  • I love microfiber... it cleans very easily...

    Water/soap Or a carpet shampooer with the hand attachments. ( may not work on red's/purples )

  • I have a micro fiber couch. If water is spilled on it and is allowed to dry it forms a ring from where it spread. I have a Bissell Little Green Machine and it makes my couches look like new every time. I have three dogs and use my machine about every two weeks. It even took out a set in red wine stain. Look it up and hopefully it will work for you. I paid $80 for the machine and the cleaner is like $10 bucks and will last me around 6-8 weeks.

  • Also I forgot to add that my couches are beige. Your stains might show up dark because your couch is dark.

  • I have a brown micro fiber couch that my in laws bought us for Christmas because we need a new one and they the micro fiber would be easy to clean will they were wrong. I clean mind almost everyday because my son is always spilling something and it's leaves dry stain on the couch. I use warm soap and water dip a sponge into the water and wipe down my couch. This is the only way I can get my couch clean but I will never buy this kind of couch again.

  • Try Windex... seriously. My sister has a white microfiber (not smart considering she has a toddler and a baby, and all of my kids- we visit often - are messy boys) and she cleans it w/ windex. Mine's a brown microfiber but I use the foaming resolve.
