FiberCare is an invisible, long-lasting finish that protects against spots, stains and spills. FiberCare works by impregnating fibers with co-polymer resins in a mineral spirit base.
This means dust and dirt can’t get trapped within the fiber. Spills can be easily blotted up, dirt and grit can be more effectively removed by vacuuming or damp dusting, thereby, increasing fiber life.
FiberCare can be applied to all fibers, even those that have been temporarily protected with mill level finishes such as Scotchguard or Teflon.
FiberCare protects against both oil-based and water-based stains.
Ruth Travis, president of the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification, says that to remove stains and odors, blot up as much of the smelly mess as you can right away.
While you’re blotting the upholstery, put a plastic liner or a garbage bag between the cushion and the fabric so you don’t push the contaminant into the cushion. Then flush with cold water as best you can. Blot and flush again. Cold water doesn’t set stains as much as hot water.
You can also use a portable spot cleaner or wet/dry vac. If there’s still a residual odor, use a half-vinegar, half-water solution and rinse again.
If that doesn’t work, call in the professionals.

If you have children who enjoy playing in the sprinkler or pool when the weather warms up, consider purchasing seat covers for your chairs and couches to keep them dry and clean.
If your chair or sofa has arm covers, clean them regularly according to manufacturers’ instructions. While waiting for them to be usable again, use seasonally themed tea towels in their place instead.
If you are unsure of how to clean your leather sofa or chair, read the tags attached to it to determine the type of leather and coating. However, it is always best to consult with a professional before you try to clean your leather furniture yourself.
