Professional Cleaners

  • Prepare a solution of 1 cup of bleach and ¼ cup mild soap to one gallon of water.

Seam-To-Seam Cleaning

  • When cleaning upholstered pieces, clean the entire surface area of the fabric from seam to seam, instead of rubbing the fabric in a circular motion on the stain.

  • This method, along with an extractor, may be required in order to avoid water rings and stains.

Oil-Based Stains

  • Immediately apply an absorbent such as corn starch directly on the oil-based stain.

  • Let sit for 10 minutes and remove the excess using a straight edge or ruler. This helps remove the stain and prevents it from being pressed into the fabric.

  • Proceed with the normal cleaning process.
