How To Clean Micro-Fiber Furniture

We were so excited when we purchased our first kitchen table. We moved in together when we were 17 and of course started off with hand-me-downs and 2nd hand furniture that wasn't even close to matching. So when we seen our new kitchen table I instantly fell in love and had to have it. The only down fall, micro-fiber seats. I was always told it is was hard to maintain, clean, and keep stain free but I didn't care. We don't have kids so I figured we wouldn't have much problems and we bought the table. We went for almost a year without any problems. Then one day my sister innocently sat at the table and when she got up there was a blue dye stain on the seat from her brand new blue about heart attack central! I literally freaked out. So I went on a search for the perfect cleaner for micro-fiber and this is what I found....use alcohol  No not the kind that you down on a weekend out but the kind you use to clean boo-boos. 

After that incident the seats came so clean, I was thrilled. Then our cute little Piper (the cat) got a sinus infection and for some reason would only sit on that chair...ugh! We would remove him but that was the only place he felt comfortable. If you don't already know and have been lucky not to experience a cat sinus boogers are a huge part of it. Yes, I said cat boogers! Our poor little guy was sick and while we were waiting to get into the vet we decided to let him stay where he was comfortable. That decision resulted in this:

Oh, I cringe at the sight and I can't believe that I am sharing that picture. But hey, that's life right. The good, bad, ugly, and nasty! 

So here's what you will need:
Spray Bottle Nozzle (use one from a shorter bottle and preferably new)
White Cleaning Cloth (White Only)
Soft Bristled Scrub Brush

First you will want to screw the spray nozzle on to the alcohol bottle. Then you will want to vacuum the micro-fiber REALLY well to get all of the loose particles off the material. Next, spay the cloth with the alcohol and then use the white cloth to clean the area. Scrub it like you would any other material just not too hard. Once you get the whole surface cleaned, let it dry. You aren't done yet! After allowing the fabric to dry  use the soft white scrub brush and softly stroke over the fabric. This will give the fabric it's natural appearance back. All Done!
