    1Vacuum up dry messes. Crumbs and dirt should be promptly cleaned up before they have a chance to settle or get worse..
    Step2React quickly to liquid spills. Microfiber is designed to repel most liquids; if you catch a spill in time, you may be able to clean it before it has a chance to soak through the fabric. Use a soft cloth or paper towel to blot any excess moisture from your couch.
    Step3Use a gentle soap. If your couch happens to get soiled, try a mild soap such as Dove or Neutrogena to gently work the stain out. Start with the smallest amount possible, and then blot to dry.
    4Buy a microfiber cleaner. check with your manufacturer to see if they recommend a particular product to use on your couch. Mix a bit of the cleaner with water, and then wash the surface clean with a sponge.
    5Call in the professionals.

  • Our micro-fiber couch cleaned up with ONLY bottled water... we were told to never use any kind of detergent on it because it compromises the durability and stain resistance of the fabric.... That was an Ashley rep..... I've got some crap out using only bottled water, including grape juice (but I did catch it when it was wet..... I literally dabbed it up with a dry cloth and took a bottle of Ozarka water, poured it straight on the couch (soaking it) then vacuumed it out. But definitely check with the manufacturer.
