In case of spills, make sure to address it right away in order to prevent stains from setting in. You can use an ordinary stain removal solution for as long as it is safe to use on the type of fabric that you have on your cushion. If you use a bleaching solution, check that it is non-chlorinated so that it won't cause any unsightly discoloration on your cushions.
One of the more popular materials used in papasan chairs nowadays is steel, most likely because of its very modern look. Steel chairs can also last longer than those that are made of rattan, which can rot over the years if exposed to the elements or not taken of properly. However, steel chairs are not as lightweight as the original rattan version, and they are considerably more expensive as well.
Stain the base a different color. Most traditional papasan chairs are made of rattan and are treated with clear lacquer so that the light brown color of the rattan shows through. You can considerably change the appearance of your chair by re-staining it with a darker shade like mahogany or even black. This will not only make the chair look new but give it a more elegant and sophisticated look as well. Painting over the rattan base is not usually recommended but it can work if you are planning to move the chair to your kid's bedroom or the playroom, in which case a brighter color could certainly be more fitting.
Make a new slipcover for the cushion. By changing the color, print or fabric of the cushion of your papasan chair, you can easily make it look like a completely different chair from the one that you had been using all these decades. An easy way to do this is by making a new slipcover for the cushion. The options are practically endless because you have all the fabrics in the world to choose from. While you're at it, you may also want to make several extra slipcovers so that you can change the look of your chair as the seasons change, for instance.
