How To Clean A Microfiber Recliner?

Today, recliners are not only comfortable but also fashionable. They come in different colors, sizes, and upholstery to suit everyone’s taste. One of the most common upholstery materials used in recliners is microfiber, such as polyester.

And the most common problem with microfiber recliners is that they’re usually difficult to clean and maintain. In this article, we’ll show you how to clean a microfiber recliner the right way.

Tools You’ll Need For Cleaning A Microfiber Recliner

  • Lint roller
  • Soft-bristled brush
  • Vacuum cleaner with an upholstery attachment
  • Mild dish soap or upholstery cleaner
  • Clean, dry towel

Cleaning A Microfiber Recliner – Best Method

Step 1: Remove The Lint And Dust

Start with the lint roller and roll it over the surface of your recliner. Be sure to cover all the areas, including the seams, creases, and tufts.

Next, use the soft-bristled brush to gently brush off any remaining lint and dust.

Step 2: Vacuum The Recliner

This will help remove any dirt, pet hair, or other debris clinging to the fabric.

Use the upholstery attachment on your vacuum cleaner and go over the entire recliner, paying special attention to the seams and corners.

Step 3: Spot-Clean The Recliner

Now it’s time to spot-clean your recliner. This step is important because it will help remove any stains or dirt embedded in the fabric.

To spot-clean your recliner, you’ll need a mild dish soap or upholstery cleaner diluted in water.

Dampen a clean, dry towel in the solution, and then use it to wipe down the stained areas of your recliner.

Be sure to blot the stains, not rub them, as this could spread the stain and make it harder to remove.

Step 4: Dry The Recliner

Once you’ve spot-cleaned the recliner, it’s important to dry it off completely. Use a clean, dry towel to blot the damp areas.

You can also use a hairdryer on a low setting to help speed up the drying process. Just be sure not to get the fabric too wet, as this could damage the microfiber.

Step 5: Protect The Recliner

To protect your recliner and keep it looking new, it’s important to use a fabric protector. This will help repel stains and dirt, making it easier to keep your recliner clean in the future.

And that’s it! These are the simple steps you need to follow to clean a microfiber recliner. Just be sure to do it periodically, and your recliner will stay looking like new for years to come.
