Family Friendly Fabrics

We all know the scenario - turn your back for two minutes, and sticky fingers find their way onto your lovely new sofa! Whether jam, chocolate spread, pizza or ice cream - with our Family Friendly Fabrics they will be foes no more. Ok, we can’t blame it all on the kids - that accidental red wine stain or drop of soy sauce from last night’s takeaway won’t ruin the look of your sofa either thanks to the innovative Aquaclean® technology in the fabric.

Family Friendly Fabrics

Relax! You don’t have to be scared of stains any more...


What is Aquaclean® Technology?

Aquaclean® Technology is a revolutionary fabric treatment that allows you to clean stains using just water. It helps to remove the majority of household stains (wine, ink, sauce, fat, mud, chocolate, cream, etc.) with ease, meaning you can keep your sofa or chair looking as good as new.

Aquaclean® covers every fibre of the fabric with an invisible molecular layer that prevents dirt from penetrating the fabric. As opposed to other liquid repellents on the market, Aquaclean® Technology not only acts as a repellent but also helps with cleaning. It allows stains on the fabric to pass water through the fibres more easily, making them much easier to clean.

For more information on how Aquaclean® Technology works, and advice on how to clean stains, take a look at the video:

How do I remove stains from my sofa?

The Aquaclean® Technology in our Family Friendly Fabrics means that you can clean household stains with just water is three simple steps:

1. Remove any excess residue on the upholstery.

2. Apply water over the stain, either directly or using a damp cloth. Wait a few seconds.

3. Press down over the stain with a damp cloth and rub gently over the fabric in circular movements. If the stain does not come off completely, repeat the process as required.



What Family Friendly Fabrics do you offer?

At The Lounge Co. you can choose between three types of Family Friendly Fabric; Basket Weave, Soft Chenille or our newest addition Kaleidoscope Weave. Each has it’s own distinct quality and is available in a stylish range of colours. Unlike fabrics that are treated with chemical-laden spray-on protection after the sofa is made, Aquaclean® is part of the fabric which means it feels soft to the touch, it’s also been certified by Made in Green®, which guarantees the absence of harmful substances and that the manufacturing process respects the environment.
