How Do I Clean a Fabric Office Chair?
Using a vacuum’s hose and the brush attachment, begin by vacuuming the whole chair to remove any loose debris for both regular cleaning and deep stain treatments. To see if there are any limitations to the kind of cleaner you can use, be sure to read the manufacturer’s instructions on the chair. With some upholstery, for example, water-based cleaners need to be avoided. In both in liquid and powder forms, dry cleaner products are available and can be used. On a dry cloth, put a small amount of the cleaner and apply it directly to the chair. To lift any stains out, firmly but gently rub the spot clean. Use a damp, not wet, cloth to remove any residues to avoid potential damage. You have a few options if the water-based cleaners are agreeable to the chair’s material. Use a foaming upholstery cleaner and apply it to the whole chair and allow to do its work for a few minutes. Scour out any stains using a firm cleaning brush. Vacuum it again with the brush attachment to remove residue after the surface is dry. An alternative water-based cleaning method can include combining dish soap and water. Just add a few drops of mild dish soap in warm water, dampen the cloth in the mixture and wipe the chair’s surface clean. With a water-damp cloth, rinse away the soapy residues with another thorough wipe down.

Dip a clean cloth and blot after mixing together a small amount of dish soap and warm water. Wipe out stains and once you are done, let the mesh chair air dry.
