Ink on Microfiber Furniture

My son colored our cream microfiber couch. I heard Windex will remove ink, but how do I go about cleaning it? Scrub with a washcloth? Blot?

Always blot. Spray and blot. Safest approach to remove anything. When you see progress, you might try rubbing a spot about half the size of a fingerprint and watch results. Rubbing can grind stain, ink, etc. into fibers which are twisted into thread and woven into fabric. Think about removing a stain from the middle of a rope or piece of yarn. (02/04/2010)

  1. Test your microfiber sofa for colorfastness first by dabbing a bit of either rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer onto an inconspicuous part of your sofa.

  2. Dampen a portion of the cloth with rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer.

  3. Rub the stain with the dampened cloth, working from the outside in. When one section of your cloth becomes dark with ink, dampen another section with more rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer and continue until the ink is removed.

  4. Blot out the rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer with a dry portion of your cloth or a new cloth.

    Tips and Warnings

    You can substitute clear vodka for the rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer. The key is the alcohol, so any product containing mostly or all alcohol will do the trick so long as it's clear. If you don't work from the outside in on your ink stain, you run the risk of spreading the stain further.
