One question that’s regularly asked about bouclé, especially given that it’s most commonly found in shades of cream and pale neutrals, is – is it hard to keep clean?
And the answer, thankfully, is no!
It has a low liquid absorption, which means if you’re quick on your feet, spills won’t be a big deal.
The vacuum will be your bestie with a piece of bouclé furniture – give it a whiz with the upholstery attachment for general maintenance and to keep the pile looking the goods, or to deal with dry spills like crumbs.
It’s important not to use the spinny floor attachment though, as it’ll damage the bouclé pile.
As with any kind of upholstery, if you spill a liquid on to bouclé, get onto it before it dries.
Use a clean microfibre cloth and some warm water with gentle soap or wool wash to coax the stain out in circular motions, moving towards the centre of the stain, and let it dry naturally.
