As kids play and create endless configurations on their Nugget couch, messy spills and stains can happen. Thankfully, the durable microsuede fabric that covers each foam piece is machine-washable. However, to maintain the soft texture of the fabric and keep its color from fading or shrinking, it’s important to follow the washing guidelines for both the covers and the foam.

To wash the covers, simply remove them from the foam pieces and machine wash on a gentle or delicate cycle with cold water. Avoid using bleach or fabric softeners, which may damage the fabric and impact its performance. Then, either air dry the covers or tumble dry on low heat to prevent mold or mildew growth.

It’s also important to take special care when cleaning Nugget covers with printed or dyed designs. Spot cleaning with upholstery cleaner is a good option, as it effectively targets specific areas without saturating the entire cover. It’s also crucial to air dry the covers and foam completely before reassembling to prevent mildew or mold from developing.

Besides washing the covers, another way to keep your Nugget clean and free from pet hair is to use a lint roller regularly. Lint rollers effectively lift and remove pet hair from the microsuede fabric, keeping your Nugget covered in a soft, fur-free way.

For those looking for a more permanent solution, Nugget offers liner sets that fit underneath the colored sofa covers to protect the foam. These liner sets are also GREENGUARD Gold certified, which means they have been rigorously screened and scientifically tested for more than 15,000 VOCs to ensure that they don’t emit any harmful chemicals.
