If you have ever spilled liquid on your sofa, you probably know about the horror of trying to remove water stains from your furniture. As you try to wipe up the spill, it seems to grow as you attempt to clean it. In many cases simply wiping it with water can make it worse, but how else can you successfully clean the stain?
Luckily, there are different ways to remove water stains from your sofa. If you find a spill on your sofa, don't worry—there are things you can try to remove it.
The way to remove water stains is generally dependant on the fabric that your sofa is made of. Depending on whether your sofa is cotton, micro fiber, leather, or something else, you will want to take that into consideration when attempting to remove the stain.

Keep in mind that different fabrics have particular cleaning instructions. Look at the cleaning instructions for your sofa to learn more. For instance, if you see W, you can use a water-based cleaner to clean, while an X mean you can only vacuum the fabric to clean it. If the stain will not come out, contact an upholstery cleaner. A specialist might be able to save your furniture if nothing else helps.
