How to wash my sofa? Any good product I can use? Answered

Got some dirty spots on my sofa. Any one knows how to wash them off?

What kind of upholstery is it? Leather, plastic or cloth? If it is a cloth material you can use a steamer or a carpet cleaning machine with furniture attachment after it is pretreated with cleaning fabric foam.

Thank you all, steamer worked well!

I would try using oxyclean laundry detergent. It works to clean baseball caps that nothing else will clean. Try it on a test location like mpilch suggests to be sure it doesnt discolor the fabric.

It depends upon the spots; what are they?



We've used a product called Kids and Pets, which I've found at Wal-Mart, and it works quite well and doesn't have a harsh chemically scent.

I like Scotchgard Fabric and Upholstery Cleaner. I use it in the house and the car. Its like a dry foam that you apply, rub in and then vacuum out. It cleans really well and also leaves behind a protectant to repel stains in the future. 

I've used Resolve carpet clear with great results. But they also offer a multi fabric cleaner. Just follow the direction on the back for upholstery. Test it on a location of the coach that isn't seen much to make sure it doesn't discolor the fabric.
