Upholstery should be cleaned frequently to avoid soiling, otherwise may expect a costly replacement. There are lots of products, such as “Rug Doctor”, not only to clean the carpets, but to clean and refresh the grimy upholstery. We use them according to the instruction stated on the packaging. But sometimes you need to take care of the upholstery different way.

Corduroy, velvet upholstery - wipe it using denaturated spirits or water with ammonia. In any case, must necessarily be careful not to introduce excessive moisture to the interior furniture. Cleaning velvet, be sure to perform the operation three times: for the first time - in accordance with the direction of the hair, the second time - the hair and the third - with the hair.

Mixed fabric upholstery (with man-made fibers) can be cleaned with warm bran. Heated in oven wheat bran should be spill out on the surface of the furniture and wipe by hand, lightly pressing on dirtier areas. Leave them for 10-15 min. and clean it using a vacuum cleaner or a small broom.

Old silk upholstery is very soft, such as embroidery, not suitable for cleaning, You can only slightly dust dirty spots.
