Can I wash it?

With ease! Our microsuede is really durable, and machine washing works great. To preserve color, wash on cold with only Nugget pieces of the same color, and hang dry to prevent shrinking — we recommend using clear-color detergents like All's Free Clear. For the small stuff, you can spot clean with a moist cloth or a carpet/upholstery cleaning solution.

*Elmo Special Edition embroidered pillows are spot clean only.

How do I wash my Liner Set?

With a couldn’t-be-simpler three-step process: 1) Zip up each piece 2) Wash on cold by themselves 3) Air dry. If this process feels familiar, you’re right – it’s the same process for washing Cover Sets! If you have any direct stains to the Liner Set, dilute some Dawn dish soap in water and gently remove the stain with a clean cloth.

What cleaning solution do you recommend?

Accidents happen! Over the years, we've compiled a list of common stains from our Nuggeteers. We tested the following products on these stains to help you know what to reach for first! When spot cleaning, use these products with a damp washcloth and make sure to take the cover off before cleaning so that the stain isn't absorbed into your foam. After spot cleaning, wash your cover on cold by itself and hang to dry.

How do I clean the foam?

You can spot clean your foam by taking a wet rag and your favorite upholstery cleaner to the product — we've tested Folex and like it the best. Once you're done, make sure that your Nugget foam is completely dry before putting the covers back on. You can set the foam near a fan or open window to help speed up this process.

For future accidents, we highly recommend protecting your foam with Nugget Liner Set, made from OEKO-Tex™ Certified waterproof material.

Are Nuggets waterproof?

We chose not to waterproof the Nugget, because the sprays contain chemicals that many families choose to keep out of their homes. The Nugget fabric is thicker than most of our customers expect, able to hold small messes pretty well until you’re able to clean them up. We do know that accidents happen with little ones, though! To protect your foam from unwanted spills, accidents, and mishaps, we suggest purchasing a Nugget Liner Set, made from OEKO-Tex™ Certified waterproof material.

Pet hair is an issue at my house — is it an issue on a Nugget?

Like on any upholstery, fur can cling to it a bit, so many people like to match the color of the Nugget to hide it. But unlike on other furniture, fur is extra quick and easy to clear off! Vacuuming or swiping with a lint roller both work like a charm. You can pick up or flip each piece effortlessly, so there aren't any nooks and crannies and unreachable spots — only simple flat surfaces.

Can I leave the Nugget outside?

Feel free to bring the Nugget to dry outdoor places like the patio or deck, but don't leave it there. Direct outdoor sunlight fades the fabric colors, and the Nugget isn't waterproof — which will mean some soggy bottoms if rain clouds roll in.
