My lovely son smeared yogurt all over the cushions of the couch. Can I take the covers off an put them in the washer/dryer or will they be ruined? He also got yogurt on a non removable surface of the couch. How do I clean that?

The covers should have instructions on how to wash them.  Depending on the material, I would machine wash but hang to dry.  What is the nonremovable surface?  If it's fabric you could use some general foaming fabric cleaner.

your best bet is to use something like dawn dish detergent on a cloth with cool water. wring out the cloth you dont want to soak the spots. Also like previous post.er said read label on cushions. Then make child sit at table with food

I didn't even think of that, thanks. The nonremovable part is where your head goes... Thanks again

Before I had leather we had suede couches and I would just throw them in the washer and dryer and spot clean the rest of it with soap and water and a soft brush
