Microfiber is a material made of tightly woven synthetic fibers. The density of microfiber material makes it resistant to stains. Stain resistance, along with affordability and attractiveness make microfiber a desirable material for furniture coverings and cleaning cloths. If you happen to get an ink stain on microfiber, you may wonder if you have ruined the material. You can remove most ink stains from microfiber if you use the proper cleaning approach.

Furniture Coverings

Dampen a clean cloth with water.

Squirt a few drops of liquid dish soap onto the damp cloth.

Scrub the ink stain with the cloth.

Dampen another cloth with water and use it to wipe the cleaned area free of any soap residue.

Allow the area to air dry.

Create a paste from 1 tbsp. of powdered oxygenated cleaner and 1 tsp. of water. Rub this paste into the area if the ink is still present. Wipe with a damp cloth and air dry.

Microfiber Cloths

Spot treat the ink stain with a pre-wash stain remover and let the material sit for 10 minutes.

Launder the microfiber in cool or warm water (not hot).

Check to make sure the stain has disappeared before drying. Do not add other clothing to the dryer, as the microfiber may pick up lint from other fabrics.
