From everyday messes to the tougher long-term stains, both can be eliminated with the following easy cleaning steps!

 

Spot Cleaning for Everyday Messes

1. Before spot cleaning, blot up liquids on the surface with a clean, soft towel and brush off any loose dirt.

2. Prepare a cleaning solution of 1/4 tsp mild enzyme detergent, such as standard dishwashing liquid, per 1 cup of lukewarm water.

3. Apply the cleaning solution using a misting spray bottle.

4. Work the solution into the affected area by lightly scrubbing the area with a sponge or soft bristle brush. Make sure to work from the outside of the stain inward so as not to spread the stain, and rinse your sponge or brush frequently.

5. Allow cleaning solution to soak into the fabric.

6. Rinse thoroughly to remove all soap residues, as residues will attract dirt—blot excess moisture with a clean, soft towel or sponge.

7. Repeat steps 3-6 as needed.

8. Allow fabric to air dry.

 

Spot Cleaning w/ Bleach Solution for Stubborn or Excessive Stains

1. Remove any loose debris and blot the stain.

2. Prepare a bleach-based cleaning solution: Bleach should be diluted with water on a 1:4 ratio.

3. Apply the bleach-based cleaning solution using a misting spray bottle and allow for the solution to soak into the fabric.

4. Work the solution into the affected area by lightly scrubbing the area with a sponge or soft bristle brush. Make sure to work from the outside of the stain inward so as not to spread the stain, and rinse your sponge or brush frequently.

5. Blot and thoroughly rinse the fabric with water until the stain is cleaned. *Make sure that all bleach is rinsed off of the surface of the fabric*

6. Allow fabric to air dry.
