SPILLS ON UPHOLSTERY

When catching up over wine and spilling the details results in spills on the couch, don't fret! Save yourself from spending money on new furniture by spot treating your way back to clean.

Note, when cleaning upholstery for the first time, we always recommend testing an inconspicuous area before cleaning fully.

Do not continue cleaning if: 
• The water or product leaves a mark or creates discoloration 
• The treated area is cleaner and brighter than the rest of the fabric 
• The fabric ripples or wrinkles

If you see any of the above reactions, stop spot treating. If the item requires further cleaning, have a professional clean the item in-home.

Gather These Tools: 

Stain Solution, Stain Brush or Scrub Brush, Lint-Free Cleaning Cloths

Wet a Lint-Free Cleaning Cloth with warm water and gently blot the affected area until the stain and all suds disappear. Repeat steps 1 and 2 as necessary.

STEP 3:

When the stain is no longer visible, thoroughly blot with a clean, dry Lint-Free Cleaning Cloth.
