How do you clean futons and kotatsu covers?
Most laundry machines cannot fit futons or kotatsu covers. Read the label to see how to take care of your kotatsu cover – whether it can be washed or needs to be dry cleaned.
Kotatsu covers and futon comforters can be taken to most dry cleaners and some coin laundries have a futon washer.
In order to keep your futon mattress clean, make sure to fold your futon away when it’s not being used. Leaving your futon out during the day may allow mold or mites to grow underneath. Air out your futon on sunny days on your balcony to kill any fungus or mold that may be growing inside and use a beater to beat out any dust.
