  • Rent a Rug Doctor steam cleaner. They have a solution for smells that you add to the water. Do it ASAP, if you let it dry on the couch it'll be harder to get out. My son had diarrhea and well, our new couch smells like it to this day!

  • Folex...sold at Walmart! $5.25 a bottle.
    Comes in a tall white spray bottle. Use just a little small spritz, a soft bristle brush (if necessary) & a WHITE towel(not to transfer dyes)
    Wipe clean.
    We have been doing this with this product in our own carpet cleaning business for many years!
    Renting a steam cleaner or service certainly is a very good idea!
    Yes, you can stem clean chenille. Just don't get the water too hot. Luke warm or cold water only!
