Microsuede, also called microfiber, is a synthetic material created from tiny fibers that are woven together to create a surface that closely resembles suede. Microsuede is a soft material and is commonly used in furniture and home accessories due to its durable nature. While microsuede is largely considered stain resistant, it is not stain proof. Cleaning a stain out of a microsuede sofa is possible with household supplies available at most grocery and hardware stores.
Things You'll Need
- Soft cloth(s)
- Rubbing alcohol
- Soft brush
Blot up the spilled substance as quickly as possible. Do not rub or scrub at the surface, since this will force the stain further into the fabric.
Apply a small amount of rubbing alcohol to a clean, soft cloth and blot the stain. Do not rub the stain.
Allow the area to dry completely.
Repeat Step 2 if the stain remains. Continue to alternate Steps 2 and 3 until the stain is gone.
Gently brush the fabric with a soft toothbrush to restore the fabric once the stain has been removed. This will help restore the soft nature of the microsuede.
