Things to Consider When Cleaning a Sofa Sack

Generally, the two main things you should consider when you clean the Sofa sack. These are fabric and fillers. It is a must to be aware of these two.

  • What fabric comes with your Sofa sack
  • What are the fillers consisting in it? 

So, the cleaning method will depend on the answers to the above two questions. 

Plus, you should clarify whether you clean the outer cover or the whole Sofa sack with fillers. No matter what your selection is, I am here to help you. 

Clean Micro Suede Sofa Sack Cover

Almost all the sofa sacks are covered with Micro-suede fabric to enhance the user’s comfortability in all ways. So, what is this Micro-suede fabric? 

In brief, Micro-suede is a synthetic and soft nappy material that is closely similar to animal suede both in appearance and touch. 

Why is Micro-suede used for sofa sacks? Simply it will offer an ultra-comfortable feel to sofa sack users. 

  • More stain resistant 
  • Easier to clean with home-based cleaning products 
  • Less expensive than suede 
  • More water repellent 
  • Keep fabric spot free 

So, as I mentioned above, check out whether the outer cover is removable. Most probably, it can be removable. Then start your work!

Step 1: Read the instructions carefully.

Almost all the peoples misunderstand that Micro-suede is the same as regular suede. It is not the truth. 

However, when you clean a Micro-suede sofa sack, ensure it is safe. The reason is that the water and soap can leave water rings for many synthetic materials, including Micro-suede. So, it may spoil your sofa sac more than before. 

So, how do we know your Micro-suede sofa sack is safe to wash or not? 

Check the label on your sofa sack. It is the solution, and if you can find out one that I below mention and then go through it. 

S       – use solvent-based cleaners only 

W – use water only 

W/S – use water or solvent-based cleansers 

X – avoid using water and solvent-based cleaners. Apply vacuum only. 

Step 2: Wash your Micro-suede sofa sack cover.

If the label of your sofa sack mentions that it is water-friendly, you can lather up your Micro-suede sofa sack. 

Here, you do not need to clean the whole outer cover. So, treat only for stains. You can follow these steps. 

  1. Vacuum the sofa sack to remove loose debris.
  2. Lightly spray the water.
  3. Lightly dab it but do not wipe. 
  4. If the stain is still retaining, repeat with sudsy water.
  5. Dry the wet clean sofa sac with a blow dryer to set on a cold or cool setting because it will help to prevent water stains.

Here you may have a question regarding only using the water. Micro-suede is tightly woven and dense. 

So, it avoids absorbing water and dirt deeply and stops them at surface level. Therefore, you can remove the stains by quick wipe in many cases.  

However, if the stain remains, you can spray the microfiber cleaning product and wipe it off with a wet rag. 

Plus, you can throw heavily soiled Micro-suede in the washing machine. It also has the proper path. Go on it.
