If you are not dusting, then it may create halos on your microfiber sofa. Follow these tips for effective dusting:

  • Take a dishcloth and rub the surface of the sofa to collect and remove pet hair.
  • Use soft bristle brush attachment and vacuum clean the couch.

Make a cleaning solution:

  • Mix liquid detergent or white vinegar into lukewarm water.
  • Shake it well until it makes foam when detergent is used.

Spot testing:

  • Apply the cleaning solution prepared by you on an area, which is not visible directly such as in the backside or under the armrest.
  • Leave it for a few minutes and then clean it.
If you see any colour saturation or any effect on the fabric, you should not continue and better to call a reliable company offering upholstery cleaning Melbourne. If the spot test does not show any adverse effect, then you are ready for stain cleaning. Move to the next step.

  • Take a clean cloth and damp it in the cleaning solution we made in the earlier step.
  • Clean the stain with this damped cloth in a circular manner. However, make sure it is not soaking the fabric.
