Help cleaning upholstered chair...
I have a chair which is upholstered in a crewel embroidery fabric. The thread is, of course, wool and the base is a linen/cotton combo. This chair I have gotten from my grandmother has peculiar stains which appear to have come from something leaching out of the chair under humid conditions rather than a spill.
The stains on the shair which I already own are reasonably small and not bothersome but I have just come across a matching set of chairs of the same type, with the same type of stain. This leads me to believe it is a flaw with the materials. The cushion is made of a nasty yellow foam. Do you think the foam is leaching out and causing this and how do I remove the stains.
Is it worth purchasing the set of chains to try to remove the stains?
What are your suggestions?
FYI, the chair I own says do NOT use water to clean and the chairs which I want, the stains feel stiff and starchy.
Thanks in advance! And can someone tell me how to post a photo?
