We try our sofas and armchairs

At IKEA we try all our sofas and armchairs to be sure that they are durable. And we are specially demanding with those that have many years of guarantee. For example, we place a weight of 100 kg on the seat 50.000 times, and weights of 30 kg on the back of it the same number of times. And we do all of this to ensure that the structures will keep their stability and the cushions their elasticity and comfort. The guarantees we offer are proof that our sofas and armchairs can withstand being used frequently and during a long period of time, and are an assurance for you as a customer.

Care instructions

Cushions must be cared for so they keep their comfort. They must be fluffed in a regular basis, at least once a month. They also must be alternated, in a way that the cushions that are used the most interchange their place with those that are used less frequently.
Tighten the screws of the legs after two weeks of use, and make sure that they remain tight by checking twice a year.

Washable covers

  • Follow the maintenance and cleaning instructions.
  • Iron them while they are still a little bit damp.
  • Place the cover again when it is still a little bit damp, it stretches more easily and adapts quickly to the right shape. But it is important that the cover is not too damp when it is placed on the structure again.

Leather

  • Vacuum regularly with the soft brush accessory.
  • Do not place the leather furniture in direct sunlight and leave a space of 12" to any source of heat to avoid the lather from drying.
  • Never use detergents when cleaning them.
  • The white leather or light color furniture are sensitive to strong colors such red wine or coffee. For this reason they need to be cleaned immediately.

Before using it for the first time

At the beginning your new mattress can seem a bit hard. Let a month go for your body to get used to the mattress and for the mattress to get used to your body. Rolled up mattresses recover their shape after 3-4 days of use.
All new materials have their own particular smell, that disappears gradually. To aerate and vacuum the mattress will help to get rid of the smell.
For a better comfort, you need the right pillow. Make sure you have a pillow that adapts to you and your new mattress.

89 nights to change policy

It is important for us that you sleep well on your new mattress. If you discover that it doesn't completely satisfy you, after waiting one month for the body to get used to it, bring us the new mattress and try a new one. You have 89 nights to sleep on it! To change the mattress, it must not show any signs of stains or dirt. No money refund will be made on used or opened mattresses.

Care and cleaning

Complement the mattress with a mattress protector or a mattress pad. It will make it more hygienic as it is easier to remove and clean. Some mattresses and mattress pad have a washable cover. Read the label that you'll find inside the cover for more information. Make sure that the zip is closed when washing the cover. Vacuuming the mattress helps to get rid of dust and mites. Use upholstery soap to get rid of stains.
If your mattress can be turned, turn it every three months more or less. In this way you guarantee a more homogeneous wear and helps to extend comfort. Don't bend the mattress. You can damage the springs and the inside materials.
Even the best mattresses lose comfort over time and all mattresses accumulate dust and mites over the years. For this reason, even though mattresses have a 25 year guarantee, we recommend that you change your mattress every 8-10 years.
This guarantee offers you specific legal rights.

Care instructions

Cleaning

  • Always wash by hand.
  • Clean and dry the knife after each use. By doing this many unsightly marks on the blade will be avoided and any risk of bacterial contamination will be prevented, for example, from chicken or fresh vegetables.

Sharpening

  • A sharpened knife is safer that one that is not. Even though the knife is made of stainless steel, molybdenum and vanadium, which seems that the blade is resistant and durable, it is necessary to sharpen from time to time. It is recommended to do so once a week for a domestic use.
  • The sharpener must be made of a harder material than the blade's steel. For this reason, the best option is a ceramic sharpener, a diamond sharpener or a sharpening stone.
  • If the knife turns very blunt as a consequence of a long use without a regular sharpening, or due to lack of care, it will be necessary for a professional to sharpen the blade to restore it.

Storing and use of the knife

  • Avoid cutting frozen or very hard food (as bones), as this could bend the blade or detach splinters. In order to cut hard food, get the knife through the food, do not move the knife back and forth.
  • Always use the knife on a cutting board of wood or plastic. Never cut on a glass, porcelain or metal surface.
  • Store the knife on a knives block or on a magnetic wall support. Storing the knife correctly protects the blade and extends its service life.

Care instructions

Enamelled steel products can only be washed by hand.
Do not use steel scrubbers or abrasive sponges to wash the cookware, as they can damage the surface.
The base of the product is slightly concave when cold, but it extends and flattens with heat. Because of this, it is necessary to let it get cold before washing. This allows it to return to its original shape and helps prevent it from deforming with use.
It is also important not to leave it wet, as it can lose its shape.
Enamelled steel cookware can be used on any type of hob and it is oven safe.
Cast iron and carbon steel cookware can only be washed by hand. A cast iron and carbon steel pot or pan must be seasoned. To season a pot or pan, rub a small amount of oil onto all its surface. Then, warm up the pot or pan in an oven or on the hob at a maximum of 150ºC (300ºF) for a minimum of one hour. Let it cool and wipe off any excess oil. This treatment must be repeated three times when the product is new. After seasoning the pan or pot these three times, you just have to do it once in a while. If you see any corrosion or food staining, or if food sticks and burns, the pan or pot can be washed in a steel scrubber or abrasive sponge and seasoned afterwards.
Clean the battery after use by hand-washing it with water and a brush. Washing the product while it remains warm will make it easier to clean. It must be carefully dried after washing.
Do not expose the product to major temperature changes, such as taking it out of the fridge and putting it in the oven.
