Caring for your IL Tutto Furniture

Looking after your iL Tutto furniture will not only maintain the appearance of your beautiful piece but extend its life. Il Tutto’s range is made with high quality, premium fabric that is exclusive to iL Tutto. 

All our furniture plays an important part of the look and style of your home and it is important to understand how to care for your iL Tutto furniture. 

Common and accidental stains are inevitable with a newborn. Your iL Tutto pieces will encounter accidental stainsreflux stains & unwanted smells. We have put together some short videos with our best tips & trick to clean those inevitable messes. Watch them here. 

While we protect all iL Tutto Nursing Chairs with scotch guard, it’s recommended to re-apply every 2 – 3 years for better protection from wear and tear, spillages, and other messes. You can either get someone to visit your home to professionally spray your chair, or simply buy a spray can from your local supermarket and re-apply yourself. Please ensure no one is in the house when you do, properly cover your face and hands and ideally, leave the chair for 24 hours to properly soak up and dry before using. 

For all ongoing care instructions for the material type; please read through below.

Treating your iL Tutto items from Pilling: 

Firstly, what is pilling? For those who don’t know, Pilling is what happens when the settling stages of new fabrics make their way to the surface of the fabric and form small balls of fibre. At times, these balls may be of a different colour than the fabric and this indicates a different fabric has either caused or contributed to the pilling.  

The good news is that the pills can be removed quickly and easily by a de-pilling machine.
