Clean the Fabric: Spray the fabric upholstery cleaner evenly over the sofa and use a soft-bristle brush or upholstery brush to gently scrub the fabric.

Tips and Tricks
Regular Maintenance: Vacuum your Tech Sofa regularly to prevent dust and dirt from settling into the fabric or leather.
Blot, Don't Rub: When dealing with spills or stains, always blot the area with a clean cloth instead of rubbing to avoid spreading the stain.
Rotate Cushions: To ensure even wear, rotate and flip your sofa cushions periodically.
Sunlight: Avoid placing your sofa in direct sunlight to prevent fading of colours and drying out of leather.
Common Cleaning MistakesUsing Harsh Chemicals: Avoid using harsh chemicals or bleach, as they can damage the fabric or leather.
Over-wetting: Excess moisture can lead to mould and mildew growth, so avoid over-wetting the sofa during cleaning.
Skipping the Test: Always test cleaning products on a hidden area of your sofa first to check for any adverse reactions.
