Down Feather Cushion Cleaning

Some upholstery cushions are filled with down feathers. There are certain companies that will suck out the feathers, fluff them up, and then re-install them into couch cushions. These directions explain how to clean the cushions with the feathers still in them.


  1. Use particleboard to tack cushion onto board to avoid shrinking and losing shape until dry.
  2. With a pump-up sprayer, apply Matrix Outset Upholstery Prespray undiluted.
  3. Using an extraction machine, clean with Matrix Impression Upholstery Cleaning Concentrate diluted at 1-2 oz per gallon of water.
  4. Remove from particleboard and speed dry with air movers.
  5. Fluff and replace back onto the couch.

Warning: Always test material for colorfastness, follow label directions, and never mix product unless specified in the label direction. Each situation reacts differently and results may very.
