    1Vacuum up dirt and dust. Start with an upholstery attachment, which has a wide plastic end and a brush underneath. The brush is soft enough that it won’t scratch leather and vinyl upholstery. Pass the vacuum over the chair’s seat, back and arms.

    -After going over the upholstery with the upholstery attachment, you can use the crevice tool to cover areas that are harder to reach.

    - Make sure the suction isn’t too strong, as this could damage leather upholstery.

    2.Mix a solution of liquid soap and water. Use a natural, biodegradable dish detergent as your soap. Make sure to test the solution on a small, inconspicuous part of the upholstery; this is the only way to be absolutely sure the solution won’t damage it. Depending on what the upholstery is made of, the makeup of your solution will vary.

    - For leather upholstery, mix a few drops of soap with a quart (946ml) of water.

    -For fabric upholstery, mix a quarter cup (59ml) of soap with a cup (237ml) of warm water.

    - For vinyl and fabric, you can use a 1:1 solution, meaning you can use equal parts soap and water.

    3.Dip a rag in your cleaning solution and wipe down the upholstery. Make sure you use a clean, lint-free cloth. Dampen your rag rather than soaking it; you don’t want to leave an excess of cleaning solution on the upholstery. Be careful not to rub or scrub, as this could fray mesh or scratch leather.

    4. Wipe the upholstery with a dry cloth. Wipe away any water or soap residue, then allow the chair to air dry. Keep the chair in a well ventilated area. This will allow it to dry faster.

    Cleaning the Wheels, Arms and Legs

    1.Flip the chair upside down and remove the wheels. You might find it easier to work if you’re seated in a different chair. You’ll avoid being continuously bent down, which will save your back. Some wheels pop off just from pulling, while others may require the use of a screwdriver.

    2. Use a butter knife to scrape off large debris. Whether it’s dried food, gunk or even small pebbles, any of these can hinder your office chair’s movement. The butter knife can slip into the crack between the wheel and its cover, allowing you to scrape off or pop out any debris stuck in the wheel.

    - If there are hairs stuck in the wheel, you can use a tweezer to remove them.

    3. Wipe the wheel with a dry cloth. This should take care of any mess you can’t scrape off with the butter knife. If the wheels are particularly dirty, dampen your cloth and add a few drops of dish-washing soap.

    - If you need to clean between the wheel and the cover, you can use a cotton swab moistened with water to clean along the crack.

    4. Use paper towels to dry the wheels. Any moisture left on the wheel will prevent it from rolling smoothly. Wipe the wheel thoroughly with paper towels, especially if you used soap.
