How to clean upholstered furniture

There are various ways to clean your upholstered furniture, depending on how the fabric is coded.

To find the fabric code, look for the tag on your furniture. There should be a line that states "fabric care" followed by one or two letters.

If you are looking for home decor fabric, the hang tag or special order hanger will also include this code.

This is what your code means & how to clean that fabric.

Fabric Cleaning Codes:
