The W&H Care Guide

Of course, alongside this guide our knowledgeable team are always on hand and happy to help you further so do get in contact if you have any questions.

If you've opted for either our siliconized hollow fibre or our feather-wrapped foam seat cushions, to keep them looking as lovely and full as they do in our piccies you'll need to be prepared to give them a good plumping. If you think you're not going to do this then steer clear and stick with our reflex foam filling, which is far better behaved. The best way to plump cushions is to:
Remove from your item
Give them a loving beating from all sides
Shake them like a maraca
Drop onto a clean floor to push the air back into them
Pop back on your item
Ease the filling out of its case
Plump and tease the fibres
Ease the filling back into its case evenly
Close the zip securely
Pop back on your item
Vacuum your item on a low setting using the brush attachment to remove pesky dust particles, prevent soiling and to help reduce any natural piling. Be gentle - any industrial vacuum on a high setting is not your item’s friend!
If you have a sofa bed then we also suggest you vacuum the mattress and leave it open to air for 3-4 hours.
Clean your feet
Use a damp cloth rinsed in warm water (not detergent) to clean the wooden legs of your item and polish them with a natural wax if you wish.
Keeping your sofa bed and bed mattress tip top
Give yourself time to fall in love
One sided or ‘no-turn’ mattresses should be “rotated” so that the head end becomes the foot end. This is super important in the first few months of use when the snug top layer begins to settle. Two sided or ‘turn’ mattresses should be flipped once a week for the first few months and then once a month thereafter.
Give your mattress a clean with a soft brush or a vacuum but remember to never use detergent or chemical cleaner as this can cause staining, bleaching and damage to its lovely cover and fillings.
