In the first part of this article we saw some ideas how to take care of microfibre furniture. Also you found out that it is best to treat a spill as soon as possible for best results. Unfortunately sometimes you will not have the opportunity to remove the spot right away. Very often this will lead to stains on your furniture. When this happens you will have to look for a cleaning product. Ikea assembly furniture specialists recommend to look at the tag on your furniture where you can find certain codes. This codes will tell you what cleaners are appropriate for your item. For example, the letter W means that you will need a water based cleaner. If your furniture has the letter “S” on its tag, you will need a solvent based cleaner. The best scenario is when you have both “S” and “W” letters on the tag. In this case you can use both cleaners. When you know which cleaner you will be using, you should check the instructions of the manufacturer since each product has it’s own specific directions. Experts from London in Ikea delivery recommend to absorb any excess liquid with a towel after treating the spot. Then let your item dry completely before using it again.
In case you do not want to spend money on cleaners, there are other options, as well. I will present you some of them, but keep in mind that their effect might be not as good as the effect which professional cleaning products will give you. That is why it is always better to try a cleaner on an inconspicuous area first. Some household products can be used successfully for various cleaning tasks. For instance, rubbing alcohol is very effective against stains and rings. The good thing about this product is that it evaporates quickly and this makes it less likely that more water rings will remain. You should pour a small amount onto a clean cloth and start blotting the spot. If you do not have a clean cloth nearby, you can use a baby wipe instead. After that dab the spot until it is just barely damp. Now, you can use a hair dryer to dry the area. Ikea pickup and delivery and assembly specialists recommend to use your hand to lightly brush the fibres in order to prevent them from becoming stiff. Once you have cleaned your furniture, you may apply a fabric protectant to protect your item from future damage. Follow the instructions of the product and let it dry thoroughly before using the microfibre furniture again.
