Now that, if you purchased the velvet furniture, you have to know about the cons, clean & maintenance, to keep the velvet furniture been using for longer time.


  1. Inadvertently stacking velvet clothing can easily damage the natural direction of the velvet, making it difficult to recover and prone to static electricity.
  2. Due to the characteristics of velvet itself, the surface is composed of densely packed small fluff. During the production and processing of the fabric, some small fluff particles will remain on the clothes, which is inevitable. Generally, it will be flushed out in the first few washes, especially in dark-colored clothes such as black, sapphire blue, and carbon gray, and other darker colors.

Except for the pros and cons of the velvet furniture, what else will you concern more? One answer may be the washing tips. If you have bought the velvet furniture, we recommend you some cleaning tips here.

The cleaning tips:

  1. One of the disadvantages of velvet is that it tends to attract dust, dirt and debris, which often accumulates in seams and between the cushions of a chair or sofa. For this reason, you may notice that your velvet furniture gets stained more easily than other types of furniture.

Fortunately, using the upholstery attachment on a handheld vacuum or a full-size vacuum can solve this problem. In one word, if you can't get all the dust and other debris off the fabric, first use a clean, soft-bristled brush to loosen it, then vacuum it away.

Vacuuming your velvet furniture regularly should keep it looking its best But if you're dealing with a spill or stain, you'll need to take more steps.

  1. The trick to cleaning stains from velvet is to wipe it gently with a clean, dry absorbent cloth as soon as possible and then let it air dry. If it leaves a stain—or you see old stains on your furniture—there are more steps to take.

Mix one of the two cleaning solutions

Baking soda + lemon juice: Place 2 teaspoons of baking soda in a small dish and add the lemon juice until it starts to bubble.

Dish soap + water: Fill a bucket or container with warm water and add a drop or two of mild dish soap. Shake it around a bit until it bubbles.

Then, make a small test patch on an inconspicuous part of the velvet furniture to make sure the solution you choose won't damage the fabric.

If you're happy with the results, soak a clean, soft, dry cloth in the foam or soapy water and use it to blot (not wipe) the stain until it's gone. Once it's dry, check the area to make sure the stain is gone and to see if the velvet is now tangled. If it is, use a clean, dry, soft-bristled brush to loosen it.
