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.

Does anyone know a good DIY cleaner for a great chair, but needs cleaning badly? The upholstery is a brushed fabric. Thanks.

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