cleaning microfiber

I have some beige microfiber dining room chairs. A small amount of soot drifted onto a couple chairs from outside and I don't know how to clean it. There is no cleaning label under the chair. They are made by Crate & Barrel. Any suggestions are appreciated.

RE: cleaning microfiber

I would suggest that you check with the store that you bought your furniture from. I was told when I bought my microfibe furniture that you could clean it with any type of alcohol based cleaner. The guy in the showroom actually demonstrated by drawing with a ball point pen and cleaning it with a lysol spray.

Hope this help you.

Thanks Mellbee. I'll call them.

RE: cleaning microfiber

I have a light colored microfiber sectional. I mix a solution of oxyclean (store brand) and very very warm water and use it to clean. It looks brand new when I am done. Usually I use a rag, wring it out and then just wipe it down... takes off dog slobbers, kid slobbers and anything else that is on it.

Check in a hidden location to make sure yours are colorfast. If it is a true microfiber, you should use a water-based cleaner.

RE: cleaning microfiber

I also have a microfiber sectional that I've had for 12 years. I just scrub it down with hot water and Dawn soap with a rag. After kids, dogs, cats, ferrets, kool-aid and everything else, it still looks really really good. Now that the kids are grown and all, I just clean less, of course.
