How to clean a headboard

Unfortunately, there isn’t a single method to clean a headboard because the types of material used differ, such as wooden, leather, metal, polyester, suede and many more. Please take into consideration the type of stain you want to remove because treating watermarks and ink require two completely different approaches.

Depending on how much time you have and the severity of the stain, you should also decide whether you can and want to do it yourself or whether it would be best to get it cleaned by a professional. Here is and article going into detail on how to clean a headboard and how to make homemade cleaning solutions as well.

How to clean a wooden headboard

  A solid wood headboard has an elegant style which will add a touch of class to any traditional bedroom, so unless your headboard has a protective plastic coating, avoid cleaning with water or commercial cleaning products that are not specifically designed for wood – when using these, always follow the instructions on the label. Test any other cleaning method on a small, unnoticeable area first to ensure that it is suitable for your furniture.

  • Target any grease or sticky spots on unsealed wood with a gentle cleaning solution of soap or mild detergent dissolved in water, using a clean, damp cloth to spot-treat the affected area.
  • Once the mark has been removed, rinse carefully and wipe with a dry cloth.

Harder stains such as watermarks or alcohol spots can also be cleaned but will require a stronger solution such as polish. If your furniture has a finish, refer to the manufacturers guidelines to check which polishing products are suitable as this can vary widely.

A genuine leather headboard is fantastic and has an authentic look and feel so before you begin, check the manufacturer’s label for any details about how it should be cleaned. Still, the common method to clean a leather upholstered headboard is:

  • Begin by vacuuming the leather with a soft brush to remove dust and hair;
  • To remove dirt and grime, use a moisturizing soap and a little water to wash the area. Make sure the cloth is slightly damp, not drenched, so you don’t over wet the surface;
  • Mix a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and distilled water and gently scrub the surface;
  • In the end, buff the leather with a soft dry cloth and polish as usual.

Tips and tricks

You can prolong your headboard life by maintaining it properly and treating any stains the right way.

  • Treat stains as soon as possible.
  • Add an extra layer of protection using slipcover
  • Dust and steam clean on regular basis.
  • Try placing a pillow between you and the headboard to increase its lifespan.
