Things to Take Care of Before Cleaning LoveSac Covers

Not all covers are cleaned in the same manner. Before cleaning one, read the LoveSac cover washing instructions tag present on it. It would tell you whether you can wash it or not. And if you can, what’s the method to follow.

Avoid using any fabric softener when washing a cover. Similarly, you should only line dry it. Furthermore, never place it in a dryer after cleaning it.

It is so because using a dryer to dry out your cover might shrink the cover and cause you issues when putting it back again. You might not even be able to put it back again.

Some LoveSac fabrics are dry clean while others can be washed using water and mild soap. Nevertheless, the company claims that the covers can be washed without any problem of pilling, shrinking of material, or color fading.

Following are the fabrics that you can dry clean:

  • Gray gold damask cut chenille
  • Waled velvets
  • Heathered tweeds
  • Cross weaves
  • Gotham jacquards

The following LoveSac fabrics can be spot cleaned with a mixture of mild soap and water:

  • Sunbrella outdoor sactionals fabric
  • Standard leather fabric
  • Faux leather fabric
  • Top grain leather fabric

You can clean the LoveSac bean bag and sactional covers in the following way:

Step 1. Unzip and Remove Cover

First of all, remove the cover from the bean bag, sofa, or couch. Be careful while removing the bean bag cover as you might damage the filler material.

Step 2. Pat or Wipe the Cover to Remove Dirt and Debris

Then, you may dust off the cover to get rid of debris, dirt, and dust before washing it. In this way, you will be able to clean the cover on your own without using any cleaning agent or washing machine.

Remember to zip them shut before you start patting or wiping them.

Step 3. Remove Visible Stains from Cover

If you can see any clearly visible stains, you can remove them using any good-quality washing soap. But first, wipe out the spill with the help of dry doweling. Then, use a soap to clean it.

Directly apply some of it to the stain and let it sit for half an hour. Next, you can scrub the area of the stain with a clean cloth moistened with cold water.

Step 4. Vacuum the Cover

Post that, you can vacuum the covers after dusting them off. You can also vacuum them while they are still on the beanbags, sofa, or other things. 

Step 5. Put Cover in the Washing Machine

If there is still stubborn dirt, debris, or stains, put the covers in the washer. Add the required amount of cold water and set the settings on a gentle wash cycle. 

You may use a laundry detergent such as Gain or Tide pod. But be careful as not all the cover materials can handle the chemicals present in them.

Never ever use any liquid fabric softener to wash the bean bag cover as it is extremely harmful to it and other covers.

Step 6. Hang the Cover to Air Dry

Finally, once they are washed up, you can hang them somewhere safe to dry. Go for air dry and never use a dryer to dry them. Using a dryer will result in the shrinking of the covers and make them completely useless as they will never go back on the beanbag or couch.

Shrinking of the Lovesac temporarily is only useful under certain circumstances such as transportation, storing the bean bag, and more. Otherwise, shrinking the covers unintentionally and permanently will only cause issues for you.

There you have it. Nice, clean, and washed covers are ready to be reassembled. Before you reassemble your bean bag chair or sofa, make sure that the covers are completely or closed to completely dry out, or else your furniture can be ruined.


Not all of the covers are washable. The company has launched a line of washable covers that can be washed safely. Others need extra attention before you wash them. Read the tag to know whether or not you can wash them.

If you want bean bags with covers that are completely safe to wash, there exist multiple options in the market that you can opt for. Just make sure they have the tag or instructions on how to wash them in a safe way to ensure you clean them without ruining their material.

How to Wash Lovesac Blankets?

If you want to clean your dirty Lovesac blanket, you need to follow some steps. Here are the LoveSac blanket washing instructions to help you take care of it:

Tools Required

  • Mild laundry detergent
  • Stain remover (if necessary)
  • Soft-bristle brush
  • Washing machine or sink/basin
  • Dryer or clothesline

Checking the Care Label Instructions

Before proceeding, it is important that you check the care label attached to your Lovesac blanket. It will provide specific care instructions regarding washing and drying methods, water temperature, and any other relevant information. Following the care label instructions ensures you don’t accidentally damage the fabric.

Once you are done with that, start the washing process.

Step 1. Cleaning Any Removeable Stains

Before machine washing the blanket, remove any fresh or new stains from it that can be cleaned by spot-cleaning them. Remember, do not rub a stain or it may damage the blanket’s fabric.

Step 2. Setting the Washing Machine

Then, set your washing machine to a gentle, delicate, or medium cycle with a slow spin speed. Avoid using high-speed spin cycles, as they can cause the blanket to stretch or lose its shape.

Step 3. Using the Right Detergent

To clean the blanket, you should use a mild laundry detergent that is suitable for delicate fabrics. Harsh detergents can damage the fibers of the blanket and thus ruin it, as mentioned earlier.

Step 4. Choosing the Appropriate Water Temperature

Post that, check the care label for the recommended water temperature. Generally, using cold water is a safe option for most Lovesac blankets.

Step 5. Adding the Blanket to the Machine

Next, toss the blanket into the washing machine, ensuring it has enough space to move freely. Overcrowding the machine can lead to inadequate cleaning, so avoid doing so.

Step 6. Starting the Wash Cycle

Begin the wash cycle and let the machine do its work. Once the cycle is complete, you need to dry the Lovesac blanket. For drying, you can either dry it using a dryer on medium or no heat setting.

Or you can air dry the washed blanket by hanging it on a clothing line or laundry rope. Keep it away from direct sunlight as it can ruin the fabric or even shrink it.

  • Cashmere
  • Faux Leather
  • Lace
  • Sheer
  • Leather
  • Suede
  • Rayon
  • Silk
  • Spandex
  • Wool

How to Make LoveSac Covers Smell Clean?

Leave the vinegar till the smell is not gone. Vinegar will absorb the bad smell from the air. Usually, it takes about 12 hours to completely get rid of the bad odor from the room.
