Care and cleaning
of upholstery fabrics.
General: It is easiest to get rid of spots and stains in textile upholstery immediately after they have been made. For regular upholstery care use a soft bristled brush or upholstery nozzle vacuum. Tougher dirt can be rubbed away with a damp chamois leather. But be careful with linen or silk upholstery. It may be better to use the services of a professional cleaning firm if necessary.
Removing stains: First rub with a soft white cloth which has been soaked in a cleaning agent or stain remover to check that the fabric has the right color and that the pile has not changed in any hidden parts of the upholstery. Check naturally dyed upholstery in the same way. Clean damp patches by dabbing with an absorbent cloth or paper. Afterwards treat any remaining marks with diluted carpet or upholstery shampoo. Never apply cleaning agents directly to the cover. Apply the agent to a white cloth. Then use the dampened cloth to remove the stain, starting from the edge and working your way into the middle.
Important: If you rub or scour too hard you could easily damage the pile.
