How often do you clean your Dutailier glider cushions? I would hazard a guess that many people don’t even think about it! This is why the upholstery on your furniture can get pretty dirty. The best way to keep your furniture looking nice and new is by making sure you take care of the things in between all of those deep-cleaning sessions: vacuuming.
In this blog post, I will be talking about how to clean Dutailier glider cushions, so they look their best for as long as possible!
What you will need:
1. Vacuum cleaner
2. Vacuum attachment (available for purchase from most hardware stores)
3. Dutailier glider cushions.

The Dutailier glider cushions vacuuming process
Clearing off all of the furniture in the room is a good way to start – we want it nice and clean before we work on our piece! Once all furniture is moved out of the way, take off any cushioning covering your sofa or chair with care, so you don’t rip anything. If there are pillows or blankets draped over your couch, move them aside as well.
Now comes the fun part: vacuuming! Take an upholstery attachment and place it securely onto your vacuum hose. Turn on the vacuum cleaner and adjust its settings so that they are in the highest and most powerful setting. Move all around your piece of furniture, making sure you get in every nook and cranny to remove any loose dust or dirt that may be hiding!
After vacuuming is complete, go over the whole surface with a dry cloth – this will help pick up anything left behind by the vacuum cleaner. You can also shake out cushions outside if they are not too large to do so at this stage. Place them back onto your sofa or chair in their original positions, as they should have been before we started cleaning!
Now it’s time for another round of vacuuming: repeat what was done previously but without using water from above (we don’t want our couch wet!). Make sure every crevice is vacuumed and that there’s no dust left behind.
Finally, use a damp cloth or towel (or if you don’t have one handy – warm water) to wipe down the entire surface of your piece of furniture. Remember: go from top to bottom so that any dirt wiped against it will run downwards! And make sure not to leave any wet patches on the fabric as this could lead to mold growth over time in some cases. Now we’re done vacuuming your Dutailier glider cushions!

To remove a stain from your nursery glider and ottoman, simply wet the cloth or rag with foamy upholstery cleaner and rub it all over the stain. You can wear latex gloves to keep your hands clean and dry.
Make sure to blot outward so that you rinse some of the dirty area with cleaner along with any dirt in that spot on your glider cushions.
Reapply some upholstery cleaner if needed and repeat the previous process until you’re satisfied there is no stain left.
Once you are satisfied, wash off any extra residue by rinsing with clear water and hang up to dry!
N.B: DO NOT USE bleach to clean your Dutailier furniture and cushions–it will damage the fabric.
