  2. Vacuum the furniture

  3. Apply detergent

    Pour equal parts ammonia-free detergent and water into a bucket. Agitate the mixture with your hands. Scrub the furniture with the detergent solution and a cloth. Dip another cloth into the water, wring it out and wipe away the detergent. Dry the furniture with a towel, and rinse the bucket.

  4. Spray the furniture with bleach

    Pour a gallon of water into the bucket, and add 1/4 cup chlorine bleach. Mix the solution, and pour it into a plastic spray bottle. Spray the furniture with the diluted bleach, leave it on for six hours, and then move the furniture outside. Let it dry in the sunlight, and then inspect it. If the furniture has a dull film on it, wipe it with a cloth soaked in mineral spirits.
