Can I wash it?
With ease! The microsuede is really durable, and machine washing works great. To preserve colors, we recommend clear-color detergents like All's Free Clear. Wash cold by itself, and hang dry to prevent shrinking. For the small stuff, we recommend spot cleaning with a moist cloth or a carpet/upholstery cleaner.
What cleaning solution do you recommend?
We tested 7 cleaning solutions 3 times each against 14 categories of stains across 10 fabric colors — that's 2940 tests — and determined Folex Carpet Spot Remover to be the best of the bunch. But almost any household carpet and upholstery cleaner will do the job.
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 happens with little ones, though! To protect your foam, we suggest grabbing Goodnites Pads and zipping them between the fabric and foam of the cushion and base.
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.
