he holiday season is coming up and what better way to celebrate the festivities than to do so on freshly cleaned fabrics. Soon, your home will (hopefully) be full of family, friends and food; and you’d want to enjoy that experience in the cleanest and tidiest environment possible.

That explained, we’d like to get all our cleaning done around this time of year – so that we can truly enjoy the festivities and relax later. To ensure that your fabrics are hygienic and look their best when your guests inevitably show up for a cozy meal around the table, think no further. We have set this guide to teach you the quickest, easiest and most effective way to clean the fabrics.


  • Vacuum cleaner
  • Soft, clean cloth (a couple is good)
  • Clean towel
  • Mild detergent (dish soap)
  • Bucket of warm water
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • White vinegar


  1. Start by vacuuming your chairs so that you can work from a dust-free base. This should be a regular part of your cleaning routine, as dust build-up can cause more problems later down the line.
  2. Once your chairs are vacuumed, you need to start spot cleaning. If you want to clean fabric dining chairs entirely, we recommend using a professional cleaning service. However, for everyday use, spot cleaning will be just fine. Of course, which method you use will depend on the type of spillage, stain, or dirt mark.
  3. For red wine stains, you should blot the liquid as soon as possible to clear up any excess. Then, dab with a solution of 3:1 rubbing alcohol and water.
  4. For coffee or tea, again, blot up the excess as much as you can. Next, mix a solution of white vinegar and rubbing alcohol (equal ratio) and soak a cloth in the solution. Dab the coffee/tea spillage gently with the cloth, then use a new, clean cloth to press into the area and soak everything up.
  5. For chocolate stains (including ice cream!), make sure to get any solid residue up by scraping away. Then, mix a solution of liquid detergent and warm water to clean away. Blot away any liquid with a clean cloth or towel and then re-clean again with cold water.
  6. If you wish, you can clean your chair all over with warm soapy water and a soft cloth, but allow for adequate drying time. You could also steam clean for extra effectiveness if you have access to the right tools.

Now you’ve got all the tips on how to clean fabric dining chairs, we’d love to hear from you in the comments. Did these methods work for you? Do you have any great cleaning tips to share with our community? Let us know – and happy cleaning!

Best ways to arrange furniture in your home: Top Tips & Advice


It might sound trivial but the way you’ve laid out your furniture really can change the way you feel and live in the space. Of course, it’s a no-brainer that a different layout will impact the look of a room. But not everyone considers the functionality and homeliness of the furniture layout. In today’s blog post, we’re going to run you through our top tips for arranging a room. We’ve always got a few tips up our sleeves so hopefully, this will help some of you out there! Perhaps you’ve just moved into a new house and you’ve got a blank canvas to work with. Maybe you’ve been living somewhere for years and you feel like it needs a reset. Either way, there are always easy ways of changing up the look and feel of your home. Just make sure you’ve got a helping hand for shifting heavy furniture – we don’t want any injuries!


Obviously, interior design is a very personal thing. We can all follow trends and styles but ultimately, it’s got to be down to your personal preference. After all, you’ve got to live in your home every day! All we can do is give you some tips and advice on arranging your furniture in a way that makes sense. We want to maximize space, keep things homely and overall, improve the functionality of your home. Here are our top tips…


Every room of your house will have a natural focal point and if they don’t, you have to choose one. For example, in the bathroom, your bath tends to be the main point of focus. In the living room, your large corner sofa will probably act like this. This is where the most action takes place, where the eye is drawn to and ultimately, where you will work from. Working outwards from the focal point means the rest of the room will flow properly. For example, if your sofa is covered in soft furnishings like blankets and cushions, you might choose to contrast this with hard edges. Likewise, if it’s a pretty large piece of furniture, the rest of your furniture might need to be on the smaller side. Plus, it’s simply more logistic.


It can be hard to visualize how you’re going to design your room’s layout if it’s full of stuff. If at all possible, empty your room so that you can begin with a fresh mind. Move the larger pieces of furniture in first so that you can place them properly, then work up to the smaller stuff.


How do people enter and exit the room? Where do people walk when they pass through? Is there a specific place people like to sit or stand? Think about the general routes through a room and areas for sitting when putting your large furniture back. Don’t block doors so much that it’s hard to squeeze past! A room should be flowing and make sense. Likewise, don’t block windows if you’re all about that natural light. This is probably a no-brainer but if you’re rearranging at night, you might not appreciate how much a larger piece of furniture can alter the light in a room.
