UPHOLSTERY CARE – UPHOLSTERED FURNITURE HINTS

  • Upholstery care tip 1. Blot with a white terry cloth towel while spill is fresh, a dried spill is much harder to remove.
  • Upholstery care hint 2. Identify your cleaning code on the fabric, some fabrics do not come with a cleaning tag so when in doubt call Son Bright.
  • Upholstery care hint 3. Always follow the directions on the cleaning agent.
  • Upholstery care hint 4. Use distilled water with the cleaner if the tag says w/ or ws.
  • Upholstery care hint 5. Always check for color fastness before you actually attempt cleaning.
  • Upholstery care hint 6. Keep a small spill small! Work lightly, blotting from the center to the edges.
  • Upholstery care hint 7. Speed dry using hair dryer on low heat! Again we repeat LOW HEAT! Here are some common cleaning codes:
    • w- w/s: Clean with water based cleaner.
    • s: Spot clean with a solvent cleaner no water!
    • ws: Clean with foam from a water based detergent.
    • x: Dry clean only!
