Polyester bead pillows may have removable covers for easy laundering, or they may have attached covers that need to be vacuumed, spot-cleaned and disinfected without removal. Common poly bead pillow coverings include vinyl, cotton, canvas and polyester. Choose a cleanser that addresses the specific type of fabric covering the beans, as well as the type of cleansing the beanbag needs.

    Cleaning Vinyl- or Plastic-covered Poly Bead Pillows

  1. 1

    Wipe all soiled areas off of the pillow with a mixture of liquid dish detergent and warm water, using a clean cloth. Do not use abrasive detergents, as these may damage the fabric.

  2. 2

    Scrub any difficult spots gently with a toothbrush.

  3. 3

    Dry the surface of the beanbag using a clean cloth.

    Cleaning Cotton-, Canvas- or Polyester-covered Poly Bead Pillows

  1. 1

    Vacuum the bag, if necessary. Vacuuming is the best method of removing pet hair, sand, crumbs and loose soil from fabric.

  2. 2

    Remove the fabric cover, if possible. Use washing powder and a washing machine to wash the cover in a gentle cycle. Dry it on a cool setting or air dry to avoid shrinkage.

  3. 3

    Wash spots off of nonremovable fabric covers with liquid detergent, warm water and a clean cloth. Be careful not to soak the fabric so that it does not take too long to air dry.

  4. 4

    Remove any difficult spots with a stain stick or spray stain-remover and toothbrush.

  5. 5

    Dry the pillow using a clean cloth. You may also use a hair dryer on a cool setting.

  6. 6

    Remove odours by spraying the beanbag with disinfectant, if desired.

Tips and warnings

  • Never put a poly bead pillow in water. This can damage the bag and it may develop mould before it can dry.
