How Can I Tell If My Microfiber Upholstery Fabric Is Water Safe?

Microfiber upholstery is a very durable product that is resistant to stains. It is not always completely protected, however, against all stains and all liquids. If you find you need to clean your upholstery, first look for the manufacturer's label, which will tell you if it is water safe. If your upholstery does not have a label with cleaning instructions, you can do one of three things. You can contact the manufacturer to inquire about the water resistance, test an inconspicuous spot, such as under the bottom of a chair, or use a dry cleaning method with products made specially for the task.  You could also hire a professional to dry clean it.
