First of all, What Is Crushed Velvet?

Crushed Velvet is a velvet fabric that is flat but gives the impression that it is creased. The fabric is popularly used on furniture such as sofas, beds, chairs, cushions and even clothing!

How To Clean Crushed Velvet Furniture

Accidents happen and spillages or food stains can end up on your new piece of crushed velvet furniture. Don’t panic as with most stains you will be able to clean the fabric to try to restore it to its original appearance. If you have a dry stain, make sure you hoover away any dry soil before applying a wet cloth.

Take a look at two methods of how to clean your crushed velvet furniture.

The Wet Method for Cleaning Velvet Furniture

Liquid spillages happen, if they do you will need to soak up as much of the liquid as possible. You can do this using paper towels or a clean cloth. Try to remove as much of the liquid as possible from the fabric. Once you have done this mix together a small amount of clear washing up liquid or fabric detergent and warm water in a bowl or bucket and mix the water until it becomes sudsy.

Get a clean cloth and soak it in the water, squeeze some of the excess then apply it gently to the stain. Make sure you dab the stain (do not rub!) until the stain disappears. You will then need to dry the velvet as quickly as possible. You can do this by using a hair dryer making sure you hold the hair dryer at least 20cms away from the fabric so that it does not over heat.

The Dry Method for Cleaning Velvet Furniture

Spilt liquids on your furniture will need to be dried immediately. To dry the fabric you can use paper towels or a clean cloth. Once you have done this, apply the dry cleaning detergent to a sponge and dab the sponge on to the stain until the stain is completely covered. Let the dry detergent dry on the fabric, you can speed up this process by using a hair dryer. Keep this more than 20cms away from the velvet fabric. Once the stain is dry, use a hoover to remove the dry detergent from the fabric. You may want to use a soft brush to unmat the velvet if it appears matted.

We always recommend hiring a professional upholstery cleaner to clean any furniture. Remember to try to remove as much of the excess liquid with a clean cloth or paper towels as soon as the spillage occurs.
