Commonly Asked Cleaning Questions

What is the best way to remove a "standard" stain form my  Revolution sofa?

Most stains can be removed by making a solution of one ounce of bleach to 30 ounces of water in a clean spray bottle (Most spray bottles are 32 ounces). If possible, place a clean towel between the fabric and foam cushion to absorb any excess moisture. Set the nozzle to “fan” the spray pattern and wet out the entire side of the cover where the stain is. Then wipe the entire cover with a clean cloth to remove any excess moisture. Then spray the same area with clean water to rinse the bleach solution out of the fabric. Again wipe the entire cover with a clean cloth to remove any excess moisture. Allow the cover to air dry or it can be dried using a hairdryer.

I have already tried to remove the stain from my sofa and it isn't gone completely, what should I do?

The stain is most likely some type of residue from the stain that was not completely removed. This will happen with spot cleaning at times or with more difficult stains. Make a solution of two ounces of bleach to 30 ounces of water in a clean spray bottle (Most spray bottles are 32 ounces). If possible, place a clean towel between the fabric and the foam cushion to absorb any excess moisture. Set the nozzle to “fan” the spray pattern and wet out the entire side of the cover where the stain is. Then wipe the entire cover with a clean cloth to remove any excess moisture. Then spray the same area with clean water to rinse the bleach solution out of the fabric. Again wipe the entire cover with a clean cloth to remove any excess moisture. Allow the cover to air dry or it can be dried using a hairdryer. If this does not remove the stain, the cover may require steam cleaning.

How do I clean an "oil stain"  on my sofa (such as salad dressing, mustard or sunblock)?

You can initially try cleaning the stain using a “baby wipe”. If this does not remove the stain, make a solution of 30 ounces of water to two ounces of a mild dish detergent such as Dawn. (Most spray bottles are 32 ounces). If possible, place a clean towel between the fabric and the foam cushion to absorb any excess moisture. Set the nozzle to “fan” the spray pattern and wet out the entire side of the cover where the stain is. Then rub/blot the area where the stain is to remove the stain, then wipe the entire cover with a clean cloth to remove any excess moisture. This will foam when you rub it. Then spray the same area with clean water to rinse the cleaning solution out of the fabric. Again wipe the entire cover with a clean cloth to remove any excess moisture. You may need to rinse several times to remove the solution. Allow the cover to air dry or it can be dried using a hairdryer. If this does not remove the stain, the cover may require steam cleaning.

What products do you recommend for cleaning my sofa? Are there any products that I shouldn't use to clean Revolution?

Most any general house cleaner will work, as most are NOT solvent based. Some of the more popular cleaners are Lysol, OxiClean or Dawn dish detergent.  Revolution is also bleach cleanable (the fabric will NOT discolor, even dark colors). When using any cleaner, we recommend using 1 ounce of bleach or cleaner to 32 ounces of water and using a spray bottle to thoroughly clean the stain (reference question #1 for greater detail). Don’t use any type of dry cleaning solvent and do not apply any type of after-market fabric protector. A good clue to determine if a product is solvent based is if it is flammable. Any product that is flammable and/or solvent based, we do NOT recommend using to clean Revolution. 

How can I prevent soiling and what can I do regularly to keep my fabric looking new on my sofa?

Frequent vacuuming of the fabric will help prevent any soiling build up on the fabric. Just do not use any type of vacuum power brush attachment when vacuuming as this can damage the fabric. Should the fabric become stained or soiled, you can make a mixture in a spray bottle of 1 ounce of bleach to 30 ounces of water (most spray bottles are 32 ounces). Set the spray nozzle to "fan" the spray pattern and spray the entire area that needs to be cleaned. It is okay to wet out the fabric. Then wipe the cover with a clean towel to remove any excess moisture. Then spray the cover with clean water to rinse out any residual bleach solution, and wipe this down also. Then just allow the fabric to air dry. You can also use "baby wipes" to clean small, oily stains. The fabric can also be steam cleaned if necessary.

I purchased a fabric protection plan from the store I bought my furniture from. Does that void my warranty?

The application of any stain repellant fabric treatment to Revolution Fabrics does void the Revolution warranty. We have seen many instances where the solvents used in these treatments break down our yarns and back coating. If a stain repellent treatment is applied, any problems with the fabric would become the responsibility of the company applying the treatment.
