clean office chairs

Italian chairs, especially office chairs, are used at a daily basis by people who spend many hours sitting on these comfortable supports. But, how can we remove all traces of dirt from these practical pieces of furniture without damaging them? Cleaning Italian office chairs seems like one of the many quick and easy tasks to perform, but instead it is more complicated and difficult than you can imagine! Let's see together how to clean leather or fabric Italian office chairs.


In order to remove stains, dust, food residue, ink from your Italian office chair you must follow certain directions, otherwise you can ruin the fabric or rust one of the Italian chair's components. For superficial and non-intensive cleaning, if your Italian office chair is made of fabric, you can wipe the entire surface with a damp cloth and let it dry for a few minutes. This way you will have removed most of the dust and surface dirt. After cleaning the chair of dust, if there are still crumbs or evident traces of dirt, it is always a good idea to vacuum them up with a brush with soft bristles that will not ruin or scratch the fabric. If the office chair still looks dirty or has stains on it, you can check the label and see if it can be unlined and machine washed, otherwise you should remove the stains by some other means. If the chair's fabric is washable, I recommend that you carefully read the washing directions on the label so as not to risk ruining the integrity or color of the fabric. To remove stubborn stains, if it is not possible to unlined the Italian office chair, you can use natural detergents diluted with water: apply a few drops of detergent to a damp cloth, rub the area where the stain is present, leave for a few seconds and then rinse thoroughly. For ink or coffee stains instead of the classic detergent you can use a few drops of alcohol or white wine vinegar, a natural remedy that ensures excellent results and does not ruin the fabric. If the Italian office chair has metal or other material components, it is always a good idea to avoid using overly aggressive cleaners, but to use only warm water and white wine vinegar, applied on a small cotton ball.


Cleaning Italian office chairs in leather is definitely more complicated than treating other fabrics, as leather cannot be machine washed and tends to be ruined if certain cleaners or solvents are used. To begin cleaning your leather Italian office chair, vacuum the back and seat to remove accumulations of crumbs, dust, etc., and then with a damp cloth you can remove surface dirt from the armrests, casters, and other metal parts. If there are stains or stubborn dirt on the metal or plastic parts, you should prepare a solution of white wine vinegar or denatured alcohol and warm running water. As with the fabric chair, dip the microfiber cloth into the vinegar and water solution and wipe off any metal or plastic components of the Italian office chair. The vinegar and water solution can also be used on the leather backrest, but be careful not to get it too wet, otherwise the interior upholstery will get soaked and you will have to wait several days for it to dry completely. The leather upholstery of the Italian office chair will not be ruined if you use only dish detergent to remove particularly stubborn stains. It is always a good idea to dilute dish detergent in water and apply a small amount on the stain with the help of a sponge; leave it on or rub it in for a few seconds and then rinse. If the leather chair has wadding or cotton upholstery, you must necessarily use dry cleaning to thoroughly clean the seat.


Italian office chairs made of fabric or leather are particularly delicate and difficult to clean. Instead, those made of plastic or metal are very easy to wash and chemical cleaners or sanitizers can also be used. Routine cleaning of Italian office chairs made of plastic or other materials consists of washing with a damp cloth the parts where dust and dirt usually accumulate: backrest, seat, armrests. For deeper and more thorough cleaning, you can instead use a detergent diluted in lukewarm water to wipe over each component of the chair with a sponge and then proceed to rinse thoroughly. If your Italian office chairs have not been washed in a while, you can use denatured alcohol to sanitize the parts in contact with the skin by wiping all surfaces with a cotton ball. It is always a good idea to wipe the casters of the Italian office chair with a damp cloth, otherwise dirt will settle on the floor and be more difficult to clean.
