I have a micro suede beige sofa which I purchased a couple of years ago. But with two little boys it has become stained and there is even a nail polish stain on the sofa, thanks to a my two year old.

I use a windex type cleaner and a coarse wash cloth. I have used one of those "eraser" sponges to get nail polish off my leather couch -- may work on micro.
I unzipped and washed my microfiber cushion covers in the washing machine and they came out spotless.
Here are questions related to Cleaning Micro Suede Couch.
We recently bought a microsuede couch, and about a week after it was delivered, stains started appearing on it. I don't know what kind of stains they are, just darker spots on the fabric. I think they may be from milk (my daughter uses a sippy cup at times), that was spilled. The sofa cushions have slipcovers on them, and they are made of the microsuede. Are they machine washable? Or is there any way to get the dried stains out without damaging the fabric?

Milk spoils and smells so you would want to wash the slipcovers. Cold water in the sink I would guess but there is no guarantee they won't shrink. While drying you can continue to stretch them into their natural shape. Most stains come off with windex. Maybe you could try the antibacterial windex on the milk stains. I did daycare in my home for 10 years and learned that snacks and drinks had to stay in the kitchen because milk and juices do stain. Good luck!

I am having a difficult time trying to clean my 1 year old micro suede couch and love seat. I have a baby that drools on them and a little dog that likes to eat her treats on them. Whenever I clean them I seem to make a bigger mess. I am unable to remove the back cushions so I haven't even tried cleaning them. Please help. I want my pretty beige couches back.

The microfiber cloth has given the best cleaning results I've ever gotten. Whether the cloth works as well on other fabrics is still an open question. (10/20/2007)
I need something that can clean a micro suede couch. The "Stain Master Formula" I got only makes watermark stains. I also need to get the suede feel back.
