Is there instructions on them? If not try a dry cleaner to be safe. (02/07/2006)
Is this a microfiber slip cover or are you referring to the cushion covers that actually are on the couch? If these are not slipcovers, then absolutely DO NOT machine wash them. They will be ruined. Follow the manufacturers suggested cleaning method for cleaning the cushions. All furniture uses a universal cleaning code such as W, WS, S, etc.. Find the code for your fabric and follow it exactly.
I have a microfiber sofa. I also had it treated before it was delivered. I just wipe the spots with a damp cloth and it works fine. (02/08/2006)
I have successfully washed sofa cushion covers in cold water and mild detergent. I stretch them into shape when I take them out of the wash and hang them to dry. Don't use the dryer. I have done this when removing cat urine that the cleaners did not get out after several tries - the odor remained. Anyway, it worked fine - it was much better than an unusable cushion. My friend with 3 children also washed her cushions after various mysterious and disgusting accidents. (02/08/2006)
I used to have a micro fiber sofa, i was instructed when I bought it/ use a damp sponge on the spot and the surrounding area. Place a clean paper towel on the spot, with a book on top. Leave it overnight. The dampness will absorb into the paper towel and the book keeps it from forming a ring around the spot due to the pressure on it while drying. It worked like a charm. The more you use this technique, the better you get at it. Good luck! (02/09/2006)
