Apply the shampoo to the sofa. Place the nozzle against the sofa’s fabric and hold down the trigger or button that releases the solution you poured into the tank. Keeping the button depressed, move across the surface of the sofa in a grid pattern, just as you did with the vacuum cleaner earlier. Make sure you apply the shampoo to the entire sofa. Move slowly to ensure even distribution of the shampoo.

Press the rag onto the stained portions of the couch. You don’t want to rub the stains — just to press the rag with dry cleaner on it against them. This might take a long time, but don’t get impatient and apply too much dry cleaner to the stain. This might harm the fabric. Take breaks and allow the solvent to dry from time to time for heavy stains that require a great deal of treatment. Reapply dry cleaner to the rag as necessary, but remember to show restraint.

To remove the dry cleaner from the fabric, moisten a *** clean cloth with water. It should be damp, but not soaking ***. Blot it over the stains, re-washing and wringing it out as necessary. Once you’ve finished, let the couch air dry.
Apply the cleaner to the couch. You don’t want to apply the cleaner directly to the surface of the sofa. Instead, you’ll apply it to a rag and use that to apply it to the leather. Wipe the rag over the entire sofa, making sure to **** in a grid pattern so you don’t miss anything. The rag should be damp, but not soaking ***.
Tips If you have stains on the sofa, treat them ***** with a spot cleaner. If you do not know what cleaner is recommended for your product, call either the manufacturer or the store where you bought it. As a last resort, look on the Internet for cleaners designed for sofa fabrics.

Sprinkle the entire couch with a good heap of baking soda. Baking soda helps release lurking smells and break up stains in the fabric. If you’re feeling your sofa really needs a serious clean, mix together this dry ******* carpet cleaner, and then use for covering the fabric. Allow the baking soda to sit on the couch for at least 20 minutes and up to an hour before vacuuming using a brush attachment.
2Attach the stair/upholstery nozzle, hose and solution tube to the recovery tank of the steam vacuum according to the steam vacuum’s instructions. Turn on the steam vacuum. Push the nozzle against the upholstery fabric and pull the solution trigger. Hold the trigger and slowly move the nozzle over the fabric toward you. Overlap the passes you make with the nozzle over the fabric, as this will prevent streaking in the couch fabric.

Determine the sofa fabric. Find the tag that tells you what the sofa cover is made out of. These tags usually have instructions for what cleaning products you should use on the fabric. “W” means to use a water-based detergent with a steam vacuum. “WS” means you can use either a water-based detergent with a steam vacuum or a dry-cleaning detergent. “S” means to use only a dry-cleaning detergent. “O” means the material is organic, and should be washed using cold water. “X” means to either vacuum and bristle-brush alone, or to use a professional service for shampooing.
Spot-test your detergent solution. Dip a rag into the solution and rub it on a little-seen portion of the sofa. You can use the same spot you tested the preconditioner on. Let the solution sit on the fabric for 10 minutes, then check it. Press a paper towel to the spot to see if any of the fabric’s dye comes off on it. If there’s no discoloration, move on to the next ****.

Wipe down any exposed **** surfaces. Many sofas have exposed wood or other materials, and you want to make sure you give them attention too. Find a cleaning product appropriate for the surface you want to clean. An all-purpose surface cleaner will suffice if you don’t have a surface-specific product on hand. If the spray zone is broad, spray into a paper towel and simply rub that over the surface to be cleaned. This will prevent getting ******** chemicals on your fabric.

Apply the dry-cleaner to a clean rag. Rather than applying the solution directly to the couch, you want to apply it to a rag that you’ll blot against the stained portions of the fabric. These solutions tend to be very strong, so remember that a little goes a long way. Follow the guidelines on the packaging for the specific product you purchased.

I had a large brown pet stain (8″ x 14″) on my white sofa cushion and smears on the arm. I was sure I would have to call a professional cleaner. Then I checked online for cleaning products. This one had great reviews so I tried it. It easily took off the small light stains but I had to saturate and wipe the cushion about 15 times. There was a section in the center of the stain I was sure would still be there – but it would have been faint. I could tell there would be a “water” stain at the edge of the treated area, so when I was finished, I lightly sprayed the whole cushion on that side. I put it on the porch to dry. When I looked at it in the morning, I was shocked. I couldn't see the stain at all! This product saved me hundreds of dollars and completely restored the cushion.

Buy a gentle leather cleaner. Though wiping a leather sofa down with a moist rag will **** as part of your regular cleaning routine, every once in a while, you should give it a proper cleaning. Harsh chemicals can damage and discolor the leather, so purchase a product specifically designed for leather upholstery. If you cannot find such products at the grocery store, try a larger department store like Target or Walmart. You can also buy these products easily online.

After cleaning microfiber, many people run into another problem: the fabric feels stiff to the touch after being cleaned. Luckily there’s a simple solution to this dilemma, which is to gently rub the stiff fibers with a clean, soft scrub brush, or the scrubby side of a clean sponge. This **** fluffs up the fibers of the fabric, making it soft and plush again.

Add 3 ounces of carpet/upholstery detergent and water to the clean solution tank of the steam vacuum. Spot test by dipping a cloth into the solution and rubbing it on the couch in a small, out-of-the-way area that is not easily seen. Check the spot after 10 minutes and press paper towel onto it to check for the dye of the fabric coming off onto the paper towel, which is called color bleeding. If the colors do not bleed or the fabric itself does not change color, it is safe to clean it with the steam vacuum.
