Full Answer

Vacuum microfiber furniture with a vacuum cleaner with a bristled upholstery attachment at least once a week. This helps to get rid of dirt and prevent it from grinding into the fabric. Gently brush the furniture with a nylon-bristled scrub brush when not using a vacuum cleaner.

Blot spills as quickly as possible to avoid stains. Use a plain white cloth to blot the spill, pressing the cloth down and lifting it. To remove stains, pour rubbing alcohol into a spray bottle, and spray the stains lightly. Gently rub the spots with a white sponge, and allow the areas to air dry before brushing with a nylon-bristled scrub brush.

Gently scrub water-safe microfiber furniture with soap suds to clean. Make soap suds with warm water and dish-washing liquid, and apply generous amounts onto a dry sponge or white cloth. Be careful not to get water on the sponge or cloth. Gently rub the furniture in a circular motion before using a dry white cloth to blot away the suds. Finish by gently brushing with a nylon-bristled scrub brush to keep the soft texture of the microfiber.
