How to Clean a Microfiber Couch

4.3K Views
A few months back, one of our good friends got new living room furniture and was selling their old couch and recliner for almost nothing. Usually I am weird about buying pieces like this because I know firsthand the nastiness that can be embedded in the fabric. But, it was such a good deal that I was going to try to clean it and if that did not work, then I would throw a slipcover over it and be done.

Next, I spot cleaned it with rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle. I read that you should not use other cleaners on microfiber because they can leave spots. I used a microfiber rag and worked in small areas, spraying and rubbing with the rag. You could also use a scrubbing brush for stubborn stains.
