Cleaning Cloth Upholstery

Here is a recipe for a good home made spotter for cloth upholstery.

Mix ľ cup of laundry soap with warm water if you use a mixer or a whisk you can mix to a froth and use the foam as your spotter. Apply with a clean cloth or sponge, tamp or blot the stain as the stain breaks down into the foam remove with a kitchen scraper. Rinse by using cool water and blotting with a dry white towel. Always test a small area on and unseen spot on the upholstery first to be sure there are no adverse affects.

If you have a fresh stain always blot with a clean white towel first to absorb as much of the spill before having to put out the cleaning supplies. Often immediate blotting with remove much if not all of the spill.

Cleaning vinyl or cloth upholstery is fairly simple. You can clean most kinds of sofa fabric with a general upholstery cleaner. However, if you have never done it before then I would recommend you to get it done by taking help of professional carpet cleaners.

Ouch..... when my customers tell me they did that.... I tell them why they should NOT use soap and give them the same cleaning agent we use.
Soaps are oil based and oil never drys, thus resoiling. However you are right when you say to rinse the area, but most people do not bother to go that far. It is easier to just give them the simple workable product that takes much less work.

Thanks guys for sharing and Thanks jim jenson for underling that it is very important to rinse the area, because of the oil that is present in every soap.
