Because dust and dirt cause fabric to wear faster, we recommend vacuuming regularly with an upholstery attachment. Loose back and seat cushions should be reversed and fluffed regularly to prevent settling of cushion fills, excessive wrinkling, and insure proper fabric wear. An annual professional cleaning will keep your upholstered furniture looking at its best. Maintenance requires promptly treating spots and stains and should include routine, on-going care which reduces soil build-up on a fabric's surface. Do not rub or brush excessively, or you may cause fuzzing.

Apply a light mist of the bleach solution using a spray bottle. Allow the solution to soak into the fabric for 15 minutes. Work the solution into the affected area by lightly scrubbing the area with a sponge or soft bristle brush. Make sure to work from the outside of the stain inward so as not to spread the stain and rinse your sponge or brush frequently. Blot and thoroughly rinse fabric with water until the stain is cleaned, ensuring that all bleach is rinsed off the surface of the fabric. Allow fabric to air dry.
