Vacuum clean your upholstered furniture regularly with the furniture nozzle of your vaccum cleaner. Pay special attention to edges and pipings.
In addion, you should wipe your upholstered furniture several times a year with a moist cloth and a solution of lukewarm water and mild detergent. Finally, rinse the whole area thoroughly with plenty of clean water to remove residues of the detergent from the fabric.
Removeable covers and cushion covers can be washed at 30° in the washing machine set at a delicates cycle using a mild detergent. The washing machine should not be loaded to full capacity.
The addition of a commercial stain removal to the washing powder can be very useful, especially when washing light-coloured fabrics. The spin cycle should not be set at more than 800 RPM.
Normal, grease and protein-based stains, e.g. red wine, ketchup, fruit juice, coffee, milk, chocolate etc.:
Use a mild detergent dissolved in warm water. For light-coloured covers a conventional stain remover can be added. Wash the stain including a large area surrounding it with a generous amount of water.
Dried out, encrusted and sticky stains should be soaked before washing out the stain. Do not try to pull off encrusted soiling. This could damage the pile!
Remove any soap with plenty of clean water. Rub dry with a clean cloth, and for best results, allow the cover to dry overnight at room temperature.
