Cleaning a Microfiber Couch the Environmentally Friendly Way

664,415 Views
Having kids really puts some real wear and tear on your furniture. It wasn't too bad when Michael was a baby, we could keep the couch looking nice and clean. Once he started being mobile and using sippy cups, the couch was always a mess. Over a year ago, I had written a post called Cleaning Microfiber Furniture. It works, don't get me wrong, but the big problem with it was that you had to use rubbing alcohol. Well, I have found a more environmentally way to clean our couch.
Several months ago my sister-in-law, Meredith, had posted a before and after picture of her white couch on her Facebook page. My nephew had marked up the couch with crayons and she cleaned it with the Norwex Envirocloth. I was amazed that you couldn't see any signs of it on the couch afterwards. Meredith has been telling me about Norwex for a while now. She loved it so much that she became a consultant for them.

Here's my EnviroCloth before I used it.
Activating the EnviroCloth.
You want the cloth to be damp. Rub it back and forth over the area you want to clean. In my case, it ended up being pretty much the whole entire couch.

Check out the rest of my post to get Meredith's contact information and more information about this amazing product.

      An awesome thing that will change your cleaning and make it easier!! The best microfiber on the market which means it cleans the best and also has silver in it to keep it from stinking and having to be washed often. We even sell bath towels and washcloths. It doesn't require any cleaning product to clean surfaces, just water! Meredithstacy.norwex.biz

    I have to be honest and say I thought there was no hope for that couch... and you proved me wrong... so glad it cleaned up for you... looks so much nicer... and p.s... I hate sippy cups with furniture and carpet... they drip drip drip... we are a kitchen only family and I like it that way... but.. we are grandparents not parents...lol.. so we get it.. been there done that

      It had been two years in the making and my son has gotten so much better with the whole drinks and food on the couch. He makes sure to put his cup on a coaster now and is only 4! This cleaning was actually done a few months ago and my couch has a few spots that I need to touch up, but still looks really good.
