Cleaning & Care

Caring for your Ambient Lounge bean bag furniture keeps it looking new and lasting longer.


Cleaning your Interior Sofa Weave Bean Bags: 

General Maintenance
Lightly vacuum once or twice a week.
If desired, apply Febreze Fabric Refresher (available from supermarkets) to freshen up the fabric cover. 

Minor Stains
Simply spot clean with a damp non-abrasive cloth.

Serious Stains

First, unfill your bean bag using our patented Funnelweb™ system (see graphic above). With the safety locking zip (beneath your sofa), slide in the paper clip under the zip lock. Lift, and voila! You can now unzip with ease. Connect the white Funnelweb™ bag to your bean bag's internal gusset. Simply tip the bean bag to unfill the beans into the Funnelweb™ bag. Done in seconds and no more spilling the beans! Undo zips carefully and separate the cover from the bean-filled Funnelweb™. Zip up the bean-filled Funnelweb™ and set it aside. 

At the bean bag cover, zip up the white internal gusset. (There might be some residual beans within, but this is fine as these beans will dry by themselves after washing). Gently tuck this closed gusset inside the bean bag cover. Now slide a paper clip under the outermost safety locking zip and close this zipper so your bean bag cover is now fully closed.

You can now clean your bean bag cover. For best results, dry clean / hand wash / cold gentle machine wash. (For cold gentle machine wash, to better care for your fabric, place the bean bag cover inside a laundry bag.) Line dry only. DO NOT tumble dry.

After cleaning, simply reverse the Funnelweb™ procedure to refill your bean bag... in seconds!

This worldwide patented Funnelweb™ cleaning system makes your life easy. You’ll thank us for that, we promise.


Cleaning & Caring for your PU Leather Bean Bags: 
Keep your PU leather bean bags in the shade away from sunlight and heat. Avoid sharp objects and pets, as they could cut, tear or scratch the PU leather. Avoid contact with chlorine (eg. wet swimmers and towels after a dip in the pool). Chlorine stains are permanent and will change the colour of the PU leather.

General Maintenance
Dust with a clean dry duster. When dust settles, it can become abrasive and cause damage to the cover.

Stains
Blot food and drink spills immediately with a white, clean and dry non-abrasive cloth. DO NOT rub. Avoid allowing these spills to dry. Use only care products recommended for PU leather.

Note: You do not need to unfill your PU leather bean bag. DO NOT dry clean, machine wash or immerse your PU leather bean bag in water.


Cleaning & Caring for your Waterproof Bean Bags: 
Properly maintain your Ambient Lounge waterproof bean bags to keep them looking good and to delay deep or vigorous cleanings. You can greatly prolong their lifespan with regular cleaning and light maintenance. Brush off dirt before it becomes embedded in the fabrics. Wipe up spills as soon as they occur or spot clean soon after stains occur. The better you treat them, the longer they will last.

General Maintenance
Brush off any loose dirt. Wipe clean with a damp non-abrasive cloth. Wipe dry with a towel. 

Minor Stains
Wipe clean with a non-abrasive cloth using warm water and mild detergent OR use a soft bristle toothbrush and warm water with mild detergent and brush with a circular motion. Wipe dry with a towel.

Stubborn Stains
You need:
- a specialty cleaner such as Scotchgard Fabric & Upholstery Cleaner (available from supermarkets and DIY shops)
- a soft colourfast cleaning sponge such as Mr Clean Magic Eraser or equivalent (available from supermarkets and DAISO)
Follow the instructions on the fabric cleaner. After cleaning, allow your waterproof bean bag to air dry. 

Serious Stains / Mildew
Ambient Lounge waterproof nylon fabrics do not promote mildew growth. However, mildew may grow on dirt and other foreign substances that are not removed from the fabric.
You need:
- a specialty cleaner made for cleaning vehicle fabrics (cleaners for the soft tops of convertibles will clean nylon and are available from automotive care stores)
Follow the instructions on the specialty cleaner. After cleaning, allow your waterproof bean bag to air dry.

Note: You do not need to unfill your waterproof bean bag. DO NOT dry clean, machine wash or immerse your waterproof bean bag in water. 


CARING FOR YOUR AMBIENT LOUNGE BEAN BAGS 

  • Keep them on a smooth surface such as floorboards and carpets. Do not place your bean bags on rough surfaces such as concrete.
  • Bean bags are not toys. Use them only as furniture. Do not abuse or jump on your bean bags.
  • Sharp objects could damage the fabric. Avoid sitting in your bean bag while wearing clothing/accessories with sharp edges.
  • Keep your waterproof bean bags clean and free of debris (such as falling leaves). 
  • Brush dirt off your waterproof bean bag before it becomes embedded in the fabric.
  • Wipe up spills on your waterproof bean bag as soon as they occur.
  • Spot clean soon after stains occur.
  • After heavy or prolonged rain, allow your waterproof bean bag to air dry.
  • Bring your waterproof bean bag indoors if it is going to be unused for an extended period of time.
