How can I safely clean a poo stain off the back of the couch? I'm washing the coushin cover now but there's a spot on the back of the couch I'd like to clean off. Any suggestions?

  • Folex carpet stain remover. Works on furniture too.

  • baking soda if the cover is already wet just mix a bit to make a paste and let it sit for at least half hour then continue cleaning.

  • Myabe Resolve? They have a spray for items that can't go into the wash...

  • Go with baking soda or borax at first, to absorb moisture, then brush that off and use an upholstery cleaner that says it's for "pet stains."

  • remove whatever poo you can 1st, then use a foamy carpet cleaner and see if you can vacuum the rest off...try not to rub it into your couch...also check the tags on your couch to see if they recommend anything...some microfiber couches are pre-treated and only require a damp cloth to clean, you might stain your couch if you use anything else
