Upholstery Cleaner

ALWAYS make sure your sofa is washable before doing this. It should say on the label. If it has no label then do a test in an unseen area. Check after a couple of hours for streaking or bleeding.

You need TWO buckets.

In the first mix:

1/2 C ammonia
1/2 C cleaning solvent (I use Afta - http://tinyurl.com/27cero )
1/2 C Spic & Span
1/2 gallon lukewarm water

In the second mix:

1 C white vinegar
1 gallon lukewarm water.

Using an old towel scrub upholstery with cleaning solvent solution, then rinse with another towel dipped in vinegar and water. Use a third towel to wipe as dry as possible.

Before you do this remove the cushion covers if they are removable. Wash them with warm water on a gentle cycle. Add 1/4 C vinegar to the rinse water to brighten the fabric. Put cushion covers back on WHILE THEY ARE STILL WET. Zip them up and pat them into shape. Let them dry standing on end against the couch. Stains can be removed as with other laundry stains.
