How to Clean Steamer Cushions Effectively

Amy Field

Summer is the perfect time to relax outdoors, and your steamer cushions can make your lounging experience extra comfortable. However, they can quickly become dirty with regular use. Keeping them clean not only enhances your outdoor space’s aesthetic but also extends the cushions’ lifespan. Here’s a general guide from Field & Hawken on how to clean steamer cushions effectively.

Step 1: Remove Foam Cushions from Their Covers
Begin by unzipping the cushion covers and carefully removing the foam inserts. This step is essential to ensure that both the covers and the foam are cleaned properly without causing any damage. Lay the foam inserts in a dry, clean area while you wash the covers.

Step 2: Wash the Covers
Place the covers into your washing machine. Select a standard wash cycle at 30ºC (86ºF). Avoid using hot water, as it can shrink or damage the fabric. For the best results, use a mild detergent that is suitable for delicate fabrics. If your covers have any stubborn stains, pre-treat them with a stain remover before washing.
Step 3: Partially Dry the Covers Naturally
After washing, take the covers out of the machine and gently shake them to remove excess water. Lay them flat or hang them up to dry naturally. Avoid using a dryer, as the heat can shrink or weaken the fabric. It’s best to let the covers dry until they are just slightly damp, as this makes it easier to put the foam inserts back in.
Step 4: Reinsert the Foam Cushions
Once the covers are partially dry, carefully reinsert the foam cushions. Doing this while the covers are still slightly damp can make the process smoother and help the covers regain their shape. Zip up the covers and ensure that the foam is evenly distributed.

By following these simple steps, you can keep your steamer cushions looking fresh and extend their lifespan. Enjoy your clean and comfortable outdoor space all summer long!
