how to wash and care for you bean bag.
Ambient Lounge bean bags are "real furniture" and much easier to care for and clean than traditional sofas because of the removability of the covers and the fact that the interior fabrics can be hand or cold machine washed.
A traditional sofa cover is almost always impossible to remove to clean, therefore spot cleaning is required. This is not the case with our beautiful bean bags.
Some old style bean bags (blobs) that do not have any shapes contain an inner liner. However, whilst easy to remove, this is quite restrictive inside the bean bag and not comfortable for the user simply because the bean bag beads cannot go to every corner of the bean bag. For Sofa shapes and other more modern designs like sofas or chairs, it’s very difficult to have this inner liner design for that very reason. The invention of the patented Funnelweb® Bean Bag system has allowed for this functional problem to be overcome. Invented by Ambient Lounge, the Funnelweb® is a zip system that allows for quick and easy decanting of beads. You can see how the revolutionary Funnelweb® bean bag system works here. A Bean bag cover should be removed if in materials such as Cotton fabrics, Sofa Chenile, Heavy Polyester fabrics, Canvas Fabrics, Cotton Canvas, Denim Fabrics, Herringbone and can normally be cold machine washed or gently hand washed. You may remove the beans either by decanting or via an inner liner and wash cover separately. If the bean bag is made from Vinyl, leather or Faux leather, you should not remove but simply wipe clean with a damp sponge or lightly scrub. Taking care of your bean bag chair not only keeps it looking new, but also extends the life of your chair. Use warm water and a mild detergent on a cloth to remove general dirty areas of the bean bag chair. Liquid dish soap or a surface spray cleaner is an example of a mild detergent. Do not use abrasive cleaners because they may scratch the fabric. Some household cleaners and solvents remove plasticizers, which may cause the vinyl to become brittle. Use a (soft bristle) toothbrush for stubborn marks. Use a clean cloth to wipe the fabric dry. Never immerse the bean bag chair in water. Cleaning Nylon Bean Bags that includes: Indoor / Outdoor bean bag popular brands such as Outdura, Elements or Sunbrella Nylon requires a similar process. For these outdoor fabric use a soft bristle brush and water with a mild detergent to remove general dirty areas of the chair. Apply to the area and brush with a circular motion and wipe clean with a dry cloth. If such mild detergents are not potent enough for stubborn marks, try using specialty cleaners made for cleaning vehicle fabrics. Convertible top cleaner will clean nylon and can be found at automotive care stores. Do not immerse in water. There may also be some beanbags made in fabrics like Microsuede, Microfibre, Faux Suede & Passion Suede. Do not dry clean this fabric unless the care label states that you can do it. You may remove the cover but it’s better and safer to use water and a mild detergent on a cloth to remove general dirty areas of the chair. Liquid dish soap is an example of a mild detergent. A spot fabric cleaner can also be used. Gently scrub area and wipe clean with a dry cloth. Again, do not immerse in water. For bean bags such as the Ambient Lounge® Roma Sofa with an easily removable cover, the covers are machine washable on a very gentle setting in cold water.
Other helpful hints on how to take care of your bean bag furniture:
1. Keep them on a smooth surface such as floorboards and carpet. Do not place bean bags on rough surfaces such as concrete.
2. Keep your dogs and cats away from them (though many of your pets may love the comfortof the beads). Some animals may puncture lesser quality bean bag fabrics. It’s advisable to give your pet its own bean bag bed.
3. Whilst many high quality bean bags have strong stitching, the cheaper ones will not. Therefore do not jump on bean bag chairs as the seams can burst.
4. Try to avoid sitting in the chair while wearing clothing/accessories with sharp metal edges. Again with lesser quality fabrics they can catch, split and burst.
5. Buy bean bags with safety locking zips only. Beads are very dangerous if eaten and safety zips serve to keep them safe for small children or your younger kids. It is law in Australia and USA to sell bean bags only with Safety locking zips.
Filling a Butterfly Sofa is recommended with 420-450 litres of high quality beads (depending on personal comfort levels).
Rec. Filling Instructions: First note that there are two filling copartment for the Butterfly Sofa Design, on for the back and one for the base (seating area). It's recommended the back compartment is filled nice & tight and the seating area is a little more loosely filled for best comfort & style. Always use Ambient Lounge safety locking zip tool or paper clip to open the child proof safety zips on the bean bag cover.
Step 1. Open back compartment & attach 300 litres Funnelweb bag securely to back compartment gusset first. Zip & tip letting gravity do most of the work. Fill back compartment as tightly as possible so that Butterfly Sofa frame is firm and supportive. To ensure that all beads compact inside, as the compartment becomes full - you should shake and 'push' beads so that they are able to get in and behind the elastic supports. Pat down the outer fabric of the bag firmly so that beans can shift freely and move down compartment inside. Once tighly filled (so that can't get any more beans inside) close the inner gusset bag and outer cover zip.
Step 2. Open seating compartment and attach the Funnelweb or smaller 150lt bag of beads. Zip & Tip letting gravity do most of the work. Keeping the funnelweb attached, flip the bean bag and sit on it to test the filling levels satisfy your personal comfort levels. When filled to most comfortable level - unzip, close the inner gusset bag and outer cover zip. Keep spare beads in a funnelweb or transport bag for top ups when the beads inevitably compress a little over time.
