Description: Microfiber couches look like suede, but the fabric is actually made of polyester and nylon fibers 100 times thinner than a human hair. Cleaning this space-age material can be a bit tricky, because ...
The tight knit of densely packed microfibers helps keep dirt and allergens from penetrating the fabric, but that doesn't mean you don't need to vacuum microfiber furniture regularly. Keep your microfiber couch looking good with weekly vacuuming -- you can't grind in dirt that isn't there. Use a bristled upholstery attachment to remove dirt and brush the nap of the microfiber at the same time, which helps keep it feeling soft. If you prefer to brush microfiber on the days you don't vacuum, use a soft, nylon-bristled scrub brush.
Although microfiber is designed to repel water, tending to spills quickly helps prevent telltale watermarks from forming. Blot liquid from your microfiber couch with a plain white cloth, pressing the cloth down and lifting straight up rather than rubbing. To get rid of stains and watermarks, fill a spray bottle with rubbing alcohol, spritz the stain lightly and rub with a white or natural-colored sponge. Allow the alcohol to air dry or speed up the process with a blow dryer on the cool setting. After drying, brush the spot with a dry, nylon-bristled scrub brush.
