Oxi Clean really works great. Add to line 1 per 16 ozs of water, for a cleaning vac or shampoo vac. Apply only enough solution to saturate chair. Allow solution to stand 1 - 5 minutes. Only do small areas at a time as to not let the chair become too wet. Do not allow solution to dry on fabric. Rinse with clean water.

See the back of the Oxi Clean container for more information.

I want to shampoo my recliner but do not want to load it up with soap. I have read most of the articles about carpet shampoos and wonder if the same recipes will work for my recliner. Thanks for any suggestions.

I use the original Barasol in the red can. Spray it on heavy and spread it around and let sit for about 3 to 5 minutes. Take a white damp rag and rub off the foam. Great and you will love it.

I put a cup of white vinegar in the water. Don't use baking soda.
