If you have any questions about the type of detergent to use, check the care information for the fabric type or contact the manufacturer.

Before using any cleaner, test it on an inconspicuous area of the sofa to make sure the fabric is not discolored or damaged. If there are no problems, dampen a cloth with the solution and gently rub the stain. After cleaning the stain, use another clean, damp cloth to remove any excess foam.
