Full Answer

The proper method to clean stains that have set in on microfiber depends on the fabric's cleaning code. Microfiber cleaning codes include W, S or S-W. Microfiber cloths with a W cleaning code are cleaned using water. This means that the fabric is either washed gently by hand or washed in the washing machine according to the manufacturer's instructions. Microfiber fabrics typically require warm water and a mild detergent when washed. Do not use fabric softener or detergents that contain fabric softener on the fabric. Microfiber with an S cleaning code must be cleaned using a solvent, such as rubbing alcohol or a special dry cleaning solution. Spray the rubbing alcohol or cleaning solution directly on the stain, and blot the stain with a clean white cloth. Continue the treatment until the stain is removed. An S-W cleaning code or fabrics that do not have a code are cleaned using water or a solvent.
