When Jake and I got married we bought a microfiber couch for screaming deal.
I remember sitting in the furniture section at a local store and raving to Jake how great microfiber would hold up with kids.
Ummm yeah…. apparently I was clueless about microfiber at the time.
Don’t get me wrong, the couch is in great shape, but microfiber (at least light tan microfiber) shows stains and water marks like nobodies business.
Case in point:
(And please don’t judge! Last week we had the stomach flu and sippy cups and popsicles attacked the couch.)
Yeah that’s nasty.
So I found a great how-to on Pinterest and thought I’d give it a try.
What you’ll need
Make sure you get a WHITE sponge and WHITE bristle brush so that there is no accidental color transfer onto the couch when you are scrubbing.
(I used a light brown sponge because that’s what we had on hand and it matched to color of our sofa; so you could go that route as well. )
Pour the rubbing alcohol in the spray bottle and SATURATE the stained area.
I know this seems counterintuitive, but rubbing alcohol evaporates much faster than water so it won’t leave a water mark.
