  • I have always used Dawn dishwashing detergent that has bleach in it and a toothbrush to get stains out of all types of fabric. However, you should always test a hidden area to make sure it won't damage the fabric/color.

  • Try hydrogen peroxide or an oxy-clean paste.

  • I agree with both answers given. Actually, I have used peroxide. I cannot use oxy-clean on anything. It seems to leave a new stain when I do. Someone told me it is because I have well water and I don't know if that is true or not but I just cannot use it.

  • Try using resolve carpet cleaner. It worked for me. Also check to see if the cloth unzips from the cushion. If it does, throw it in the washer.

  • I've scrubbed them with palmolive dish detergent and then sprayed with hydrogen peroxide and scrubbed with a toothbrush. It def made the stains alot lighter and less noticeable. I am doing a second round of it today and see if that helps thank u all :)
