How to care for your nursery chair

Your nursery chair is an investment in your comfort. It’s a piece of furniture that you’ll use every day, multiple times a day. And when you’re no longer nursing, it can transition into an armchair in any room of your home for you to enjoy for many years to come.  

 Knowing how to care for your nursery chair will ensure that you get as much longevity as possible out of your investment. We share our tips for how to both protect your fabric after your purchase and how to maintain and clean your iL Tutto Nursery Chair fabric. Let's dive into our helpful tips!

Preventative care

The best thing you can do for nursery chair care is to take preventative measures that will help it to stay in good condition for longer. 

At iL Tutto, we only use premium fabrics with stain resistant qualities so you’re already a step ahead.  

Preventative measures you can take:

  • Using the Fabric Protection Shield that’s included in our Care Cover Fabric Care Kit will give your nursery chair an added layer of stain protection.  
  • Place your chair away from direct sunlight and heat to prevent fading and warping.
  • Regularly vacuum chair to remove dust and minimise pilling.  

Pilling is natural with many fabrics but these preventive steps – and proper fabric care – can help to minimise it. If pilling does occur, you can use a de-pilling machine, which will gently shave the pills from the fabric. 

Dealing with spills and stains

If you spill something on your nursery chair, it’s best to clean it as soon as possible so the stain doesn’t set in to the fabric.  Our Care Cover Fabric Care Kit includes everything you need to treat unwanted stains. 

  • 1

    Spray the Fabric Upholstery Cleaning Fluid included in the kit directly onto the spray until it’s completely covered.

  • 2

    Wet the included microfibre cloth and then use a dabbing motion on the stain. For large or stubborn stains, you may need to repeat the process of spraying and dabbing. 

  • 3

    Once clean, wipe the stain gently and allow it to dry. The microfibre cloth can then be rinsed with clean water to use over and over again.

Reflux stains

For reflux stains that leave a smell in your chair, sprinkle with bicarb soda and leave overnight. When dry, you can vacuum up the bicarb soda… and the smell with it.  

A few rules to remember

When cleaning a fabric chair, there are a few rules to keep in mind:

  • Don’t use bleach or other harsh chemicals
  • Don’t rub over the stain but use a dabbing motion to blot the stain.  
  • Don’t machine wash the fabric.  
  • Don’t use an excessive amount of water on the fabric and allow it to dry naturally between spot cleans.
