How to Care for White Furniture
Regular maintenance is the key to keeping your white furniture looking white. While it's certainly not the easiest upholstery color to own, the proper care can make all the difference. Here are a few tips on how to keep your new white accent chair looking its best:
First things first, you'll want to read the care label tag to learn the correct cleaning method for that upholstery fabric. While some removable covers can be tossed in your washing machine, others require professional dry cleaning.
Blot stains immediately to prevent them from spreading. Depending on the fabric, you may need to stick with a dry cloth.
Keep your furniture out of direct sunlight to protect it from fading and discoloration caused by sun damage.
For high traffic areas, stick to durable, stain-resistant fabrics that are easy to care for. If you've got pets or kids, you may want to avoid the color altogether— or at least pure white options in favor of dark cream hues that hide dirt.
