When I purchased my microfiber sofa and loveseat, the salesperson, told me to clean it as if it was plastic. In other words you can use almost anything to clean it. I have cleaned spilled wine, tea, and just plain soiled areas. I just take water and a little detergent and it drys just like new. (05/27/2008)

I have camel colored microfiber couch and loveseat. They only had a few spots but were just dingy looking. I took the cushions out and washed them on gentle cycle with mild detergent and they look great (06/05/2008)

To clean the entire couch you may want to steam clean it. Often you can buy a steam cleaner for as little as $40. Some hardware or home stores have these available for rent. I had a company come out and professionally steam my mattress and it cost me $80. Just a thought.

My son had a ink spill on my micro fiber furniture, I used the green alcohol. You can't even tell there was a ink spill. (06/23/2008)

I was looking for a way to clean our recliner chairs, went online and found this very helpful site. Someone suggested baby wipes. I have a 2 1/2 year old, so of course I have plenty of wipes in the house. The chairs are beige/light-tan and I wondered if this method would really work. Much to my surprise they worked great! I just cleaned the chairs and they look new again. Thank you for the info. (06/29/2008)

Our sectional was horribly dirty from a visit from relatives with 5 boys. My husband and I threw caution to the wind, after cleaning every inch of our brand new house, and pulled the covers off the cushions. I put them in washing machine on delicate with warm water and Woolite. I then put the covers into the dryer for 5-10 minutes and put them back onto the cushions. We could not be happier.

It worked great! I highly recommend this method, if your microfiber furniture needs a good cleaning. We have a huge sectional so, obviously we had to do a few covers at a time. It looks great, completely clean and no sore body parts from doing it by hand. (07/01/2008)

Buttercup left some nasty paw prints on my light brown couch. Scrubbing them off left water rings all over. I diluted carpet cleaner with warm water and scrubbed the entire cushion. The paw prints and water rings disappeared. No need to use a blow dryer. (07/04/2008)

Another product to help remove ink stains etc. is Lysol spray. The salesman where I purchased my sofa took a ball point pen and scribbled on a sofa. He then took the can of Lysol spray to the marks and wiped them with a paper towel. It took it right off. When I got home I used the Lysol on several old stains and it removed them completely. I noticed some people have said to steam clean and then others say don't steam clean, so what is the answer yes or no to steam? Lots of great ideas! (10/25/2008)
