I've had a hard time keeping my microfiber couch clean with four kids. Two of which are under the age of two. They drool, spit up, and suck on the cushions. One day my baby threw up on it after drinking grape juice and I thought the couch was ruined. My husband grabbed Shout laundry stain remover and it worked great! I used it to clean the rest of the couch. It hasn't looked this good since the day we bought it. I would test in an inconspicuous place first though just in case.

I am 63 years old and have always used old sheets to cover my couch. This saved my couch a many a time when the children were babies. I cover it when the grandchildren come over. I have gone through at least 3 or 4 couches but they always looked good going out the door. Sheets won't stop everything but they will stop a great deal and when company company comes take them off. Just some advice from a grandmother who has been there done that.
The thing to do now that your couch is really clean is to Scotch Guard it. I buy it at Walmart. I Scotch Guard all fabrics I can in my house including my microfiber couch, seats in my new car, cushions on the chairs of my kitchen table, and even a cream colored comforter in the back bedroom where my grandchildren watch TV when they are here.
It works wonders and stains will just come right off...including dark red salad dressing that I didn't notice for a few days and it had dried. I just peeled it off with my fingernail. Try it, you will be amazed.
Absolutely amazing, I purchased a used microfiber (light green) 2 piece sectional. One side of the sofa looks like no one has ever set on it. However, the other side appeared to be dirty but I had it professionally cleaned and it turns out it was dye transferred from clothing.
I heard about using Shout. So, I gave it a try. Just spray, let it sit 3 to 5 minutes and lightly brush with vacuum brush and warm water. Use a towel to wipe and blot out dye. The sofa looks new! Thanks to Shout!
