Step 1: Vacuum Remove the cushions and vacuum everything thoroughly with the upholstery attachment to remove loose dust, dirt, hair, and food particles. Once weekly is recommended. Step 2: Dust Dust non-upholstered parts of the couch, including frames and legs, with a soft cloth. Step 3: Remove stains Read the label on the couch to get fabric descriptions and cleaning instructions. Pre-treat stains with mild dish soap and a damp cloth. Then apply upholstery stain remover. Tip Always test cleansers on a small, hidden area of the couch. Allow it to dry and look for any marks before continuing.
