The Dreaded Ring

betsyhacJuly 4, 2009

Having company today and quickly cleaned up a cat yack spot on my newly recovered couch w/o checking fabric content first. Spot's gone and now there's a nice big ring which I'll have to deal with later. Fabric is 51% polyester, 30% rayon, 19% cotton and has an S cleaning code. What should I do or use? Thank you!

My bet is that the ring is there to stay if you used a water-based cleaner.

If you used water on Rayon the fabric cannot be brought back to life. Hope the spot is in a location where a pillow can be put over it.

I had a ring on my sofa for years. I rubbed it with Tide To Go stain stick and it disappeared. Good luck!

I have a few spots that cat up chucked on and wasn't cleaned up real soon, I think the stomach acid took the color out! Is rather cheap light gray carpet and changed to a light, bleached looking pinkish color. I have tried everything to clean it but really the color was altered.
