Yes I know, it’s Wednesday. I haven’t lost complete track of days yet (or have I? calendars are brilliant inventions!). I spent Monday and Tuesday morning testing out different cleaners on our Microfiber couch, so I could bring you this post. It took longer than I expected, but I got it done, and I’m here to let you in on some awesome tips!
If your kids are like normal kids, then your furniture probably starts to look something like this before you can even blink
I can’t even believe looking at these pictures that I actually let it get this bad, and that I would actually have company over sitting on these! ahhh, bad housekeeper over here. Well I finally saw past my kids, and realized what had become of my sitting area. So off to work I went. I started with some cleaners I had in my cupboard.
EcoFresh Deodorizing Cleaner. It didn’t seem to be doing much. So I pulled out my – 1 time purchase from a door to door salesman – Original Lavender Advanage The Wonder Cleaner Super Concentrated. The claim was that it gets grease stains out like magic! Too bad it doesn’t take pen stains out of microfiber, because that would be a wonder. Admittedly, it did lighten the pen, it just didn’t come all the way out.
My next method of attack was removing the covers from the seat cushions. I threw the covers in the wash on Heavy soiled, high spin, warm water. YES! Ok, again the pen didn’t come out completely, but everything else did, and they look so much better!
Here is my #1 tip for Microfiber furniture – Buy pieces that have a zipper cover. I wish the back cushions were removable for the same reason, but I guess I’ll just have to spot clean them.

do you have any tips for getting a 10+ year head stain out of a regular couch… we got ours passed down from my in-laws… needless to say you can tell where my MIL sat lol!!! Our little green bissell spot cleaner didn't do the trick either… maybe i should do it a couple times.
