down upholstery. Do not rub.

●  We do not recommend vacuuming. If you do so, use the lowest suction and a soft upholstery attachment.

●  Treat spills immediately. Blot up as much of the spill as possible with a clean, dry, white cloth. Do not rub.

●  In case of a stain, use a clean, slightly damp white cloth, blotting from the outer edge to the center of the stain.

●  Do not use any chemical products on your upholstery.

●  If in doubt, always refer to the care label specific to your item.


We advise the following:

●  Dust regularly using a soft dry cloth.

●  For a more thorough cleaning, use mild soap and warm water. Rinse with clean water and wipe dry.

●  Do not use steel wool, sandpaper, mineral acid, bleach or chlorine cleaners on metal surfaces.

●  Do not drag the furniture along the floor, as it might damage the protective coating, cause rusting or leave permanent marks on the floor.

●  Always lift the furniture when moving them from place to place.

●  This product is intended for indoor use only.

●  Recommended humidity in the room: between 40% and 60%.

●  Ideal room temperature: 21°C during the day, not below 14°C at night.

●  To prevent color differences: do not place your furniture in direct sunlight.

●  Avoid exposure to extreme conditions: do not place furniture near heating sources or air-conditioners.

●  To prevent staining, we recommend that any spills be removed immediately.

●  Use placemats and/or coasters to prevent hot pots and pans, or cold glasses and bottles, from leaving marks on the furniture.

●  Do not drag the furniture along the floor, always lift the furniture when moving.

●  Always ensure water and solutions used to clean the floor do not come in contact with the furniture's base, as it might leave permanent marks.
