Cleaning your Elephant!
Ok so after your brand new Elephant beanbag arrives we don’t tend to think about the aftercare as it is being sat on, played on, slept on, used as an eating area, drinking area. Whatever it may be it is likely it is going to get grubby.
Before I tell you our top tips for cleaning your Elephant beanbag, my first tip is to clean as you go (saves the amount of elbow grease).
I have used everything on the Elephants I have at home. Including bleach.
Felt tip pens and biro marks. I use a baby wipe (any brand).
Mud and general dirt. I use hot soapy water. I use either detergent or washing up liquid.
Stains that I have no idea how long they have been there :-) I use a kitchen spray and a cloth.
If we have been at a show where the public have used the Elephants over a few days it is hard to keep them clean. I use the steam cleaner! I steam clean the whole bag (no need to empty the beads out) Before the steam has dried I then use hot soapy water and a lot of elbow grease and scrub them until they are clean.
Now we have had some customers that have left them outside and they may have become mouldy. I suggest store them inside during the winter if space allows. If this ever happens… Bleach or Milton. Works a treat steam clean them and hot water and Milton or bleach will get the damp spots out.
Our Elephant dog beds come with an outer cover that can be put in the washing machine. I would a max of a 30 degree wash for your Elephant dog bed.
Our Nylon material Elephant jumbo and juniors are waterproof so any spillage of drinks should be easily cleaned with a cloth.
I hope this helps!
