Microsuede fabrics are considered very easy to keep clean. In general, stain removal does not require washing, and most stains can be eliminated with the dab of a cloth dampened in warm water. To remove dried stains, such as coffee rings, gently brush the area and remove any residue with a vacuum. If the stain remains, place paper towels behind the stain and softly wipe the area with a clean cloth dampened with warm water. To remove oil-based stains, place paper towels behind the stain and blot the stain to remove as much oil as possible. Use a clean cloth soaked in rubbing alcohol to blot the stain. Use a dry cloth to remove any loosened dirt and oil, and allow the fabric to dry thoroughly. To eliminate wax and chewing gum from microsuede, place several ice cubes in a plastic bag and apply it firmly to the area. When the wax or gum hardens, carefully peel it away from the fabric. Remove any residue with a cloth dampened with rubbing alcohol.
