DIY Microfiber cleanerCouches can get pretty dirty in a fairly short amount of time. Especially when you have pets or a toddler who can’t keep his sticky hands off anything. While ideally I’d like to have my microfiber couches cleaned professionally once a month, it’s just not practical or realistic. Luckily, I came across a  recipe using rubbing alcohol and it truly works wonders – and nicely on stains!DIY Microfiber Cleaner Ingredients

You’ll need only four simple things:

  • A light colored rag (so the color won’t rub off on your couch)
  • A white bristled scrub brush (same reasoning, you wouldn’t want to use a pink scrub brush and have pink marks replace stains)
  • Rubbing Alcohol
  • Spray Bottle for Rubbing Alcohol
First, saturate the spots on your microfiber furniture using the spray bottle filled with rubbing alcohol.

If you need to, use more than one rag. DIY Microfiber CleanerNext, allow the areas to try then rub the areas you cleaned with a scrub brush to soften the area and put the fluff back into the microfiber. If you have microfiber furniture that is really dirty, you may need to repeat the process several times. I only had to clean it once and got great results.

Pretty easy, right? This is hands down, one of my new favorite cleaning tricks.

  1. I have the same spotty issues on my microfiber sofas/chair and the best thing I have found is 1/2c borax 1cup vinegar pour in your steam cleaner with really hot water and steam clean away. No smell and super simple.
