Do you know how to clean an office chair? You use your office chair everyday, but how often do you actually clean it? Spilled coffee, ink from dropped pens and lunchtime crumbs can all accumulate, leaving you with a grubby or even stained chair in need of a deep clean. 

It's important that your working environment, which includes your chair and desk, is clutter free and clean. Working in an untidy environment has been linked to reduced productivity, and you also risk damaging your chair if those little bits of debris, crumbs and dust are allowed to build up over time and get into the mechanisms.
