You can refresh your cushion foam by replacing any one of the following:
- The cushion cover
- The pillow
- The pillow case
- The mattress
- The mattress cover
- The mattress pad
You may also want to replace some other pieces as well, such as the bed frame or slats.

There are a few ways for you to freshen your cushion foam. You can clean the foam, refresh it, or even replace all three parts of the cushion. Cleaning is an effective way to remove odor from your cushions and keep them smelling fresh.

Replacing just one part—in this case, the filling—is called “filling up” or “refilling” since it replaces only one piece of a set (the bottom).
