Upholstery Fabric: Preventing Stains
Always keep an eye out for drinks and liquids that are in use near your upholstery. In the instance that a liquid is spilled on your couch or recliner, it is not the end of the world. There are precautions you can take to either remove the stain immediately or mitigate it from becoming a much worse situation. To clean up a stain on your upholstery, take a white cloth towel and begin drying the spot. Always remember to use a dabbing motion, never rub or scrub the towel side-to-side (you should be only pressing firmly yet gently on the spot and releasing repeatedly.), exchanging the towel as necessary. Once you have soaked up all of the excess liquid, take a moist white towel and, again with a dabbing motion, begin blotting the area. Now replace the towel with a dry one and start dabbing the wet spot, drying it back up. It is crucial that you remember not to scrub or rub the cloth; doing so will result in a stain.
