My couch is micro suede and my daughter has spit up smashed crackers on it and spilt milk.

How do you clean it? it says use a dry cloth but thats not going to do anything? I need some type of liquid I can scrub it with so get that crap out. Does anyone know anything I can use?

micro fiber sofas are the easiest thing in the world to clean, trust me. they are designed to take a beating and come back, thats why they're so damn awesome! make sure your sofa is vaccumed and then get some furnature cleaner, anything basic will do. it wont damage your sofa because the micro fiber has a tendancy to bounce back. and it is so resiliant to staining. make sure you smooth it down to dry though, or else it will dry with the fibers in the opposite direction.

This is how I clean mine.  I do this about every other week.

I fill a bucket with warm water and one cap full of woolite. Mix that up and use a white washcloth wring the water/woolite  out well and  scrub the couch with it.

On stubborn stains I used the Resolve multi fabric spray.

When we bought our microsuede furniture,the salesman told me to spot clean with Windex, but if it needed a deep cleaning, to make a diluted bacth of Windex and put it in one of those little mini steam cleaners and do that, or even some rug cleaner that's not abrasive or too potent(you could probably dilute that, too)

We were told to use the Blue Coral car uphosltery cleaner on our couch.  It works great...even got out red wine!  I do recommend that you test a small spot on the back first...with anything you choose to use...just to make sure it doesn't discolor the fabric.  Good luck!

That is what we also use.  I LOVE our couch that we bought because the stains come out so easily...

I use baby wipes to spot clean on my microsuede couches. They're gentle enough, and they get rid of the stain!

i have that for my couch and dining room chairs, it cleans great with my bissel.  look underneath and on a tag there should be a cleaning code number or letter.  in a bissel handbook it tells you how to clean that fabric.  i use the attachments and have removed all the food that my son and dh have left behind lol.   but!!! dont take our word for it and ruin your couch and then post how we are to blame haha.  seriously check for that cleaning code.
