How To Clean Urine Stains From Microfiber Sofa

If you have kids or pets, knowing how to clean urine stains from a microfiber sofa will keep your house from looking like a filthy urine factory. The tightly-woven fibers that microfiber fabric is made of make microfiber an ideal fabric for furniture because it is able to repel most spills and is easy to clean. However, don't think that just because your microfiber sofa is made to be durable that you don't have to do a little bit of work to get rid of urine stains. If a urine stain isn't dealt with quickly it can soak into the padding of your microfiber sofa, making the urine stain almost impossible to remove. And there's also the horrible smell that comes along with urine stains. The best way to clean urine stains from your microfiber sofa is to treat the urine stain as soon as it happens. This will make sure that the urine doesn't seep into the padding and cause a permanent urine stain. Cleaning urine stains off microfiber sofas doesn't require expensive cleaning solutions if the stain is treated quickly. All of the things you need to clean urine stains from your microfiber sofa can be found around the house or at the grocery store.

To clean urine stains off microfiber furniture, you will need:

  • A clean towel or paper towel
  • Baking soda
  • A vacuum cleaner with a hose attachment
  • Commercial microfiber fabric cleaner (optional)
  1. Dab the urine stain with a clean cloth or paper towel. This will soak up the urine that is sitting on the surface of your microfiber furniture and keep the urine from seeping into the padding of your microfiber furniture, where it could create a permanent stain. Try to soak as much urine as you can into your paper towel. Do not try to clean urine stains on microfiber furniture with soap and water. Water can seep into the fibers of the microfiber and cause it to warp. Soap, no matter how mild, contains particles that can wedge in between the fibers of your microfiber furniture. This can ruin your microfiber furniture's ability to repel stains, ruin the color and warp the microfiber fabric.
  2. Sprinkle baking soda on the stained area. Let the baking soda sit on top of the urine-stained area of your microfiber furniture for about five minutes. Using baking soda on the urine-stained area will trap any excess urine that may be trying to soak its way into the padding of your microfiber furniture. It will also help neutralize and destroy any odor that the urine may have left behind.
  3. Use a vacuum cleaner to remove the baking soda. Using the hose attachment of your vacuum cleaner will get rid of the urine-soaked baking soda without making a mess on your floors or the rest of your microfiber furniture. It will also help to dry any damp spots left behind by the urine stain.
  4. Buy a commercial cleaner deigned for microfiber furniture. For urine stains that have been allowed to set for a long time, you may have to buy a commercial cleaner to get rid of the urine stain on your microfiber furniture. These products are designed to treat any kind of stain that your microfiber furniture may come in contact with. Follow the product instructions for cleaning the urine stains on your microfiber furniture.
