Her gaming chair Like any other frequently used piece of furniture, it can soon become a breeding ground for germs and allergens. Multiple studies have found that the typical gaming station harbors 400 times more bacteria than a toilet seat. The longer stains remain, the harder it is to remove them. Based on their materials, here's how to clean the most common gaming chairs.

 

Step 1: Check the material of your gaming chair

Before cleaning, check the material composition of the chair. You can usually find this information on the chair's label, in the manufacturer's instructions, or in the product description. The most widely used materials are:

  • Leather (PU leather and PVC leather)
  • Mesh
  • Fabric

 

Step 2: Prepare everything for cleaning

It's time to gather the essential cleaning supplies, which may vary depending on your makeup:

  • Cleaning gloves
  • A bucket of warm water
  • Feather dusters, brushes and rags in different sizes
  • Cleaning solvents
  • Alkoholspray
  • A handheld vacuum or a standard vacuum cleaner

 

Step 3: Remove dust and dirt from the surface

If your chair is made of PU or PVC leather, you can easily clean the surface with a feather duster or microfiber cloth. The static properties cling to dust and lift all dirt from the surface effortlessly.

If you have a chair with mesh or fabric upholstery that easily collects a lot of dust and dirt, you can easily remove dust particles from the chair surface using a handheld or standard vacuum cleaner. Don't press too hard. Rub gently over the entire surface of the chair.

 

Step 4: Clean the upholstery thoroughly with water or cleaning supplies

It's time for a thorough cleaning after the surface dust has been removed from the chair. The first thing you should do is read the cleaning instructions printed on the chair's label. It is marked “S”, “W” or “B/W”.

“W” means that only water can be used to clean the chair. “S” means a cleaning solvent should be used instead. “B/W” means that water, solvent or both can be used. The way you clean a gaming chair with water or solvents depends on the material.

Tips:

  • Use a soft cloth or sponge to gently rub the leather with cleaning solution. Avoid damaging the chair when applying the cleaning solvent carefully.
  • Fabrics stand up to thorough cleaning and look better after scrubbing with a brush or cloth.
  • It is not recommended to scrape a mesh gaming chair. Instead, it should be gently wiped until it looks cleaner.

 

Step 5: Remove stubborn stains

If some unclean spots remain visible after cleaning with water, you may need to clean them, such as: B. with milk, coffee, juice or another liquid substance. To avoid damaging the surface of your gaming chair, you can use rubbing alcohol or other solvent cleaners on even the most stubborn stains.

Select a small area on the bottom of the seat to dab with the alcohol cotton ball and let it sit for a few minutes to observe how effective it is. If the alcohol damages the surface of your gaming chair, you can choose an alternative method for removing stubborn stains.

However, if the area remains undamaged afterwards, you can wipe it with a little alcohol until stubborn stains begin to fade over time. Remember not to overdo it and not to pour large amounts of alcohol directly onto the stain, as this will shorten the life of the chair.

 

Step 6: Finish the rest of the accessories

Once all the stains are removed, it is time to proceed to cleaning the armrests, pillow, etc. without causing any inconvenience and maintaining their cleanliness after opening the structure for maintenance. All you need is a feather duster or rag and a bowl of warm water and mild detergent.

Then you might focus on the underside of your seat, where most of the dirt accumulates. The frame, shell and rollers can be made of stainless steel, metal, plastic, etc. Cleaning stainless steel is similar to cleaning plastic.

If you want to disinfect them, you can use a Cleaning solvents use. This is recommended if you sit and play for a long time without showering.
