For those of you who like details I’ll give you a brief description of how we clean.
Wet Cleaning: The best way to clean is with water. If your fabric can be wet cleaned that is how we will clean it. First we will vacuum, and then we will pre-spray spots to loosen that particular type of stain. Then we will spray the entire piece of furniture with a live enzyme that has a soil releasing agent, and then we will rinse the furniture with a special additive. This additive “invites” or “attracts” the soil to it, taking or transferring the soil from your furniture into itself and out of your fabric. The rinse water is not recycled, and your furniture is left nearly dry. We use the same wet method for cleaning carpeting…

The Silliest and Easiest Way to Clean a Dirty Whisk

Clean Workout Clothes
“My favorite workout T-shirts come out of the laundry smelling good, but then after being worn for a couple hours they start to stink like a wet dog. What’s up with that? How can I get them really clean so the smell stays gone?”
Wash like fabrics together
Avoid washing athletic gear, especially if it has stretch in it, with towels, fleece and other linty items, as well as with very heavy garments, like jeans and sweatshirts. Athletic clothes with stretch in them will pick up stray lint in the wash, and heavy items can lead to pilling and damage to more delicate athleisure-wear…
No fabric softener
Fabric softener leaves a coating on clothing that can lead to odor retention, even in clean laundry. That coating, especially when it builds up, makes it harder for water and detergent to fully penetrate the fibers, trapping odor-causing bacteria…
Whether you’re rearranging or moving out, heavy furniture can leave behind quite the unattractive footprint on your carpet — and the longer the furniture has been there, the harder it is to persuade those carpet fibers to spring back into shape.

How do you clean a microfiber couch? To clean microfiber, load up a spray bottle with rubbing alcohol, or pop a spray top right onto the bottle, and spray the soiled areas of your sofa. Use a clean cloth to blot and gently rub at the stains to lift them out of the fabric.
Deep-Clean. Sprinkle the entire couch with a good heap of baking soda. Baking soda helps release lurking smells and break up stains in the fabric. If you’re feeling your sofa really needs a serious clean, mix together this dry natural carpet cleaner, and then use for covering the fabric.
Rinse the sponge and use just water to blot out some of the soap mixture. Press dry with a cloth or paper towels. If your furniture cannot be cleaned with water, use vinegar or vodka on a cloth to blot the stains. The smell of both vinegar and vodka will disappear when the area is dry.
Combine 1/2 cup white vinegar and 1 cup warm water in a spray bottle, for use on plastic, nylon and synthetic leather upholstery. If the furniture is badly soiled, add 1/2 tablespoon of natural liquid soap…
Wipe the toothpaste off with a clean damp cloth and dry thoroughly. Once your furniture is clean, wipe a layer of wood polish on it to preserve the finish and add shine. You can use commercially prepared lemon oil. You can also make a simple polish by mixing 1 cup of olive oil with 1/4 cup white vinegar.
