If you have a microfiber couch you know one of the best things is how easy it is to clean! Unfortunately though, water mark stains are tougher than expected to remove (and they can come from all sorts of things - babies, dogs, spills...you name it). Water marks don't have to stay around forever though, Sarah from www.diyjustcuz.com shares how she removes these pesky stains for good.

Finally, to remove every last ounce of dirt and water, use the magic tool...BABY WIPES. Completely scrub and soak the couches with the baby wipes and before you know it, all the water stains will completely vanish! It's that simple.
REMEMBER: Rubbing alcohol for dirt, wipes for water stains!

    I have a beautiful, old WHITE brocade sofa. Do you know whether the alcohol will get teenaged boy & cat dirt out? I'm going to try it on a spot that won't show. Just wonder if you have any info.

      My friend used vinegar on mine after I gave her the set. It came out brand new. Vinegar in a spray bottle and a scrubby brush.

    Not sure what my sofa is covered with. I have washed the cushion covers in the washing machine on cold with some success. Should I try the alcohol/baby wipes on the fixed arms?

    Trying on my beige micro fabric chaise right now.....would be better with good ventilation but it is cold in Winnipeg! I am trying it on cat drool, but I'm finding my baby wipes aren't overly wet so I'm using 2 at a time. I think I need to be patient and let it dry cause I'm driving myself crazy right now.
