How to Clean Stains on a Microfiber Couch
Spills on microfiber are problematic because the material is typically 80 percent polyester, a plastic that absorbs stains much like Tupperware soaks up tomato sauce. Yet all is not lost: Grab a can of foaming shaving cream (gel won't work). It has two stain fighters: denatured and rubbing alcohol. And, unlike liquid cleaners, its thick consistency will keep the spot from spreading while you remove it. Dab it on the area, let it sit for 10 minutes, then blot with a dry cloth. Repeat a second time if needed; usually once or twice will do the trick.
