Who doesn’t love the memory foam cushion? It’s the perfect addition to your sofa or bed, but it can get dirty over time. Fortunately, there are several ways you can clean your memory foam cushions without having to replace them. Below we’ll go over how to safely clean your cushions so that they’re as good as new.

Vacuum your cushions with an upholstery attachment.

  • Use an upholstery attachment.
  • Use a crevice tool to get into the corners and seams.
  • Use a brush attachment to get into the cracks.

Treat stains on the cushion using laundry or stain remover.

To treat the stains on your cushion, you can use a laundry detergent or stain remover. You can also make use of a home remedy or professional cleaning product if you do not want to use chemicals.

If you are not sure what product to use, we recommend that you contact a professional cleaning service and ask them for advice.

Determine the safe temperature for washing by reading the manufacturer’s label.

To determine the safe temperature for washing memory foam cushions, you must first read the manufacturer’s label. If it says “washable” on your cushion then washing at home is an option. However, if it doesn’t say anything about being washable, then don’t risk doing so. You may end up damaging your cushion and making it unusable which will cost you more money than just buying a new one! If there is no label and/or instructions available on how to clean or maintain this type of product then contact the manufacturer directly for further assistance in determining whether or not their products are machine-washable..

Use a front-loading machine as opposed to a top-loading washer.

When it comes to choosing a washer for your memory foam cushions, you should go with a front-loading machine. The reason is that the agitator in top loaders can be too harsh on the foam, causing it to tear and rip. This can lead to holes forming in your cushion and make it uncomfortable to sit on.

The other major consideration when picking out a washing machine is capacity; you want something that will hold all of your cushions without taking up too much space or being too large for your laundry room. A good rule of thumb is that if you’re washing two large pillows or blankets together at once (which we recommend), then you’ll need enough room for them plus one more small item like pants or towels—that way everything gets washed evenly and thoroughly without having to worry about getting things mixed up between cycles!

Dry the pillows in a dryer on low heat with no dryer sheets, fabric softener, or bleach.

If you want to dry your cushions in the dryer, use low heat with no dryer sheets, fabric softener, or bleach. Dry them for less than 15 minutes at a time and don’t set the temperature higher than medium. Remember that memory foam is a material that traps heat and will continue to heat up even when removed from a hot environment like a dryer. So make sure it has time to cool down before you take it out of the machine (or place it back into its case).

Memory foam can also be air dried at room temperature over several days if necessary—just make sure there are no moisture issues before doing so by checking out this article on how to tell if your mattress is wet!

You can also air dry them outside if it’s not windy and not raining.

Air drying your memory foam cushions is a good option for pillows. You can air dry them in the sun, in the shade, in your garage or even on a clothesline (if you’re handy enough to rig one up). If you want to go the extra mile and make sure that your pillows are completely clean before putting them back on your bed, use a drying rack instead of just hanging them out to air dry. A drying rack will let all sides of the pillow get sufficient airflow so that no moisture remains inside when you put it back into its case.

Memory foam cushions get dirty quite often

Memory foam cushions are not easy to clean, but they are good quality and can last a long time. They often come with a cover that you can take off and wash. If you have a foam mattress or pillow, the best thing to do is remove the cover and hand-wash it in cold water with mild detergent. Let it dry in the shade before putting it back on your memory foam cushion or mattress.

If for some reason your memory foam cushion cannot be washed, then you can try using stain removers or spot cleaners specifically designed for cleaning upholstery fabric; however, I would recommend using these products very sparingly as they might damage your memory foam cushion over time if used too frequently (or even just once).


Cleaning your memory foam cushions is simple, but it does need to be done. If you have kids or pets, these pillows will need to be cleaned often. It’s good practice to keep them clean so they last longer than expected and don’t become a source of allergy or discomfort in your home.
