Preparing the Solvent-based Concussion
You will be glad to know it is easier to make a solvent-based solution. All you need is a chemical known as Isopropanol Alcohol. It is rather commonly known as Rubbing Alcohol. A 70% solution of it will do just the trick for you.
After gathering the key ingredient all you need to do is to pour it into a spray bottle and you’re done! You can use it to easily clean that dirty microfiber couch of yours.
How to clean
before you start cleaning make sure to round up the following equipment
- A microfiber clothe
- Cleaning solution
- A soft bristle brush (Toothbrush will do)
- A vacuum cleaner
Before you get on with the concussions you have prepared, try to pour some liquid in an unnoticeable place on your couch. Look for any colour change in the fabric. If there is no such change, you are good to go.
Start by using your vacuum cleaner to get rid of small dirt or stuffs first from the couch surface. Then spray the solution and scrub with the cloth as you move. You can use the soft bristle brush to clean some hard to reach spots.
Your precious couch is very prone to get dirty as you use it over time. You will also find signs of aging on the surfaces. Though it may be easy to clean, you will need to take care of the couch as you use it. Try to maintain routine taking care of your beloved furniture and it will surely serve you for a long long time.
