You may not know this, but cotton is the most popular fiber in the world. Why? Because it’s durable, easily dyed, absorbent, soft, and comfortable to touch. These characteristics make it the fabric of choice for clothing, towels, bedding, and more.
We’re not the first people to recognize the virtues of this versatile fiber. Cotton has been cultivated globally for thousands of years. From underwear to overcoats, clothing continues to be the most common use for cotton. The same features that make cotton ideal for clothing make it perfect for upholstery.
Like your clothing, all upholstery, including cotton, must be cleaned periodically for appearance and health. Furniture manufacturers recommend cleaning every 12-24 months. Failure to do so can result in an unwanted appearance change called soil staining. Soil staining occurs when soils, oils, and pollutants adhere to the fibers and oxidize. This can result in permanent dulling of colors and changes to fabric texture.
