Microfiber is great until it gets stained.

First I would try to soak up the grease by transfering it to a white paper towel or rag. Just setting the towel/rag on the spot. Don't smoosh it around.

Once you have it so it doesn't bleed, then try just a few drops of plain Dawn dish soap on a clean white rag (NOT paper in this case as you are going to smoosh it around a little). Gently massage the Dawn into the stain and hopefully if it is not too intense a stain, it will wick up into the rag.

it make take several treatments.

Do you know what type of cleaning is recommended for the microfiber on your chair? There is more than one type and some cannot be cleaned with water, so you should check the labels on the underside of your chair to see if there are instructions for the type of cleaning solutions to use.


I use rubbing alcohol on a small chair that I have and it works great so maybe this would work on your chair also.

Here is a link that has some useful information about cleaning microfiber.

A few years back I bought a used dining set a the chairs were microfiber. Two of the head rests had greases from hands and heads ground into them. The Best way I have found to clean microfiber upholstery and I have a lot of it is to....

Step 1
Do a colorfast test on a small area.

Step 2
Dampen area to be cleaned with a white cloth try to wipe up as much as you can with the cloth.

Step 3
Spray with rubbing alcohol until wet try to blot/wipe up as much of dirt/grease as you can(do not scrub).

Step 4
Once you have removed as much of dirty area as you can, allow to air dry.


Step 5
Wipe again with damp clean cloth to remove any left over residue(I went over really bad headrests with my carpet spot machine).

Step 6
Once dry area will feel hard to touch, try Using a soft scrub brush to lightly brush area to soften back up.

My chairs are a very pale grey color & my couch is cream. Even with my cats and Rottweiler who love to lay on them stay looking brand new cleaning this way! GOOD LUCK!
