These beanbag chairs come in a large selection of fabrics including corduroy, cotton drill, denim, nylon, fur, vinyl, suede and Fil-tec fabric for outdoor beanbags. Bean bag chairs made in cotton drill, denim or nylon are machine washable, however you should really think about removable liners. Emptying the beanbags is not an easy task and is very time consuming. Beanbag chairs, because they are a filled and upholstered furniture, come under a special category for safety standards. It is important that you know the contents of the child‘s beanbag chair and whether it meets the US flammability standards especially if you have children who use the bean bag chairs, Polystyrene beads and polyurethane foam are among the most popular bean bag chair fillers.
In Australia the main retailers are Kmart, Big W, Spotlight and Target. You can also buy beans at many places online. The bags vary in size, the most popular is the 100L bag. Beans in Australia are generally measured in litres but they can also be measured in kilograms. It can get a bit confusing. So for my big two seater beanbag I was instructed to use 450 litres to fill it. I went off to Big W to buy the beans, they come in a 100 litre bag so I bought 5 of them. It is always handy to have some extra beans so that if you bag gets a little flat you can top it up every now and then. The next part is the hard part. Seriously who would have know how tricky it is to fill a beanbag. My first suggestion is to do this with someone else, a friend, sibling, parent or child (not too little as the beans are a choking hazard.) So first up get the inner bag and open the zip around 30cm wide and get your friend to hold the bag up with the opening towards you.
Secondly get your first bag of beans and snip a small opening in the corner of the bag. This way you have a small opening in the corner which you can control as those beans like to escape quickly. Then you can tip the beans into the bigger bag. To make the beans go in more quickly you can close the zip of the inner bag so that it is closer around the beans (an less fall out) and then make the opening in the bag of beans bigger so they can flow out more quickly. While you are putting the first bag or two in you can do it very quickly as there is lots of room in the bag and your friend can hold it up so no beans spill. You will find as the bag fills up you have to be more careful as the beans can go everywhere, keep the opening small so you can control the flow. Once all in zip it up, pop on the cover and voila!
Beanbags have been popular since in the 1960s. It continued to be loved because of the many benefits that it can provide to whoever will sit on it. If comfort is what you want, then this is what you will need. Beanbag is very useful when you get home tired and stressed out from work. You can just sit on it and be relaxed. This is also ideal for small and cramp places, making it perfect for dorms and apartments. Furthermore, it is not as expensive as you may think and it can serve both as a decor as well as a chair which makes it appropriate to have if you are considering buying new home furniture or if you plan to move into a new place.
