How to Clean Your Microfiber Sofa According To Experts?

Microfiber is a very durable material that is used for furniture, towels, cloths, and even clothes. It also holds colour and is super soft to the touch. This makes it the perfect fabric for a sofa – and if you happen to own a microfiber couch you are probably wondering how to clean it properly.

In case you are wondering, I also have a microfiber sofa. In fact, I bought it a few weeks ago and because I had no idea how to clean it without damaging it, I had to reach out to my friends and ask them how to proceed with the cleaning. Thankfully, their cleaning experts shared exactly how to do it – and today, I want to pass down my knowledge to you too!

How to Clean Your Microfiber Sofa According To Experts?

But before we get to the cleaning part, we have to discuss one thing – you need to clean up spills as fast as possible. The second you spill something, start blotting it with a paper towel and do everything possible to remove the stain. The longer you wait, the harder it will be to clean up.

But if you did wait too long and now you have a huge stain on your sofa, start with checking the care instructions for the upholstery. Some materials should not be treated with water.

In general, the most important advice the cleaners gave me is to test any cleaning method I try on a small hidden area of the sofa so if any issues do occur, I wouldn’t have ruined the entire couch.

They did give me one recipe for a natural stain remover which contains two cups of distilled water and two tablespoons of clear dish soap. Dip a sponge in the mixture, squeeze the excess moisture and start treating the affected area.

Once you do that, you have to sort of rinse the surface in order to completely remove the soapy water. Get a clean sponge, dampen it in distilled water, and wipe the area you treated.

And once you have done this, the last step is to dry the surface – either let it air-dry and open all windows in the room or use your blow dryer to speed up the process.
