Clean Your Recliner, Fabric, Leather

Cleaning and Care

Positive Posture® currently carries two different types of coverings for our True Zero Gravity® power recliners: fabric and leather. Both require a different level of maintenance and care so please follow the instructions for your specific material below in order to keep your chair in great condition for years to come.

Leather: Café, Sora, Luma, Luma Designer, Duke

When properly cared for, your leather chair will maintain its beauty for many years to come. To care for you chair, please be sure to vacuum and dust it often using a soft, clean cloth. Never leave newspapers on any upholstered furniture. While leather is much stronger than fabric, it can still be scarred and punctured. Thus, please take extra care with sharp instruments and animal claws. Finally, if your chair is a lighter color, it may require more maintenance than darker colors.

If you do have a spill on your leather chair, use a soft, absorbent cloth and attend to it quickly. Make sure to use a blotting technique on the stain rather than rubbing. For general cleaning and deeper cleaning, use a solution of half mild soap and half distilled water on a slightly dampened cloth or sponge. As you gently clean the leather with this formulation, you should work up a foam. AVOID EXCESSIVE RUBBING. When you are done, blot any remaining soap residue with a clean cloth dampened with only distilled water. Grab another soft, clean cloth and blot until dry.

Fabric: Luma, Sora

Unlike some of our other materials, the fabric is porous and more easily damaged. We spend a lot of time treating your recliner with soil and water repellents before it reaches your home. However, if you are concerned about protecting your chair, we recommend adding a fabric protection product either at home or through an authorized dealer.

Regular maintenance of your fabric chair includes vacuuming weekly and using a soft brush to gently whisk dirt away. Always make sure your brush is soft to avoid snagging and pulling on the fabric.

Fabric upholstery requires immediate attention to spills and stains of any nature. Always clean up any spills or stains as soon as they happen to avoid absorption into the upholstery fibers.

If you have a stain that was caused by a product such as ink, cosmetics, shoe polish, oil or grease: dampen the stain with warm water and rub gently with a neutral soap. Rinse thoroughly and wait for the area to dry. Once dry, simply brush the fabric with a soft-bristled brush.

If you have a stain that was caused by liqueurs, wine, soda, tea, or milk: use a dry, clean cloth to remove anything that has not been absorbed. Dampen the stain with warm water and rub gently with a neutral soap. Rinse thoroughly and allow to dry. Once the area is completely dry, brush the fabric with a soft bristled brush.
